Not very good
20 February 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of Eddie Murphy's work on both "SNL" and in movies (up until the late '80s, anyway). I expected a lot from this "best of" collection but it's simply not very good. There are a few good gags - the "white man disguise," James Brown's hottub, The Little Rascals bit - but overall it has more misses than hits. I'm not sure why they thought putting the Gumby skit in here was a good idea.

I guess the biggest problem is that they were looking for "Eddie Murphy skits" whereas some of his better ones were those in which he interacted with others and shared the screen. Most of the ones included here are focused just on him, and to be honest a vast majority of them simply aren't very good.

Instead, I recommend "The Best of Will Ferrell," which is to date the best "best of" I've seen.

"Best of Eddie Murphy" needs a bit of work done.
