The Adventures of Pluto Nash Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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?

Some diverting cameos, but Murphy struggles to keep this one grounded.
March 6, 2007
Another zillion-dollar dud.
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 28, 2002
How on earth, or anywhere else, did director Ron Underwood manage to blow $100 million on this?

It might be the first sci-fi comedy that could benefit from a Three's Company-style laugh track.

August 22, 2002
Dismally dull sci-fi comedy.
August 19, 2002
This ill-conceived and expensive project winds up looking like a bunch of talented thesps slumming it.
August 19, 2002
A listless sci-fi comedy in which Eddie Murphy deploys two guises and elaborate futuristic sets to no particularly memorable effect.

Even Murphy's expert comic timing and famed charisma can't rescue this effort.
August 19, 2002
An air of desperation hovers over each episode of the incoherent story line.

August 19, 2002
A film made with as little wit, interest, and professionalism as artistically possible for a slummy Hollywood caper flick.
August 18, 2002
A limp Eddie Murphy vehicle that even he seems embarrassed to be part of.

August 17, 2002
So unremittingly awful that labeling it a dog probably constitutes cruelty to canines.

August 17, 2002
Sadly, though many of the actors throw off a spark or two when they first appear, they can't generate enough heat in this cold vacuum of a comedy to start a reaction.
August 16, 2002
There is nothing redeeming about this movie.
