Adam Nayman Meet Dave is not as noxious as Norbit.
Peter Travers Murphy, teaming again with his Norbit director Brian Robbins, is assuming we'll all line up for lazyass toilet jokes and pay for the privilege. Prove him wrong, people, please.
Kids might enjoy the film as it unfolds, but I doubt it will stick with them for long, let alone decades later should they ever comment about seminal films in their past.
Tomatometer Easy gags and slack direction drag this occasionally clever alien-out-of-planet comedy down to unimaginative lows.
