I might even go out on a limb and actually say that Meet Dave is, um, good.

I'm sure a more refined filmmaker could've squeezed the premise tighter for sophisticated laughs, but as family-angled sci-fi comedies go, Dave is actually quite agreeable. Who knew Murphy still had some fun left in him?

A comedian known for his brash wit and go-for-broke charm, Murphy used to be willing to say anything to get a laugh. Now, he's clearly willing to do anything.

...one could certainly do much worse as far as Murphy's family-friendly output goes.

If you think Eddie Murphy lost his mojo about 20 years ago and has been lacking clear comedic judgment ever since, then you've got to see this for confirmation. Or maybe not.

The new film is mildly amusing family entertainment, but when discussing the career of one of our most seasoned comic actors, "mildly amusing" can only be regarded as a letdown.

The puzzler that is Eddie Murphy's career continues apace with this low-fi kiddy-oriented affair featuring the comedian as both a human-shaped spaceship called Dave Ming-chang and the commander of said vessel.

There's a delicious irony to the way in which this supposedly heartwarming comedy gives the impression of having itself been devised by a race of extra-terrestrials with only a tentative grasp of what constitutes heart or humour.

This is made-for-TV material dressed up by Eddie Murphy's participation into a theatrical release.

A movie starring Eddie Murphy used to mean something good. Now it just means that you should avoid anything he does at all costs. MEET DAVE is a disaster of epic proportions.

Heralding a return to form for Eddie Murphy, this cleverly conceived and executed sci-fi comedy offers plenty of laughs for all ages. The considerable challenge for the filmmakers was to streamline three realities and make each one credible.
July 19, 2008
Unless you're a die-hard Eddie Murphy fan, there's no reason for you to 'Meet Dave,' a substandard comedy that should have gone straight to DVD.

Likeable sci-fi comedy with some nice ideas and two surprisingly charming performances from Eddie Murphy, though it's not as funny as it could have been.

Better than average but not worth phoning home about.

Doug Cooper - There's the odd chuckle to be had, it's fast-paced and colourful ... but overall it's over-stuffed and chaotic.

Murphy far outshines the material.
