Ben Stiller’s brand of exasperated embarrassment is on display once again as he plays Reuben Feffer, a risk assessor for a huge insurance firm. His methods prove
pointless when he meets Polly Prince, one of those movie free spirits that you usually want to lock in a closet. This time, as played by Jennifer Aniston, she’s actually fun. The irony that keeps Along Came Polly running is that Reuben is more of a loose cannon than Polly. Further
pleasures come from a goofy supporting cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Hank Azaria as a philosophizing, scuba-diving nudist.
