Eddie Murphy At His Best!

  • Jul 5, 2001
Rating:
+5
This movie is loaded with funny line after amusing sight gag coupled with a pretty good story. Eddie Murphy's humor is relatively clean and his character portrayal of Billy Valentine really utilizes his full comedic repetoire. Is very interesting how the story develops and how in the end Dan Akroyd and Murphy team up to teach the Duke Brothers a lesson in treating people with respect. Jaimee Lee Curtis, Don Ameche, Ralph Belamy, and the actor who plays Beaks all are entertaining. Certainly worth a rental if not a purchase.
