      The movie “Meet Dave” represents an attempt from the actor, Eddie Murphy in showing that he can do something different and, at the same time, be successful. Although Murphy tried to link the comic world with the fantasy world in one movie, unfortunately he failed miserably to win over the public, liked he used to do with movies such as “The Distinguished Gentleman”, “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Coming to America”.

      So what went wrong with this movie? The positive aspect of


      “Meet Dave” is that Eddie Murphy has still great acting skills.

      In this movie, we watch him interpret two roles at the same time Dave Ming Cheng and The Captain and one can see that he really tries very hard to give them a different kind of personality from each other.

      What is so sad is the fact that sometimes he comes across as a bit over exaggerated in his interpretation.

      I won’t be surprised the he ...


      • will be nominated for a Razzie Award for his involvement in this movie.

        Another negative aspect of “Meet Dave” is that it has a very weak script with very, very few funny moments.

        The general public is used to a much funnier Eddie Murphy and this role on screen can come across as a cold fish when compared to his other famous roles.

        In other words, the story lacks a lot in human warmth!

        The story of the movie is about

        a spaceship operated by aliens in the form of a human body of Dave Ming Cheng (Murphy).

        Cheng interacts in the human world while trying to save his planet, Nil from energy crises.

        During his time living on the human planet, he becomes friend with a young boy named Josh Morrison (Austyn Myers).

        “Meet Dave” represents the movie that Eddie Murphy will surely regret doing.

        Watch it only if you are an Eddie Murphy fan and you have got way to much time to waste!
