I enjoyed it. It was a half hour too long...but I thought it was funny, charming, and it reminded me how much I like Eddie Murphy.

A star vehicle and, with a return to form, Eddie Murphy has the juice to carry it.

Sometimes the scenes so wrench continuity that it seems a wrong reel has been slipped in.

An attempt at a more sophisticated, grown-up comedy for Murphy, focusing on adults in a workplace, and on adult, sexual relationships.
