I guess Pluto Nash made so little that most studio execs are unaware of it's existence lol

I remember when Eddie Murphy was in decent films... now, unless he's doing voice acting, it's usually crap.

It seems ever since Eddie was caught with that trannie prostitute, he can't get a decent role. Too bad, too, because he used to actually be funny...

I like some of Segal's films and the basic storyline sounds ok, but shit I really don't want another Murphy in space movie.

If Murphy wants to make another ass of himself, why not just do another Shrek?

The best thing that'll happen to Eddie Murphy's career is if Tarantino actually casts him as one of The Inglorious Bastards. But then again, judging by the crap that Murphy's been in, it could end up being the worst thing that could happen to Tarantino's career!

The concept of him making another sci-fi "comedy" alone, in itself, is hilarious. I propose they should make a documentary about him making this movie and I can guarantee you the documentary will outsold the movie.
