I think it's official now.  If you make a film that absolutely NO ONE likes, you've hit rock bottom.

Hopefully he'll fire his management team...which apparently consists of a sock puppet that he speaks through for advice.

the interesting thing is that the audience ratings for it on RT is 62%  thats a helluva disparity from the critics and their 0%.

Eddie himself posted a great rating in the audience reviews section...but then posted a lousy rating a little later that day after he actually saw the film.

This is the critics new punching bag. I don't know if it deserves it or not, but it seems like they all are competing to say the meanest things.

Good for them.

I think it's been building.  His last half dozen films or more have been truly atrocious by all accounts.  He's become a less talented Tyler Perry...if that's possible.

Eddie Murphy doesn't give a damn.  He's like Harrison Ford in that he'll make turd after turd knowing that producers will still consider him bankable based on movies he made long ago.

Sadly, this is true.  Hollywood is one of the few workplaces on earth where the rule of "you're only as good as your latest success" doesn't apply.

I doubt Eddie has any regrets on that account.

I have to agree with Rshetts2.  I doubt lack of integrity is something keeping him awake at night or preventing him from diving Scrooge McDuck like into piles of cash.
