Do you enjoy Eddie Murphy?

Simple answer.

Old, new still find him funny?

I just finished watching I-Spy for the second time and i must say i still laughed pretty hard during some parts of the movie.
Daddy Day care has some pretty funny parts. Never saw Pluto Nash...

No. Beverly Hills Cop was pretty sweet...but everything else after SNL was horrible.

He did some good movies,etc.

But now with these kids movies,ugh.....

He used to make some good movies.

Now he makes crap. No, he makes crappy crap. He takes crap and puts it to shame.

So I'm not voting. There should be some middle ground between "OMG I LOVE HIM" and "What a loser."

Nevermind, I'll vote.

I've avoided most of his movies in the past 10 years, because I've outgrown him. And when I WAS forced to watch his remakes of "Dr. Doolittle" and "The Nutty Professor", I was nearly physically ill. Not that the original "Professor" was anything great, but this was AWFUL!
He once had the world at his feet. What happened?

He's still pretty funny for the most part. Not as good as he used to be though.

He's lost the edginess he used to have on SNL and in movies like Trading Places, he only does mainstream crap now.

He can still be funny, but he needs to pick better movies to be in.

He's a dillhole. Screw Eddie Murphy.

Although some of his standup in the mid 80's was outstanding.

He's not on any of my top 10 lists but I like him, I laugh at his stupid jokes. I think he is a better comedian than actor. He seems to just play Eddy Murphy, i.e. with a different moniker to the same character in all his movies. Not much of a range but he has excellent timing and delivery and that is hard to do. His vocals are excellent, just the voice and his line delivery playing the ass in Shrek were very good IMO. Listen to the same character in Spanish, or French or German on the DVD is not the same. The German is close, but no cigar.

Not impressed from his work post-SNL.

Used to really love his comedy, but I, too, like Jiggs outgrew him. I prefer comedy now that doesn't have all the cussing. Got kind of boring.

Murphy sucks........he's very one dimensional comedian...........always having to resort to either using profanity or the race card.
