5.0 out of 5 stars The most underrated movie of the year November 27, 2008
Meet Dave is absolutely incredible. The movie centers around a crew of minute humanoid aliens from planet Nil. They are logical, emotionless creatures who do not know about things like love. They send a special device to Earth to drain the oceans and harvest the salt - their main power source - to avoid a massive energy crisis on Nil. In their ship, shaped like a normal-sized human being, the crew (the main characters being the naive Captain, the by-the-book No.2, the pretty No. 3, and the seemingly butch security officer No. 4 who discovers a different side of himself; as well as No. 17 the repairman and the Head Engineer, No. 10) discover new things about Earth through a woman named Gina and her son, Josh, who has found the orb that they had sent. Emotions start to rub off on the crew from the Earthlings.

I think a lot of people didn't see this movie because of Eddie Murphy. I've heard he is not a nice person in real life, so that might be why. To properly enjoy this movie, don't see it as a 'Eddie Murphy movie'.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun bit of fluff December 30, 2008
Dave is a silly bit of fluff staring Eddie Murphy as both the ship (a ship shaped like a man in a white suit) and as the captain), a tiny 1-inch tall man. The ship and crew arrive on earth to drain the salt from Earth's oceans to save their homeworld. This is okay because earth is clearly a planet full of savages. However, as time passes and the crew of the ship becomes more attached to the 'giants' which surround them, they begin to reconsider their feelings on the matter.

I found this film kind of amusing. It isn't rocket science, and there are times when bathroom humor prevails (such as when the giant ship must dispose of food it has 'consumed' to look human). But this is probably something kids will enjoy.

Overall, I was amused enough to watch this film from beginning to end, although, I kind of wish we could've seen what happened to #2 Murphy's second in command, even if he did go a bit rambo at the end, he did have a bit of a point. Murphy's acting was amusing, and he really did a decent job of portraying the wooden, jerky and weird ship.

5.0 out of 5 stars MEET DAVE IS AN EDDIE MURPHY CLASSIC !!!!! March 6, 2009
It was horrible to hear that this movie did not do well at the box office. I must admit that I wanted to go see it, but do to all the negative reviews, I waited for it on DVD. ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS & CRITICS ARE WRONG !!!! This movie made me laugh throughout. How hard is it to make a clean comedy? It has to be real hard, because not too many people can do it. I just hope that this does not stop Eddie. Great movie for adults and children.

Meet Dave is definitely an under-rated film, but the question is by just how much? Certainly Eddie Murphy has made some, well let's just say 'interesting' decisions when it comes to choices of movies to do. He turned in Oscar calibre work in Dream Girls, but then took a serious dive by doing the relatively pathetic Norbert (which probably cost him the Oscar for Dream Girls). Besides Dream Girls though, just what serious, or better labeled 'quality' work would anyone really remember Murphy from over the last several years? You'd have to go back to the original 48 Hours, or Beverly Hills Cop movies to find material that would generate any sort of consensus as being 'quality work'.

Murphy has turned out some family oriented, or at least youth oriented, films in the meantime including Daddy Day Care and the like, and the audience for that film seems to be the audience that is the target for Meet Dave.

The Dave that viewers will be meeting turns out to be a space ship filled with tiny humanoids that have come to retrieve a device that was sent to gather materials for providing power in the homeworld of the space travellers. The ship just happens to look like the captain who we see in the command chair, and of course the ship also resembles an Earthling which is supposed to make it easy for the space travellers to accomplish their mission while roving the planet. Nothing could be quite so simple though as the travellers have researched Earth culture from a few different sources, none of which provide a complete and detailed enough view of the world to really help them blend in. Along the way the inhabitants of Dave learn a lot about the Earth creatures and perhaps learn a lot about themselves as well.

Eddie Murphy (Dave Ming Chang; the small alien) and Gina (Elizabeth Banks; the human being) do a great job in this movie playing their respective characters. The movie basically is about a group of tiny aliens from Planet Nil who come down to earth in a human body like spaceship, which is the giant human version of "Dave". Dave is just a random name that Eddie Murphy's character gives when he awkwardly meets Gina after she accidentally runs him over with her car. We don't know what his 'real' name is, but it is probably not an earthlike name. Anyway the aliens have to save their home planet from an energy crisis so they try to drain the earth's oceans on get the special "jewel" that a bully steals from Gina's son's character (I can't recall his name). The giant Dave later has to shake the bully due upside down to recover the special orb from him.

As the movie progresses Dave loses sight on the real mission and gets sidetracked with Gina and her son (I think he develops some romantic feelings for her). This start to get real complicated from here as the alien crew starts getting very frustrated and plan to overthrow him as captain and get back on the mission. It starts getting real funny and a bit scary as a different captain takes over and causes chaos on earth by zapping and destroying things, and soon all of the police are after the giant Dave.

In the movie I love the growing bond between the aliens and the humans on earth. It shows that there can be an understanding between two completely different cultures or even species. I recommend you watch the movie in Blu-Ray for the special effects to be clearer. This is a classic entertaining movie that children of all ages will enjoy and there is a love and friendship theme to the movie. I first wanted to see it because I love Eddie Murphy movies (especially his Doctor DooLittle movies), but then I started liking the movie itself.
