Comedy, Sci-Fi
The Eddie Murphy Shit Parade continues with this lame-brained attempt at a science-fiction comedy from director Brian Robbins, who gave us the atrocious Norbit. This time, Murphy stars as Dave, an alien spaceship that looks like a human. Dave comes to our planet looking for an ocean-sucking device that his pilot and captain (also Murphy) lost. The device is needed to save his own planet, but the captain gets hung up on hanging out with an earthly widow (the talented Elizabeth Banks) and her son. His planet will just have to wait while the Dave spaceship goes to carnivals, gets hit by cars and wins hotdog-eating contests. Murphy is stiff in both roles, but he’s especially bad as the captain, sounding not unlike the character he played in Coming to America. Dave has a couple of amusing moments in which he tries to impersonate humans, but there’s nothing here worthy of Murphy’s talents. Inexplicably, Murphy will re-team with Robbins for yet another movie to be released next year. Bad idea!
