I never knew Ben Stiller was so attractive.
10 March 2004 | by c7530303See all my reviews

Seeing the two side by side (Tom Cruise and "Tom Crooze") I realize that they really DO look alike. It was spooky and funny. Very funny.

This short bonus/extra to the Mission Impossible II DVD was absolutely hilarious. It shows highlights of the 14 movie career of stunt double Tom Crooze, from Risky Business to Cocktail to Magnolia, and now to Mission Impossible II.

Ben Stiller is not only a gifted comic, he's a magical mimic. I loved every expression of his (he got the Tom mega-smile down, the Tom laugh, the Tom underwear dance, etc.), every body stance, every motion he made as "Tom" was just right on and so funny. The best scenes were the two men interacting side by side, dressed identically.

Tom (the real one) is sure a good sport to not only put up with this silliness but partake in it.

Favorite clip was Ben as the bartender in Cocktail. No, wait, it's his look at Frank Mackey in Magnolia.

You've got to see this.
