The 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.
It is totally worth five minutes of your time to go check out the video for the Black Crowes' "High Head Blues."
The Crowes are tiny aliens who invade earth by popping out people's eyeballs and installing control systems in their heads, which they then ride around in. Chris Robinson is the first victim. I think maybe five people ever saw this when it came out, but it's truly awesome.
