This is one of those movies that will be very good or very bad...nothing in between.

But this looks awesome! I am always hoping for a true Eddie Murphy comedy comeback.
I saw some similarities to Bowfinger as well with a few of Murphyís mannerisms but considering I think Bowfinger is one of Murphyís finer films, Iím all for those comparisons.

I miss classic Murphy and this looks like itís a return to form. Looks like a few ĎFí bombs are dropped too. Honestly, Murphy is funnier when he gets to toss out a few of those.

Oh but I do, and I have. But Iím still not sold on Murphy from this trailer.
Also, Iím getting more of a Man on the Moon vibe here than Ed Wood.
