Meet Dave trailer

Mar. 25, 2008by: Ben Barna
Lately Eddie Murphy comedies have become a source of ridicule, amongst scholars and philistines alike. The fact that NORBIT was nominated for an Oscar became one of the most played-out punchlines of the 2008 awards season. Based on the trailer for his new effect-driven comedy MEET DAVE, Eddie will likely face the same kind of wrath from moviegoers and critics alike, but I was somewhat impressed. Even though the title features the same red-block font against white background as pretty much all his comedies do, at least this isnt Murphy playing stock characters in pounds of makeup. This movie looks to have some imagination, with a side of creativity. Wait, I just watched it againand no, this isnt some writing gimmick, I actually did just watch it a second timeand I take back what I said before. This film looks pretty awful. Its not funny, thats for sure. I dont need to tell you what its about. Check it out BELOW and see for yourself. But I promise you this: you wont laugh. Check it out on July 11th.

Extra Tidbit: This used to be called STARSHIP DAVE, a far better title.

RACISM

WOW! Why do we need to infuse racism into this discussion? There is no need for that here or any other place, internet or real life. I think that we can all agree that this movie SUCKS, not because Eddie Murphy is black, but because it just Sucks as a movie. Murphy used to be great, now he's just collecting a paycheck and putting out LAME flicks.
Let's stop all the racist stuff! That's nonsense!

I was only going to say that I got a chuckle from the Bee Gees line in the trailer, but after reading those comments... *single tear*

I'm all for black comedy, Fargo is one of my favourite films ever.

I'm sure I speak for anyone who has even heard of the Internet when I say you need to stop posting until you learn how to TYP/TALK PROPERRRLY. It would make your arguments somewhat valid and people would probably take you seriously then.

Just a thought...

Uh, Ok.

Wow! Calling racism because people don't like the latest Eddie Murphy crapfest... that's a new one. Get the guy back in with Bruckheimer so he can make a nice apology for the drivel that was "BH Cop III" and I'll be back on the Murphy train, but after "Haunted Mansion," "Daddy Day Care" (and it's sequel), "Dr. Doolittle" and "Norbit" (which I refused to see) I'm afraid we've lost a huge talent. I'll give you "Dreamgirls" - he deserved a nomination for that, but jesus!

P.S. Bloodzerox... I'd

P.S. Bloodzerox... I'd MAKE FUNA DA WAY YOU "TYP/TALK," BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW 2 READ DAT SHIT, YO! IS DAT RACIST? (P.S. Does it count if I am a black man?)

Nothing to add to the genre...

...that Innerspace hadn't already contributed. Seminal on so many levels - when are we going to get an Innerspace sequel? Now that Quaid's twins aren't being poisoned, he's probably ready for his next project. Innerspace: Requiem

Come on...worse then Pluto Nash?

This doesn't look completely awful...

It doesn't look great by any means but it sure as hell doesn't look like Pluto Nash bad. Come on...it has a interesting gimmick and Elizabeth Banks is in it. I agree though, Starship Dave is by far a better title then Meet Dave.

I am a fan of Nobit but I have my limits. This is probably the worst one yet. It will make Pluto Nash look like Titanic.

*sighs*

I hope that one day Eddie Murphy rises out of the ashes of the fatsuits.

Even though it would be easy to give up on him, I can't...but that doesn't mean I'm going to watch this.

Wow...

This does indeed look pitiful - How does Murphy retain his big-star status when all he makes is this kind of rubbish? It's a disgrace that comedians like him and Adam Sandler could get any comedy script out there greenlighted, but they keep choosing trash like this (and Sandler's [link] looking Zohan flick) to make.
