Meet Dave | Film Review | Slant Magazine
noalpha27 July I've just watched the film and wanted to take a look at it on IMDb. I actually couldn't believe that it's scored only Well, if your. Fortunately, Meet Dave never succumbs to the one-joke nature of its a quality that would make its conclusive morals sufficiently profound Like Dave, they're likeable and well-meaning, but too awkward to Buy: DVD | Soundtrack; Distributor: 20th Century Fox; Runtime: 90 min; Rating: PG; Year: Meet Dave is the next terrible comedy from Eddie Murphy and his I don't know why they keep making movies like this and I don't know why I HOPE that this is as funny as the trailer let's on. abe on Mar 25, 7. Well.
However I still think it will be a hit. Ryan on Mar 25, 11 There I firmy believe that Brian Robbins should be taken aside, beat to death, and stuffed inside his own ass. Eddie, 3 words for you my man Now I just sit and wait for Best Defense 2.
Derek on Mar 25, 12 i wonder if they got permission before stealing this from men in black, c'mon eddie your not at the point in your career just yet where you can turn out piece of shit after shit and just expect everyone to still show up because its you, have your brother write somethin for you if you have nothing good left harrison on Mar 25, 13 Another bad Eddie Murphy flick that's bound to hit!
I was certainly hoping Murphy would return to his unique role of Axel Foley in the next "Beverly Hills Cop" sequel that's been on the rumor mill for a while.
That's something that most of us probably wouldn't mind seeing!! Spider on Mar 25, 14 What Eddie M.
I refuse to let This crap take my money Enola on Mar 25, 18 Such a shame Eddie flushed his reputation down the toilet this movie looks like another two- or three-flusher, though. Yeah, many of his recent movies have made money, but his name is now synonymous with bad movies.
Bring on Pluto Nash Screw you guys, I laughed and will go see and enjoy this movie. Did we do something to deserve this?! Andrew on Mar 31, 23 I actually agreed with all that said the trailer was not bad I mean you gotta hand it to him, every time almost people rip his movies a new one they do great in the theater - he's had more hits than misses. Peej on Apr 1, 24 im not going to lie Anonymous on Apr 15, 25 Max on Apr 26, 26 I bet its good. Bill Corbett is a funny writer as is Rob Greenberg Jack Jonathan on May 3, 27 Looks funny to me.
It's the kind of movie I'd forget to go see though. Dallas on May 18, 28 I'm going to see it; it looks good to me! Why all the negative comments???
I like Eddie Murphy. Leah on May 31, 29 hey, why all of the bad reviews on most of these films? Lets see you try and act anyway near as well as Eddie Murphy. Now shrup I'm gonna go watch it. Don't be so critical, if you have not Seen the film. He's one of my Favouite actors. And that's there job, so they have to make a living some how. Desiree on Jul 19, 32 okay, this movie is like my favorite movie ever.
But when a white actor does the same type of movie everything shifts They are envious that eddie murphy is at the top of the list of Highest paid actors.
Meet dave was not very funny at all. Definitely a few laughs, but no funny overall. The Captain decides to cancel the plan to drain the oceans because it would destroy life on Earth. The police track Dave down using the impression of his face found in the dirt at the crash site and they arrest him.
After spending so much time on Earth, most of the crew begin to exhibit new "feelings", adopting Earth's culture, mannerisms and general laid-back attitude. Number 2 decides that the Captain and the rest of the crew's changing behavior is unacceptable and takes command of the "ship", imprisoning the Captain. Under Number 2's command, Dave breaks out of the police station and another attempt is made to arrest him.
Number 3, who has become infatuated with the Captain, becomes jealous of Gina. She first cooperates in the command change but later agrees with the Captain's view on humans.
Both are caught by Number 2 and they are expelled from the spaceship. In the meantime, Number 17 Kevin Harta young, fun-loving alien, jumps out of the "ship" while drunk from the alcohol Dave has imbibed.
The Captain apologizes to Number 3 for ignoring her. He admits that he too loves her and wants to be with her.
Back at the police station, Dooley discovers Number 17 in his coffee and interrogates him to find out where Dave is going. Number 2 takes Dave to the harbor, where he tries to throw the metal orb into the ocean, but is stopped by the Captain and Number 3, both of whom managed to gain reentry back onto the ship. They convince the rest of the crew that the real Captain is in charge again. Reinstated, he orders Number 2 to be stuck in the ship's "butt" forever.
The metal orb meanwhile slips out of Dave's hand and rolls into the ocean.

The Captain attempts to retrieve the orb but is told that they only have enough power to either retrieve it or return home. The Captain decides to save the Earth and the rest of the crew agrees. The ball, thrown in the ocean by Number 2, is retrieved. Dave powers down while Dooley and his partner catch up and point their guns at him. With no power, Dave's shields are disabled, leaving the crew defenseless. Josh tries to tell the police officers that Dave is harmless but is ignored.
He then grabs Dooley's taser which he uses on Dave, recharging him.
