Eddie Murphy has been allowed to do multiple roles ever since The Nutty Professor was so successful.  However, he's failed to capture lightning in a bottle.

This came in 7th place at the box-office. "Hellboy II" was first, "Hancock" was 2, and "Journey To The Center Of The Earth" was 3rd.

"Coming to America" is the only movie I can think of where Eddie Murphy played multiple roles AND was actually funny. But over the past 20 years since that movie was released, his formula of the one-man cast has failed him. I'm glad this movie bombed, I only hope the same will be said for "Disaster Movie".

Interestingly, this crappy movie was written by Bill Corbett (of MST3K fame). Thought he would know a crappy movie when he saw one, but I guess after seeing all the reviews on "Meet Dave," he can always riff on his own movie...  
Seltzerberg is back?

OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!

Well, I think I can lock in my 5 choices for WORST ACTOR now:  Eddie
Murphy, MEET DAVE


Mike Myers, THE LOVE GURU


Adam Sandler, ZOHAN


Sylvester Stallone, RAMBLOW 


Ben Stein, EXPELLED 
Right now, I wonder if anyone else can surpass the
level of awfulness these 5 have already achieved. And we still have half the
year to go... I only wish I could vote for Uwe Boll as WORST ACTOR
based on his You Tube rant!  



On Edit--Will Ferrell is just ASKING for it

No doubt Eddie's already looking forward anxiously to the 4th Shrek film Dreamworks has long planned, since voicing the Donkey's pretty much all he's got left (as this clearly evidences).

Below is a LINK to a whole article about Murphy's career being on life support. The worst news: Murphy is teaming up with the same director of "Norbit" and "Meet Dave" for a THIRD time in a movie about a guy who will die if he speaks one thousands words. I can think of 3 words to go along with those 1,000...and they start with "WTF?!"

Please, after seeing Harlem Nights on cable again, I can guess that 500 of
those last 1,000 words would be the four letter one that starts with "F"

I'm not sure if that would happen. He's become such a "family icon" that he hardly ever swears in his movies. Compare that to "Trading Places," were he swore every five seconds. Also, that movie had a laugh every five seconds...

I liked him in Delirious which was a documentary of his standup routine. He was also good in Bowfinger and Boomerang, so he can be funny...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I have always thought there are few things sadder (or more RAZZIE® worthy) than a genuine talent just going through the motions. And (except for DREAMGIRLS) that's exactly what Eddie Murphy has been doing for the last decade or so...

IMDB is currently doing a viewers poll to see who is doing worst with their respective carreer's...Eddie Murphy or Mike Meyers, click here to vote! (You most register with IMDB to do so, but it is free)

Eddie Murphy's looking to actually defend his title as Worst Actor (has anyone else done that?).  The only real competition he has is Mike Myers.

I'm pretty sure The Sly Guy has won back-to-back, given his track record with the Razzies. But Murphy may soon share that "honor" with him...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Yes, indeed, Stallone did "win" back-to-back Worst Actor statuettes for in 1984 (RHINESTONE) and 1985 (RAMBO II and ROCKY IV). Our Awl-Time Male Runner Up Kevin Costner  was a RAZZIE Three-pete as Worst Actor during the 1990s, but never "won" back-to-back...
