Gee, at this rate, Eddie Murphy might tie or surpass Stallone's all-time record of 10 "wins," and in a matter of only three years!

Why is this the only "Worst on DVD This Week"? There is also Fred
Claus
, Space Chimps, and (arguably)Hancock. It should be a
Quadrifecta this week.

I just watched this from Netflix and it actually was not as bad as I expected it
to be. Granted, it is still not a "good" movie, but it is still generally
competent, with Eddie Murphy doing his usual shtick, and some of it actually
works. In fact, if one found a better director and screenwriter, this actually
could have worked as "good" family entertainment. Still not one of the better
efforts of the year, it doesn't stand a chance against The Love Guru and
Disaster Movie.

"Not as bad as expected"? Did we see the same movie??

I, too, just saw this on a NetFlix DVD, and while it wasn't nearly as painful to sit through as Murphy's all-time worst "Pluto Nash," it still fell flat about 94% of the time, felt mostly forced and unfunny, and had a "plot" about as predictable as a TV sit-com. Not Eddie's worst, but far from being among his best... 

Everything SUX!

Again, I am not praising the movie, I am saying that while it does fall flat most of the time, there are some occasionally clever jokes in the otherwise mediocre material.

When you look at some of the truly awful comedies of 2008, (like Meet the Spartans/Disaster Movie and The Love Guru) Meet Dave, and/or some of Eddie Murphy's other work (like Pluto Nash) Dave does not stand a chance...

As we all know, she was WRONG.


WHAT??? I'm a total Lost addict, but I never knew that! Crazy!

***/*****

Months ago I said this was one of the funniest movies of 2008,and I was crucified by that.After re-watching the movie I don't change my opinion.However,it doesn't mean it was one of the best movies of the year.

This movie really seemed like a family movie based on the simple humour(which was good)and a few plot holes that can only be noticed by critics.However,this movie made the mistake of adding things that made it PG-13.Therefor,this can't be enjoyed by the audience(late teens and adults)because they're not the target.I was lucky that I saw it when I was 17.

I give it 4,5/C-/50%.

Well, that's the critics' job ... and the Razzies'. At least you didn't give it a 4 our of 5 stars or whatnot, like someone else might.
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.
