Even the gang from Mystery Science Theater 3000 would have trouble finding much to riff off in this turkey, which is unremittingly dull more than anything else.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

It's one of those classically awful movies that you almost have to see to truly appreciate why it well deserves its status as one of the worst movies of all time.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/10
July 26, 2014
The result is something quite rare in professional show business: 1 1/2 hours of pure blankness. It's there but it's not there. It is but it isn't. It has nothing to offer. It's not forgettable, really, because there's nothing to forget.
July 26, 2014
Complete with a Xanadu-style dance routine, Pam Grier as Pluto's mother indulging in tired blaxploitation moves and rent-a-cameo John Cleese as a virtual reality chauffeur, this is a flop of epic proportions.

It's a weak effort that amounts to a universal waste of talent and time.

Is it as bad as all that? Oh yes.
May 23, 2013
Formulaic films are released every week, but it's rare that one has a $100 million budget, big stars whose roles are embarrassing to watch and unusual special effects that only serve to mask a predictable plot and cliche-ridden scenes.

Pluto Nash will set lunar exploration back decades.
May 23, 2013
Murphy sleepwalks through it, and who can blame him?
May 23, 2013
An action-comedy vehicle factory-made from worn clichés, wearing riffs and virtually vacuum-sealed away from both adventure and laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
May 23, 2013
With colossal sets, a remarkable cast, and hundreds of extras, this sci-fi comedy-adventure spoof of '30s movies should be funny and adventuresome, but it falls flat.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 23, 2013
Murphy and Underwood must have had a lot of explaining to do.
May 23, 2013
Despite being set in 2080, The Adventures Of Pluto Nash only makes you hanker for the days when Eddie Murphy really was take-no-prisoners funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 23, 2013
A paralyzingly dopey mess, Pluto sat on the shelf for more than a year while Warner Bros. tried to inject some life into it. You might as well try to revive a stuffed moose.

May 23, 2013
A waste of talent and money, Pluto Nash seems convinced that simply sticking Eddie Murphy in outer space with expensive special effects will produce laughs.

Forensics experts will be digging through the rubble of this fiasco for a long time, trying to reconstruct the accident. How did so many lines fall flat? Why were the action scenes so corny and unconvincing? Who put the stink on this?
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 18, 2008
It's a real turkey.
August 7, 2008
An abundance of noise, explosions, gunplay, chases, special effects, futuristic eye candy and star power (including John Cleese, Pam Grier and Peter Boyle) generates very little pure fun or excitement in this cluttered visit to the moon.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 16, 2007
Some diverting cameos, but Murphy struggles to keep this one grounded.
May 27, 2007
worst futurama rip-off ever
| Original Score: 1.5/4
