7-29-18 - Streaming - It's actually pretty entertaining in a "stop and gawk at the car wreck" kind of way. Doesn't quite know whether to be a slapstick comedy or adventurous sci-fi action. It ends up coming short on all aspects. But as a Hollywood oddity, it's got to be one of the most bizarre that's been made. I'd much rather watch a colossal misstep than a middle of the road genre picture.
What do you do when the comedy doesn't work and everything from acting to production is terrible? Put it in a science fiction setting so that at least there is some nice decor and color to look at and make sure it is the most expensive science fiction comedy flop ever made. Bottom-at-the-barrel stuff and among Eddie Murphy's worst moments which says a lot. Annoying Randy Quaid make the movie even more unbearable.
