I Spy: Man oh man, this movie is lame. You would think having Eddie and Owen Wilson team up in this remake of the Cosby remake would be a good idea. But, the clearly comes across as by the numbers for Eddie. There are a few good moments here and there, namely, the camera in the eye scene.
Daddy Day Care: This isn’t my cup of tea, but it isn’t a terrible movie. Leave that for the sequel without Eddie Murphy. I don’t like that Eddie is leaning on family friendly movies at this point. It is a far path to take from the darker action comedies he made in the 80s. Now, he’s playing around with children. Well, the movie made a lot of money.
The Haunted Mansion: I never bothered seeing this movie. I only know that it made a lot of money and it was again a kid friendly movie. I know they are rebooting this movie again coming up.
Shrek just farted...on you.
Shrek 2: This sequel is actually better than the first one. The writers and actors seem to be giving it the best in this one. Eddie is still funny as Donkey, and now dating the dragon from the first movie. That’s very strange. Too bad, the Shrek series goes off the rails with the third movie. There are some shining moments in Eddie’s career.
Eddie wants his girl to part all the time!
Dreamgirls: I love this movie and Eddie is brilliant as James 'Thunder' Early. His character is clearly a tribute to James Brown. However, Early actually mentions James Brown in the movie, which I find very amusing. Plus, Eddie does a good job with the music, and shows that he can actually sing. The music is good and the acting is great. It really shows how the Motown era worked during those days.
