It feels like it's been a long time since we last saw Eddie Murphy on the big screen doesn't it? I'm sure he's comfortable financially, and isn't exactly pressed to make new money by taking on almost every project that's offered to him, the way that it seems Samuel L. Jackson seems to (they don't call him the hardest working man in showboz for nothing - one of them anyway). So when Murphy does attach himself to a project, it immediately gets my attention. The last time we saw him on the big screen was in "Tower Heist" in 2011, 3 years ago.

But some of the alternatives are pretty rough, too. Can you »

Comedian-turned-actor Kevin Hart has expressed his desire to have a career like Eddie Murphy’s, but anyone who has sat through recent Murphy big-screen vehicles like “A Thousand Words,” “Norbit,” “Meet Dave” or “Imagine That” might put Hart’s aspirations in the be-careful-what-you-wish-for column. And while the mismatched-buddy-cop formula of “48 Hrs.” gave Murphy’s career an effective kickstart back in the 1980s, Hart’s similarly themed “Ride Along” feels like the copy of the copy of the copy of Murphy’s influential hit. Instead of Murphy’s wiseacre convict, we get Hart as Ben, a motor-mouthed video game fanatic who »
