The Adventures of Pluto Nash Reviews

Page 1 of 5
August 16, 2007
Some diverting cameos, but Murphy struggles to keep this one grounded.
July 15, 2014
It's a weak effort that amounts to a universal waste of talent and time.
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

Is it as bad as all that? Oh yes.
August 18, 2002
Aspires to the cracked lunacy of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, but thanks to an astonishingly witless script ends up more like The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.

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.

August 16, 2002
It's not funny, it's not romantic, it's not exciting, it's not for children, it's not remotely interesting.
| Original Score: 1/4
August 24, 2002
The screenplay from Neil Cuthbert feels lackadaisical in his hands and loses its playfulness early on.
May 23, 2013
Pluto Nash will set lunar exploration back decades.
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.

August 25, 2002
A dreadfully unfunny hybrid of recycled science fiction and Eddie Murphy mugging.
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 28, 2002
A sparkling but cold and lifeless chunk of rock which is best left forgotten.

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.
October 2, 2002
As much of a good idea as Pluto Nash might have been, it's execution is far less engaging.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
August 17, 2002
Eddie Murphy tries to be the suave hero type again, and because of a very weak storyline, he doesn't really succeed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 8, 2015
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.

Pluto Nash is barely in space.

March 6, 2007
It's boring. It's flat. It's ugly. Worst of all for a comedy, it's not even remotely funny.
August 18, 2002
The Adventures of Pluto Nash is an inane, tacky and stultifying experience for anyone to endure. Gee, talking about a meteoric miscalculation! What did you ever do to deserve this idiotic rocket-sized ruse?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 26, 2003
The movie is set in 2087, or approximately 100 years after scribe Neil Cuthbert last bothered to touch up his script.
