Eddie Murphy Is The World's Lamest SpaceshipCharlie Jane Anders3/25/08 9:30amFiled to: Meet DaveEddie MurphynorbitStarship DaveCheeseplease god no38EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe basic plot idea of Eddie Murphy's next scifi movie is utterly brilliant, and has the potential to create an instant classic. But the execution, from Norbit director Brian Robbins, looks to be utterly awful. In Meet Dave (formerly known as Starship Dave), Murphy plays a starship shaped like a human, with a tiny crew inside... led by a miniature Eddie Murphy. The teeny aliens have to control their man-sized craft and learn how to interact with the natives of Earth, including such crucial activities as dancing, shaking hands and fairground games. Hilarity totally fails to ensue, sadly.
