    Opinions seem to differ a lot on this one, but everyone seems to be agreeing that Eddie Murphy is surprisingly good considering how long he’s been playing this game.

    I had thought this movie might be funny, given its cast. But I always seem to be suckered in by what looks like good casting. I’m glad to hear that Eddie Murphy was good, because when I saw him in “Dreamgirls” I was quite impressed, and thought “he wuz robbed” of the Oscar. Also, I had thought that these silly people had a better motive (the great Alan Alda) than the group in “Ocean’s Eleven,” so I thought it would be more enjoyable. Oh well!
