Meet Dave. What obviously happened was that after the barbershop scene in Coming to America, the same adviser that told him to do Boomerang told Eddie "this is your schtick" so it was obviously thereafter contracted that in all future movies he must play all characters, one of them must be hyper, and there must be at least 3 fat suits. As a result, Meet Dave applies the holy grail of comedy, whereby fat suits + playing all characters + manic personalities = comedic GOLD. Eddie Murphy disguised as an obese woman? Hysterical! Eddie Murphy playing all the people in the same scene? I refuse to believe it!
While I understand that Eddie Murphy has 95 children to support and needs to be able to buy zoot suits to wear on the red carpet, I think it's fair to say he's gone insane and is doing every script that comes across his desk. Daddy Day Care. Dr. Doolittle 2. Norbit. I'm not sure what to say except are these a joke. As I mentioned before, I can no longer go on in a world where movies such as You Don't Mess with the Zohan exist, and while I would normally classify Meet Dave under the same category of unacceptability, at least Eddie Murphy has the decency to pretend to quit acting and stop ruining my life whereas Adam Sandler will continue to ruin it for the foreseeable future.
