One of the worst directed movies I've ever watched
22 June 2005 | by herbertataraSee all my reviews

Jim Belushi tries to play against type. Whoopi tries to show a menacing side to one of her whacked-out characters. There are some tremendous supporting bits by Beah Richards, Harry Caesar, and Karen Black. All efforts are totally wasted, save two or three touching moments. The pacing of this movie is horrific, the camera work is annoying and intrusive, the verbal exchanges are practically inaudible during the movie's first half, and the sound track is wholly inappropriate. The responsibility for all of this lies on the director -- who makes or breaks a movie. Homer and Eddie, unfortunately, is broken beyond repair. For enjoyable and entertaining Whoopi, leave Homer at home, and just watch "Eddie."
