You know Pink Floyd, right? You ask someone what their favorite Floyd album is, and odds are you'll get an answer like Dark Side or The Wall or Wish You Were Here. But every once in a while, you'll run into some wacko who will answer with something like Atom Heart Mother or Ummagumma.
This movie is my Ummagumma.
In a sea of great Eddie Murphy movies, this is my favorite. It's not "the best", but it's my favorite. Part of that is probably because this is the first Eddie Murphy movie I remember seeing. There's enough fantasy here to appeal to a kid, whereas Trading Places or Beverly Hills Cop don't have flying demons or Randall "Tex" Cobb.
