Larry David’s next film project was essentially a remake of his previous one. Like Sour Grapes before it, Envy is also about a falling out between two friends over money, only this time there’s a product involved called the Vapoorizer. (The less said, the better.) David conceived of the story idea with Steve Adams, and allegedly co-wrote the script. In the credits, however, he is only billed as executive producer. It’s not hard to see why he wouldn’t want his involvement publicized more; while Sour Grapes bombed with Craig Bierko and Steven Webber as the leads, Envy starred Ben Stiller and Jack Black at the height of their commercial powers, and it still tanked.
