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!

I watched countless YouTube reviews that claimed that this movie was horrible and pounced on it for being one of the biggest flops in the history of movie making. I won't tell you I have good taste in movies but I liked this movie. Yes... laugh.

The story is a lot better than most and at least all of the actors are doing their best. If the cast was not a laundry list of famous actors and cost so much to make, this movie would not be judged so severely by the public. Also, it's not a comedy. People were expecting this movie to be funny, but it's not funny, just light-hearted.

I think Eddie Murphy played the part of Pluto Nash as any actor would. He wasn't hamming it up full of the "Eddie Murphy movie formula" full of jokes and sassy remarks. And I liked that about the movie. I am not a huge fan of those antics anyway, so to me this works. This was a stretch for him as an actor. If you are expecting the typical Eddie Murphy humor, then this movie will really suck for you.

I removed one star from my rating because even though I enjoyed the film, it had too many flaws in the script and didn't quite make the edits work. At times it seemed some shots were in appropriately put together with huge glaring mistakes.

I am a freakish science fiction lover, so the world of Pluto Nash on the moon really appealed to me. There just aren't a lot of movies like this because this kind of special effects is really expensive to make. In this movie, many of the establishing shots of this world were amazing.

I wonder what Disney would have done with this movie if they had it.

There are certain movies in this world I consider "guilty pleasures" because they are so stupidly bad they are enjoyable ... such as Independence Day, Big Trouble in Little China .... and The Adventures of Pluto Nash. I can pop any one of these movies in the DVD and go about my business - clean the house, play on the computer, or actually watch the movie.

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?

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.

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.
