mpho3's rating of the film Eddie Murphy: Delirious

Vulgarity can be witty and funny or it can simply be vulgar. 22-year-old Murphy was a rising star and charming enough to have the audience loving every minute though for every funny impersonation there are a dozen jokes that fall flat. It's even harder to watch now that much of the humor is based on now antiquated views. The gay and AIDS jokes and the notion that racism has to be sought out are painful.
