    Do I love this movie or do I just love everything* in this movie?

    It would be easy to credit Murphy for making this idiotic caper work (because he’s amazing), but director Martin Brest is real MVP here, making sure every scene, every character, every relationship is specific and real and funny. This is directing. 

    I’ve also long wondered if it would be possible to pull off a human character who behaves with the same fearless comic bravado as Bugs Bunny. Turns out it is possible because Eddie Murphy did it.
