          Maybe he should have stopped before Meet Dave, Norbit, etc. - Dave looks so stupid and I couldn't bring myself to even rent Norbit!

            I want to say "Boomerang" but even that one kind of sucked.

                Didn't Eddie Murphy retire from making movies several years ago? Maybe it's because I only go see movies that don't suck, but I haven't seen Eddie Murphy in a movie for a long long time.

                    So who will replace Eddie Murphy in Shrek Goes Fourth? At least Disney didn't want Eddie Murphy to return in The Haunted Mansion 2. One of his last best films was Doctor Dolittle back in 1998.

                      I don't think Shrek counts since it's just his voice. Voiceover work for movies such as Shrek generally last about 2 or 3 days, and when the top 3 stars in the Shrek movies (Myers, Murphy, Diaz) are getting paid $10-$20 million per movie, for such minimal work I don't think he's going to stop doing them.

                        It amazes me how this man can be in a critically acclaimed movie like Dream Girls and be nominated for an Academy Award, and then go right back to doing things like Norbit and Meet Dave.

                          Murphy is just another once edgy comic who went mainstream in movies and jumped the shark when he started making more accessible "family-friendly" films (see: Robin Williams, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin). I don't think Murphy will give up movies forever--there's just too much money to be made--but bravo for wanting to go back to what made him famous in the first place.

                            I imagine he will change his tune when the child support bills come in. Too bad the most famous thing he's been in recently was Scary Spice.
