There was a time when finding a good movie to watch was as easy as looking for Eddie Murphy. He was as hot as vinyl seats on a sunny day. But as the years went by, Eddie seemed to lose his edge. He had a bomb or two, and suddenly, he was no longer Mr. Automatic (can you say Golden Child). But he's come back strong with some big hits, most notably as the voice, and attitude, of Donkey in the Shrek series. Also, the heck with the critics, Eddie was great in Norbit.

So what's the deal on Meet Dave. Dave Ming Chan, Eddie Murphy, makes quite a splash when he arrives in New York City. There's something about him that's not quite right. Dave, is not a man at all, but a ship made in the image of its miniature-sized captain. Inside Dave is a crew of well-trained miniature people - a world within a world - that feverishly attempts to direct Dave's every action and conversation. In each section of Dave's body, a skilled crewperson, about one and three-quarters inches tall, mans a high tech console controlling Dave's movements. When Dave attempts his first-ever sip of water, a tidal wave drenches the crew!

So, will Meet Dave be a hit or a miss? We'll know soon!
