Bowfinger sucks. I tried watching it three times and I kept falling asleep, why you ask yourself, becoz it's boring, too much of a good thing spells trouble and I feel that Mssr's Martin & Murphy are just trying to cash in on their names and not their talent. I didn't like Steve Martin's work much until he gave that knockout punch performance in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" playing alongside Michael Caine. Eddy Murphy was always a favourite until recently. "Life" should have got the death sentence before going into production, it's clearly not one of those box-office successes that brings a whole new life to the cinema or the glamour that was once Holliwood. Nothing pivital rests in the balance of this film's success, Thank God, the "End Of Days" could come and go as with a whisp of air gently caressing your brow in the middle of a hurricane. Eddy's rendition of "The Nutty Pro." and his Co-Co stars, wink wink, a knods as good as a wink to a blind bat, wink wink. I like Eddy's take on the Professor but I'm "Old-School I'm afraid, Fred McMurrey had this character down to a T as far as I'm concerned. Eddy's style is good but a little repetitive for my taste at times and this is one time too many really. The film doesn't really call for attitude, it's a much more gentile a story than to be treated this way. It's a great shame that attitude is used for all characters, especially when it isn't called for, stop going over the top with your performances please Eddy, you're better, or should I say greater than that!
