Meet Dave (a.k.a. Starship Dave)

Eddie Murphy, Gabrielle Union, Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks, Judah Friedlander, Pat Kilbane
Director: Brian Robbins

U.S. Opening Date: 11 July 2008

In the upcoming sci-fi comedy Starship Dave a crew of tiny aliens operate a spaceship that has a human form (Eddie Murphy). While trying to save their planet from destruction, the aliens encounter a new problem, as their ship becomes smitten with an Earth woman (Elizabeth Banks).

The last time Murphy tried his hand at sci-fi it was the box office disaster The Adventures of Pluto Nash. Since then Murphy has scored hits with low-brow comedies in which he gets to wear prosthetic “fat suits” such as the Nutty Professor and Norbit.

Still, Starship Dave has a cool concept – who can ever forget those Calvin & Hobbes cartoons that exploited the idea? – and with a killer script it just might be the unexpected comedy hit of 2008. That is, if Murphy can refrain from telling fat jokes . . .

Note: This movie's title has been changed from the intriguing Starship Dave to the bland, rent-it-on-DVD-one-night Meet Dave.
