In this hilarious family comedy, Eddie Murphy delivers an out-of-this-world performance as the “head” of a crew of tiny, human-looking aliens on a mission to save their home planet. They arrive on Earth in the perfect disguise: a spaceship named Dave, which is shaped like an ordinary man and looks exactly like their captain!

Cast & Crew
Meet Dave alone may not radically change the course of Eddie Murphy's drooping career. But it is, at least, a little olive branch held out to his audience. And that's better than Nil.
Dumbfoundingly erratic, for the most part, but smart and funny from time to time, especially when Mr. Murphy, in the pseudo-person of the spaceship, tries to imitate earthling behavior.
The summer popcorn flick manages to deliver more than the standard sci-fi send-up, thanks to a solid supporting cast -- most of whom come from TV -- that help bolster Murphy's average work.
It's a silly kid's movie, nothing more. But for some, this may be a chance to meet Eddie.
