Charlie Murphy would have been a much better choice

Fuck my life.

That film was originally written for Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Chris Tucker and Dave Chappelle.
This looks infinitely less compelling. UGH.

Remove Ben Stiller and I'd go see it.

Cant view the clip, but everything i've seen from Eddie Murphy lately tells me that he just doesnt have it anymore.

He's simply nothing like the old Eddie in live interviews, the old charm is just gone, too much money, too much Hollywood in his veins or something, like he's forgotten who he was & where he came from.

ya, wtf happened to Chris Tucker? He was awesome in Friday, played that part with Charlie Sheen, the gay announcer guy with blue hair in 5th element and then the 3 Rush Hour movies and that's it! he's gone!

My guess is he just got fat and happy. He made a ton of $$$$ off the Rush Hour flicks.

Probably figured out the crazy shit that goes on in hollywood and said " I"M OUT", just like Dave Chapelle

Now, see, I saw this trailer today and I think with Rock, Tucker, and Chappelle it wouldn't be as interesting. Not to stereotype, but... four black guys plan a heist? Nothing really there of interest. But when you think of Ben Stiller and Matthew Broderick, you think "dopey white guys who have no business trying to pull off a heist", which is where the comedy should come in.

The "but they said these hats would keep us warmer" line spoiled the who thing for me.

Meh. They're just working the one-note joke, which I'm sure the whole film does. "Look at the dumb white middle-class guys trying to do something illegal". :shrug: Worked okay just now for "Horrible Bosses", I'm sure it'll work fine for this one. I'm not saying it's gonna be comedy gold, but with Stiller and Broderick and Eddie Murphy it at least piques my interest.

It is these two that make me not want to see it. They have both been horrible in movies lately.

This movie looks fucking stupid........makes "Showtime" look like the best comedy in ages.

I know he doesn't get much love lately, but Ive always liked Stiller. He does what he does very well. It's also nice to see Broderick get some decent work again.

I also like Stiller. Not necessarily his humor, which is usually goofy and not even funny. But I actually think he's a pretty good actor within his role. (Even though most of his roles are fluff pieces.) Take "Night At The Museum", for example; he makes you believe he's actually that security guard, and the kid playing his son is actually his kid. Kevin James is the same way. They're not Sir Laurence Olivier but within their limited abilities they're believable. I don't go out of my way to see a film just because he's in it, but he's certainly not a reason I wouldn't see a film.

Paul Blart was a huge hit.
