Eddie Murphy in Eddie Murphy in Meet Dave


Meet Dave
A group of aliens land on Earth, using a spaceship made to look like a person. The miniature captain inside looks like the spaceship too. After meeting a woman by accident, the aliens try to come to terms with the confusion that is human life on Earth while trying to find a device that will save the planet. Along the way, the crew start to loosen up a little and become, well, a little more human too. The critics were not impressed.

90 minutes.

Adam Nayman quote iconMeet Dave is not as noxious as Norbit.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconMurphy, 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.

ScreenIt
quote iconKids 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 quote iconEasy gags and slack direction drag this occasionally clever alien-out-of-planet comedy down to unimaginative lows.
