Pluto Nash: Spaced-out junk Shallow plot and boring dialogue fail to impress
Directed by Ron Underwood, The Adventures of Pluto Nash bears some resemblance to the 1960's cartoon, The Jetsons. While Pluto Nash has an impressive cast, including Eddie Murphy, Randy Quaid, Jay Mohr, Pam Grier, and Alec Baldwin in a cameo appearance, it lacks good writing. In fact, a rerun of The Jetsons would be more entertaining.
The year is 2087, on the moon, in a full gravity town called Little Americ a. Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy) plays an ex-con turned nightclub owner. The local mob offers to buy Pluto's successful club (`Club Nash'), but after he refuses to sell, the mob blows up the joint, and the chase begins. Pluto and his beautiful waitress/singer Dina Lake (Rosario Dawson), and his Robot (Randy Quaid) are chased by the gangsters, while they try to find and confront Rex Crater, the head of the mob.
Pluto's attitude-filled but hilarious mother (Pam Grier) could have added some more humorous moments to the movie, but she only appeared in a few minor scenes.
Randy Quaid, (Bruno the bald-headed Robot), is not nearly as funny as his other witty characters of past movies (my all time favorite - Cousin Eddy- National Lampoon's Vacation movies). His performance was adequate, but repetitive lines and tired jokes got old very quickly.
The only scenes that made me snicker were the ones that featured the goofy, 1950-ish B-movie spacesuits. They reminded me of sci-fi parodies from Mystery Science Theater 3000, and Spaceballs.
The genre for this film says comedy/action/sci-fi. If this is so, then it's a comedy that has no funny jokes, action that has cheesy scenes, and a sci-fi with untasteful and unrealistic effects.
The uncreative and lame scenes seem to jump around with confusing transitions, giving the feeling that there was some serious cutting going on in the editing room.
Ron Underwood, (Tremors and City Slickers) didn't have much of a story to work with, however, there were some clever sight gags. For instance, Hilary Clinton's mug showing up on a $10,000 bill, Trump buildings, and a frozen dog that can be thawed in a microwave. Writer Neil Cuthbert, (Mystery Men and Hocus Pocus), could have taken his futuristic story line, and created the funniest movie of the summer; however, on film the story was `lost in space'. Having said that, it makes sense that Warner Brothers shelved this project for two years after filming.where it should have stayed.
There is no doubt that this would have been a hit in the 70's and 80's, but in 2002, its simply dated!
Expect to find Pluto Nash on the $1.99 clearance table at your local video store very soon.
Rated PG-13 for violence, sexual humor and language. Running Time is 95 minutes.
