This was a great "feel good" movie. I enjoyed it as Eddie Murphy showed his versatility in this movie. I felt real good leaving the theater and I highly recommend it.

Could have been more "Family Friendly", good message.

Good to see Eddie Murphy maturing in his choices of projects. He seems to be seeking out some deeper meaning and messages in his work. You can't help but love the guy! He uses his trademark facial expressions to the max in this movie. Ruby Dee put in a touching performance as his ailing mother with memory loss. His son was adorable, wife Kerry Washington very beautiful. The script could have been more "Family Friendly". His scene at the hotel with his wife trying to seduce him was uncomfortable since I did have my kids with me. Some of the lines from his assistant were likewise over the top, rude and profane. Without those parts in the movie, it would have been a great one to take the kids to. We liked the underlying message. They poked fun at his character, new age religion and spiritual journeying. It appeals more to adults than families. A step in the right direction for Eddie, looking forward to his next project.

If you like Eddie movies, ignore what the critics say and go see the movie. Its decently done and moves along well enough. I wouldn't call a blockbuster but an enjoyable time.

I ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH. IT HAS A MESSAGE BEHIND IT. THAT WAS A NICE SURPRISE. MY FIRST THOUGHT WHEN I SAW THE PREVIEW ON TV WAS THAT IT WAS JUST GOING TO BE FUNNY. THE ACTING WAS GREAT ALSO.
