DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Action Sci-Fi - This is not actually a comedy! There is a minimal amount of humor, especially for an Eddie Murphy movie. He doesn't really attempt to be very funny. It's just not in the story. It's mainly an action adventure that's a little weak on the action and the adventure, but not too bad. It should appeal to most Eddie Murphy fans, but you will almost certainly be a bit disappointed in the lack of Eddie's unique style of humor.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Eddie Murphy certainly didn't bring in the crowd this time. An almost total lack of advertising didn't help. Apparently the studio didn't have any faith in this movie. From six showings we were only able to collect 69 opinions. If this had not been an Eddie Murphy film I feel it would have received higher opinions, but people just expect more from Eddie.

These opinions clearly show that your probability of enjoying this movie is about 50/50, which isn't very good. Still, even at 50/50 many of you will enjoy it. However, I would strongly suggest that you catch a matinee to reduce your potential for disappointment. My wife and I thought it was a decent movie, but I certainly wouldn't have wanted to pay full price to see it.

If you're curious about this movie but don't catch it at theaters it would definitely be worth a rental.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
I saw the first showing and this is a decent movie. Not great ,but fun and entertaining. Unfortunately it's not very funny and doesn't really try to be all that funny. It's certainly not up to the level of most Eddie Murphy movies, but I don't feel it was bad enough to not screen for critics. My guess is they didn't have time to screen it.

We collected nine opinions and five rated it pretty high and four rated it kind of low, but no one disliked it. It's maybe not worth a full price ticket, but it's a great movie to catch at a matinee as a mindless summer diversion. To bad it has so much profanity. It would have made a decent family movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Set on the moon in the year 2087, Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy), an audacious, successful owner of the hottest nightclub in town. Pluto finds himself in trouble when he refuses to sell his club to Mogan (Joe Pantoliano), the lunar gangster that is helping the mysterious Rex Crater mastermind a plan to take over the entire moon.

Joining Nash in the danger and lunacy are Dina Lake (Rosario Dawson), a beautiful earthling who has traveled to the moon to further her singing ambitions, and Pluto's bodyguard Bruno (Randy Quaid) – a robot quickly approaching obsolescence. Rounding out the cast are Rowland (Peter Boyle), a pool shark and Pluto's confidant; Flura (Pam Grier), Pluto's mother; and Tony Francis (Jay Mohr), Pluto's friend and an Italian singing sensation.
