5.0 out of 5 stars This is what Sci-Fi comedies are all about! April 7, 2006
Format:DVD
OK, first of all, I have to qualify my point of view: get this-- I am a huge fan of good, funny sci-fi flicks. I have to shake my head and wonder what the f*^k those folks that bashed this movie were expecting? I mean really. I was expecting (hoping for) complete silliness. This delivers nonsense in great heaps. If you are an Eddie Murphy fan, then this is Eddie at his most absurd! If you liked the Fifth Element, this is even better! The effects are great, the chick is FINE, and the jokes are non-stop. I laughed out loud I don't know how many times.

For those of you that gave this anything less than four stars, I say you are doing the rest of us a disservice. You should watch films that are more suited to your tastes. Geez!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Popcorn Fluff May 31, 2004
Format:DVD
There are some movies that are not meant to be great art. They aim to be nothing more than a fun way to pass time and eat popcorn at the same time. The Adventures of Pluto Nash is one of those movies.
Eddie Murphy is great as the intrepid hero Pluto Nash as he fights the sinister space mafia. Originally, Nash was a small businessman who the mafia tries to shake down. However, Nash decides to fight the mafia in what turns out to be one of the most slapsticky sci-fi adventure flicks of all time. Thrills and spills abound in this wild and wacky funfest. Pluto Nash is a well-plotted futuristic sci-fi adventure story with a comedic bent.
It also features a great cast with Rosario Dawson, Pam Grier, John Cleese, Randy Quaid, Peter Boyle and Jay Mohr.
If you just want to relax and have fun while eating popcorn, then this is a great movie for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad film. August 21, 2005
By Gully
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of Eddie Murphy for ages. I won't say he can do no wrong, but it is rare indeed when he does. My kids love the Donkey from Shrek- thank heavens they haven't seen his "blue" side ("Raw")

I'm also a bigtime science fiction fan. So the idea of Murphy in outer space was an inspired one. He was kind of an even more wiseacre Han Solo in this one, and I liked that.

Yeah, the script was a bit on the weak side, but Eddie's rapid-fire wit and the looney cavalcade of supporting players gave the proceedings an affable air of goofiness that was often infectious.

I could have done without some of the toilet humor, though.

While "Pluto Nash" may not be "out of this world", it is still a "blast".

It's a two or three star movie, but I enjoyed it so that's all that counts. It was a dumb movie, but entertaining. Need I go on? As for the production value; no complaints. It would be nice to see the "Sixth Element" or "Starship Troopers II", but I don't think I'm going to get my wish. So cheesy movies like this and Tremors III will do. You can tell their reach was further than their grasp and there is a little money thrown at the movie. The CGI is nice, acting was what you'd expect. I didn't belly laugh or anything but maybe a giggle. What else can I say?
As for everyone who hated Pluto Nash; what did you expect?

4.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was good... September 22, 2006
By Danchip
Format:DVD
Although this movie doesn't depict the Eddie Murphy we all might think, if you put your expectations of Eddie aside and just watch the movie, it's actually pretty good. I wouldn't say it was my favorite Sci-Fi Comedy movie, but I'm tired of people giving it a bad rap just because they focus on Eddie Murphy doing something "different" than what they expect.

If you want to watch this movie because you loved "Eddie Murphy Raw" then maybe you shouldn't watch it...however, if you want to laugh at light-hearted humor, then I think it's definitely worth the watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun time, not for grouchy critics April 13, 2003
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
A hilarious movie full of charming characters. The only limitation is people who do not enjoy "stupid" humor will not like it, but the front cover of the box should clue people in.
Pluto Nash (Murphy) is an ex-crook trying to make it in the honest world of running a night club, but gets into trouble with the moon mob when he refuses to sell out to a mysterious casino baron. With his robot side-kick Bruno (Randy Quaid, AKA "cousin Eddie" from the Vacation movies) a beautiful singer (Rosario Dawson), and his mother, Pluto Nash is chased across the moon colony by a bunch of goons while trying to find the bad guy that is behind it all.
Lots of shooting, goofy robot interactions, freeze-dried Chihuahuas, and some good old Eddie Murphy wit make this a great movie for people who "like this sort of thing."

4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than You've Heard June 12, 2010
Format:DVD
Take a moment to consider the following: The Adventures of Pluto Nash had a robust budget of $100M and managed to gross only $4.41 million at the box office (total loss of $95.59 million), making it the largest financial loss of any motion picture to date.

With such a dubious distinction, one would naturally expect the film to be a complete and utter disaster and yet, it was because of the negativity surrounding this project that I found myself intrigued. This is a science fiction comedy after all, with a star-studded cast led by Eddie Murphy no less. Despite reading a crop of reviews that only further cemented the notion that the film was horrid, I went and ordered the DVD to find out once and for all what this un-hype was really all about.

Written originally in 1985 (when Eddie Murphy was on fire so to speak), the Pluto Nash script is said to have gone through a dozen different writers before the final draft, which is credited only to Neil Cuthbert (of Mystery Men fame).

The film tells the tale of a lunar colony in the year 2080 called Little America and a retired smuggler by the name of Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy). The picture opens with Nash visiting an old friend, club owner Anthony Frankowski (played pretty perfectly by a dark-haired Jay Mohr).

Nash advises Frankowski to switch up his style and take on a stage name in effort to gain popularity with potential fans. Moments later while Nash is leaving the restroom (which is eerily reminiscent to the restrooms of the garage that installs my tires), he discovers a few loan sharks: Gino (Burt Young) and Larry (Lillo Brancato) attempting to knock-off the delinquent Frankowski by forcing him to ingest battery acid.
