HERE's a GOOD "RULE of DUMB" FORYA: ANY TIME a BIG BUDGET/HIGH PROFILE MOVIE CHANGES ITS TITLE PRIOR to RELEASE, THAT's NOT a SIGN the MOVIE IS "TESTING WELL." 

HERE's ANOTHER ONE: ANY TIME a MOVIE TOP-LINES SOMEONE WHO JUST SET a RAZZIE® RECORD by "WINNING" THREE WORST AWARDS in a SINGLE YEAR, THAT's ALSO NOT a SIGN IT's GONNA BE ANY GOOD...

AND a THIRD: ANY TIME a MOVIE RE-UNITES a STAR WHOOZ "WON" 3 RECENT RAZZIES® with the RAZZIE®-NOMINATED HELMSMAN WHO DIRECTED THAT ACTOR to HIZ "WINS," THAT's ALSO NOT a GOOD SIGN...

BY THESE THREE RULES of DUMB, MEET DAVE (FORMERLY STARSHIP DAVE) COULD BE EDDIE MURPHY's ANSWER to THE LOVE GURU.

BUT TELL ME, DAVE, WHAT DO YOU THINK??

MURPHY: "In the tradition of my RAZZIE® 'winning' performance as Rasputia last year, I wanted to play The Statue of Liberty in MEET DAVE. But the producers refused to be convinced by this audition photo..."

Between this piece of sh*t and "Love Guru", it's proof positive that "Shrek" is the only thing left in the not-so-bright careers of Myers and Murphy.

Every billboard advertising this movie shows Eddie Murphy IN Eddie
Murphy., so would that qualify Eddie for another shot at WORST SCREEN

We might also want to consider Gabrielle Union for Worst Actress, from what I saw in the trailer...

Yet another movie where Murphy plays multiple roles? Is that a clause in his contract, that he only does movies where he plays more than one character?

As much as I love Gabrielle Union, she should get a nod just for her bad decision making when it comes to choosing what projects to take. She was offered the role of Kate from the TV series "Lost", but she turned it down because the show didn't make sense to her and she thought it would fail within its first season. As we all know, she was WRONG.

So, a TV series about people trapped on an island makes no sense for her, but a movie about tiny aliens that look like humans and that operate inside a robot that looks like Eddie Murphy makes complete sense?

As of right now, Rotten Tomatoes has only one review, and it's positive.

"The Black Dahlia" has good review at first. Then, they went down to the Rotten zone.

The fact that this opens tomorrow and has only ONE review on R.T. (meaning it was obviously not screened in time for reviews to be released before the movie is) clearly tells you what the releasing studio thinks of the film: It's a piece of (starts with SH and ends with IT)...

As already mentioned, not being screened for critics is a sign of worse things to come...Plus, the trailers do not make it look appealing either.

Plus, it's going up against HellBoy 2, which has a bigger following. So that combined with the lack of critics seeing it speaks volumes about how badly it will suck.

And it's not going to get any higher than that.

With Sylvester Stallone to contend with, I don't think Eddie Murphy has much to worry about Razzie-wise this year.  Based on the trailer, I don't feel this movie will be anywhere near as bad as Norbit.  It looks like just a dumb movie, nothing less (and nothing more) --unfortunately!

Eddie Murphey is usually barely tolerable in one role. I am also mystified as to why he is invariably permitted to play several, unless his production company is too cheap to hire more actors. Based upon the quality of the scripts, the suspicion is that they are also too cheap to hire writers. A team of monkeys banging away at keyboards, sparsely paid in bananas is evidently the norm.
