I’ve not read the original story by James Thurber. I did see the 1947 film starring Danny Kaye as a kid, but don’t remember anything about it. So, I don’t have any connection to the source material and had no opinion at all about Ben Stiller’s adaptation. My knee-jerk reaction was that it would be another frat guy comedy, the kind you generally expect from Stiller, Jack Black, or Will Ferrell. However, the trailer looks good in a Wes Anderson-y way.
