You would think with such mega stars as Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy that this movie would be a laugh a minute. After sitting through this 96 minute video I would wonder if I could count the number of laughs on one hand. Eddie Murphy's two roles in this film are incredibly shallow. The nerdy brother of the film star is quite annoying and the film star just rants and runs. Steve Martin is constantly telling stupid lies throughout the movie which for the most part are unfunny. The movie promotions staff were smart to not waste money selling this movie in the theatre's. It is a fairly dissappointing and avoids my one star rating because1) it is basically lighthearted and 2) just by showing up Murphy and Martin can rouse a chuckle or two. Look elsewhere when renting comdies.
