Two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video rental store. In order to keep the business running, they re-shoot every film in the store with their own camera, with a budget of zero dollars.
To become the greatest band of all time, two slacker, wannabe-rockers set out on a quest to steal a legendary guitar pick that gives its holders incredible guitar skills, from a maximum security Rock and Roll museum.
Colm (Barry McEvoy) is a Catholic, and George (Brian O'Byrne) is a poetry-loving Protestant. In Belfast, Northern Ireland in the 1980s, they could have been enemies, but instead, they ... See full summary »
Ben Stiller and Jack Black star as Tim and Nick, best friends, neighbors and co-workers, whose equal footing is suddenly tripped up when one of Nick's harebrained get-rich-quick schemes actually succeeds: Vapoorizer, a spray that literally makes dog poop, or any other kind for that matter, evaporate into thin air -- to where exactly is anyone's guess. Tim, who had scoffed at Nick's idea and passed on an opportunity to get in on the deal, can only watch as Nick's fortune -- and Tim's own envy -- grow to equally outrageous proportions. When the flames of jealousy are fanned by an oddball drifter (Walken) who imposes himself into the situation, Tim's life careens wildly out of control ... taking Nick's with it.Written by
The movie having been shot almost two years before it was released in theaters was in danger of being released straight to video due to poor audience response during test screenings. It was only due to School of Rock (2003)'s huge success that it finally got a theatrical release. See more »

this movie doesn't deserve to be called the worst ever. This weekend I saw two movies that were less entertaining than Envy: they were Dickie Roberts and Van Hellsing. Now, those two movies were just stupid. While Envy didn't really make me laugh, I did find it somewhat entertaining. All the things Nick buys once he makes his millions was funny. Plus, just the concept and demonstration of his invention was amusing. And all the people picketing at his wife's political office asking "where does the **it go", which is exactly what Tim asks. I didn't really care for Christopher Walken's character. I didn't think the J-man added much.
FINAL VERDICT: I'm not sure why this movie has gotten the reputation as being one of the worst movies ever. I don't think it is. So, if you like movies that really don't require brain power, then I recommend this one.
