Trivia

Eddie Murphy was nominated for two Razzie awards, as he was nominated for Worst Actor and won Worst Actor of the Decade. This marks the first Nickelodeon film to be nominated for a Razzie award, an award ceremony dishonoring the worst in motion picture industry. The second was it's next film, The Last Airbender.

Goofs

In the big meeting with D'Enzo, he states (referring to Johnny Whitefeather) "And your great-grandfather was one-half Navaho. So what would that make you? One-thirty-second?" This is factually wrong. If his great-grandfather was half Navaho, then he would be 1/16th Navaho (his grandfather would be 1/4 and his father would be 1/8th). Martin Sheen either read the line wrong and it should have been "great great-grandfather", or it was simply written wrong. See more »

Quotes

Tod: Mr. E, I talked to the lawyer guy upstairs and he confirmed my hunch, uh, about the whole stabbing of Mr. Whitefeather thing. It's a definite no can do from a legal standpoint.

unlikeable unfunny
23 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Evan Danielson (Eddie Murphy) is a big financial executive recently separated from his wife Trish (Nicole Ari Parker). His daughter Olivia (Yara Shahidi) is having difficulties and lost in her imaginary world.

This started horribly with Thomas Haden Church playing a weird Native American cartoon Johnny Whitefeather. It's cringe worthy. Eddie Murphy does his jerky absent angry father figure. It's all very unlikeable. Bless her heart, the little girl looks like she's a regular kid. But this isn't really a kiddie film.

It's a redemption movie. When Olivia draws all over his notes, it provided hidden insights into some investments. The big problem is that none of it is funny. The idea has potential but there's a constant mean-spirited tone.
