The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002)
This movie was so savagely criticized that I desperately wanted to like
it, to prove everybody wrong and to claim that Eddie Murphy was back
with a bang and with his funny bones throbbing like they never had. I
wanted all that badly...until I got to see the movie and got sourly
disappointed at such flagrant waste of resources.
Not that E.Murphy's name is a guarantee of quality cinema anymore but
at least he used to have some dignity, usually top notch character
actor Joe Pantoliano(just watch"Memento") also sets something close to
a career low here. The visual side of the film is occasionally
spectacular but nothing can overcome the increasingly frequent
hollywoodian syndrome of having scripts and dialogs that look as if
they were written by drunken apes, I mean zero intelligence, zero
subtlety, zero coherence all amounting to one gigantic mess of half
baked concepts that never gel into anything resembling a decent film.
To top it off for an action comedy the action part is feeble at best
and the least said about the jokes the better(oh the endless horny
robot jokes). It flopped for a reason, nobody in a right frame of mind
would want to repeat his dose of Pluto Nash.
