Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES - WITH LEIGH PAATSCH

8.30PM, ELEVEN ★★★

Ben Stiller stars as Reuben Fef­fer, an overly con­ser­va­tive in­sur­ance com­pany risk as­ses­sor whose scrupu­lously pre­dictable ex­is­tence is blown to smithereens when he dis­cov­ers his new bride in bed with a French scuba in­struc­tor on the first day of their hon­ey­moon. While try­ing to piece his life back to­gether, Reuben falls un­der the spell of Polly (Jen­nifer Anis­ton), a no­madic and dis­or­gan­ised free spirit who soon sets about lur­ing her new beau into all man­ner of com­pro­mis­ing sit­u­a­tions. Egging Reuben on is his buddy Sandy Lyle (Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man), a washed-up teen movie icon.
