Goofs

When Evan is in his house the first night that he has Olivia, she comes out of her bedroom and goes to sleep on the lounge chair in the same room Evan is working. When Olivia first gets on the lounge her slippers are near the foot of the lounge. A couple of clips later you will see them near the head of the bed. 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.

Enjoyable and quite funny
1 March 2010 | by zoil16See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised with this funny flick. I was in the mood for a fun family film, and this delivered. If you don't expect an academy award winner, then you should find this movie very entertaining. Eddie Murphy really puts in a highly energized performance and so does Hayden Church. Watching these two duke it out in their financial meetings is pure comic gold. Best part has to be when Murphy goes through his stock pick notes that have been doodled on my his daughter - "this stock is gonna drop its pants because they have a poopy diaper...........". This movie makes me want to go find an imaginary person and become friends with them.

Awesome.
