Meet Dave 2008

Another questionable Murphy sci-fi comedy (did he learn nothing from “Pluto Nash”?). There's something not quite right about Dave—probably because he's actually a space ship, staffed by 100 teeny aliens, that's been designed in the image of the ship's captain. The aliens have come to Earth in this disguise looking for help to save their own planet. All sorts of slapstick confusion follows as Dave interacts with the human population of the Big Apple. Not yet reviewed. ?m/C Eddie Murphy, Elizabeth Banks, Gabrielle Union, Ed Helms, Judah Friedlander, Shawn Christian, Scott Caan, Marc Blucas, Pat Kilbane, Michael O'Malley; D: Brian Robbins; W: Bill Corbett, Rob Greenberg; C: Clark Mathis; M: John Debney.
