The Royal Tenenbaums

I can't help feeling I missed something about this film. The point, perhaps.

We were given the DVD as a Christmas present and thought we'd watch it this evening. It starts slowly and fails to build from there; the characters are, largely, unlikeable or insufficiently developed (Anjelica Huston is particularly underutilised). It probably doesn't help that I find Ben Stiller annoying - Mystery Men worked for me in spite of him, but I couldn't watch more than ten minutes of There's Something About Mary.

Not inspired.
