Meet Dave pays lip service to the joys of exploring new worlds, but it never steps off the tour bus.

Meet Dave is passable family fare, occasionally even inspired, but in the end it remains earthbound.

Murphy, both as Dave and the shipâ(TM)s captain is in good form mugging for laughs and getting a few.

Murphy's best moments here only remind us of "Coming to America," another fish-out-of-water story. These days, Murphy seems like a fish out of water as an actor on screen.

It's a pity someone can't guide the course of Starship Murphy to a smarter, funnier universe than the one he's chosen to explore.

Better material and more adept direction might've made this a perfectly solid commercial enterprise.

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.
July 17, 2008
Better than average but not worth phoning home about.
July 14, 2008
Even in C-movie junk like this, Murphy manages to wring a few laughs out of the material. But the humor is so broad it barely fits onto the screen.
July 11, 2008
Meet Dave is a fish-out-of-water comedy with a rather annoying fish.

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.
July 12, 2008
The worst sci-fi comedy since, well, since Eddie Murphy made The Adventures of Pluto Nash.

Let's be honest: The shocker here would have been if it were any good.

I doubt many kids will follow the bit about using an orb to desalinate the earth's water, but that's just the MacGuffin of a film whose nature is to whiff across the top of a kid's head and then evaporate, which it does, leaving almost no residue.

Even for a high-concept, lowbrow summer release Meet Dave is drab, shoddy work.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/6
July 21, 2008
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.
