WoW ! great film .I always wanted to see Eddie make the jump.
16 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I aLways new Mr. Eddie Murphy had more to give us. Much like Dan Akroyd

and Billy Crystal. I only hope Eddie is doing another film dramatic at this very moment. We the fans will now have the chance to start all over again discovering and enjoying the genius of one of the finest talents to ever entertain us . This film had nothing But heart from beginning to end . I know his brother Charlie Murphy who i'm also a big fan of is very happy with this film Also. I want to say the music,lighting,costumes,casting,camera work and the writing left nothing to be desired .We all hope to see more from this great actor and all around superb performer Mr. Eddie knock them dead Murphy .
