UNDERRATED 'Zero Effect': Seeing Bill Pullman in last year's middling "Bottle Shock" reminded us of our fondness for the character actor's chops, particularly in this buried treasure from 1998. Directed by a then-23-year-old Jake Kasdan and buoyed by a quietly exasperated Ben Stiller as sidekick to Pullman's eccentric detective Daryl Zero, this comedy is worth getting to know. Got time for a sequel?
