Comedy, SciFi/Fantasy
Eddie Murphy indulges his penchant for dual roles in this sci-fi comedy, playing both the captain of a crew of tiny aliens and the humanoid spaceship they pilot to earth. Aimed squarely at the family audience, this is squeaky clean -- even the toilet humor is sanitized -- but so enervated it feels like a bad case of jet lag. The insipid gags fail to exploit Murphy's gift for physical humor, Elizabeth Banks and Gabrielle Union are merely decorative, and Ed Helms (The Office), playing a character called #2, looks appropriately constipated. The key image is a close-up of Murphy's gleaming choppers, but aside from that the movie is toothless. Brian Robbins (The Shaggy Dog, Norbit) directed (90 min.).
