When was the last time you actually saw a good Eddie Murphy movie?
It probably wasn't "A Thousand Words," which got a 0 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. It probably also wasn't "Tower Heist," which didn't seem to impress anyone despite an intriguing premise. Going down the list of his recent movies -- "Imagine That," "Meet Dave," "Norbit" -- it's not really until 2006's "Dreamgirls" or 2004's "Shrek 2" that we can think of an Eddie Murphy performance that was actually worth watching.
Considering his track record in Hollywood -- "Beverly Hills Cop," "Trading Places," "Coming To America" -- it's easy to remember why Murphy once earned the big bucks. However, he's still earning the big bucks, with little to no returns. Forbes has labeled Murphy as the most overpaid actor in Hollywood, only making back $2.30 for ever $1 he's paid. Long explanation short: That's not a lot of money.
