Keke, caught this movie yesterday with Deardear and Jimmy @ Tampines Mall.
Dave Ming Chang (Eddie Murphy), newly arrived in New York City, may be the ultimate fish out of water. There's something about him that's not quite right for starters, he seems remarkably out of place and uncomfortable in his own body. And for good reason: "Dave" is not a man at all, but a ship made in the image of its miniature-sized captain. It's Eddie Murphy in Eddie Murphy in "Meet Dave."
Keke, Eddie Murphy is soo funny in this show! His facial expressions are just priceless! He's good at acting robots. =X The storyline is pretty good, though some may say it's very exaggerated or etc, I have only one word to say. MOVIE.
Well, there were some choice quotes that I found really funny from the movie.
[in an alley outside Gina's apartment sometime after she hits Dave with her car]
Gina Morrison: Hi, are you all right? Because you just ran off!
Captain: Contact, everyone! Our first verbal encounter!
Captain: Thank you for your concern.
Dave: [speaks with extremely high pitch; bottles explode in background]
Captain: It's way too high! More bass!
Dave: [speaks in extremely low pitch]
Captain: Level the frequency!
Dave: [speaking perfectly] I'm all better now.
Josh: [to Gina] How hard did you hit this guy?
Keke, Josh is so cute!
Captain: Number 3, do we have significant linguistic information to communicate with these natives?They are kinda ignorant right? Despite them thinking we are inferior..
No. 3 - Cultural Officer: Yes, I tapped into their central planetary database named "Google."
Captain: What a frivolous name for such a vital function.
No. 3 - Cultural Officer: Well, if you prefer, there's another called "Ya Hoo."
Gina Morrison: Dave, I feel just terrible about this whole thing...uh, and I was gonna have some breakfast. Would you like to join me?
Dave: No, I really have to be going now.
Gina Morrison: Are you sure? I mean, I sort of have a rule that when I hit somebody with my car, I need to make them breakfast!
[she laughs, Dave doesn't.]
Gina Morrison: That was a joke.
Dave: [blankly] Hahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahaha ahaha ha hahahahahahahaha. Woo-hoo, woo!
Awkward! But you really have to watch this scene to really understand it~
Gina Morrison: I'm Gina, by the way. Gina Morrison.I think this is the funniest of all! Ahaha, imagine a black guy saying a Chinese name!
[pauses, waiting for him to tell her his name.]
Gina Morrison: And you are?
No. 3 - Cultural Officer: This is a list of the most common names on this planet.
Captain: My name is...
Dave: Ming Chang.
Gina Morrison: Ming Chang?
Gina Morrison: Sorry, sorry, you just struck me more like a "Dave" or something.
Dave: Which happens to be my other name.
Gina Morrison: Dave...Ming Chang?
Dave: Dave Ming Chang.
I give this movie 3.7 out of 5 apples
