    Wow, it took Ben Stiller over 20 years to figure out how to make his movies not look like garbage. I’m sure he’s going to think he deserves an award for copying Wes Anderson’s aesthetic, and I’m sure Hollywood will seriously consider it, because they also like the fascimile better than they like they original, cf. Crash winning an Acdemy Award while it’s progenitor, Magnolia, wasn’t even nominated.
