    Have you ever made a really big mistake? I know I just did after watching the movie. The trailer might be funny, because it is. Those are the only funny parts in the movie, except for some scenes. Sure, I chuckled here and there but this wasn’t that funny of a movie.

    Come on. Here is Eddie Murphy and Thandie Newton, two really great actor and actress. What are they doing here?! It was a waste of talent. This movie plays like a movie for kids. It’s gross, disheartening, mean spirited, offensive, and just plain unfunny.

    There are some good things though. The make up effects were terrific, although that doesn’t make up how bad the movie is. Also, the cinematography was great, rare for a comedy movie. There are two types of movies in this: The first one is the clichéd romantic comedy, which I wish I could’ve seen more of and the other is the unfunny scenes with Rasputia.

    I would rather like to see a clichéd romantic comedy than any scenes with Rasputia in it. There are some scenes in the movie that has that, which I really like and wish could’ve had more of. This also could’ve been a great movie if it weren’t have the Rasputia character in it. Oh well. I guess the studio made a big mistake.
