The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Charlie Murphy -- whose credits include co-starring on "Chappelle's Show," lending his voice to the animated series "The Boondocks" and co-writing the feature film Norbit -- unleashes his comic fury in this raw performance.
Brother of the legendary Eddie Murphy but do not sell Charlie short just because he hasn't had the same amount of success. Not only is he a very good writer but his stand-up act is hilarious as well. Plus His film credits have spanned the last 20 years, ranging from Harlem Nights with Eddie Murphy to The Perfect Holiday with Morris Chestnut and Gabrielle Union. Just like the titles suggest Charlie doesn't hold back here, he sounds off about off about airports, Osama bin Laden, cops, hecklers, jail, the Ku Klux Klan, Don Imus and more and he doesn't miss a beat. I certainly enjoyed his piece on people just acting "dumb", I will not give any of it away here or use the words he did here either to protect the innocent. There is no denying he is Eddie's brother with the same looks and smile but he has a sense of humor all his own. I really enjoyed watching this act and when it was over I was left wanting more but I had a great time watching this for an hour. If you like stand-up comedy I highly recommend picking this up, Charlie certainly knows how to make people laugh and the audience all seemed to be having a great time as well. I hope to see more of him in movies or more of his stand-ups because he certainly is talented. The DVD comes with special features that include:
interactive menus; scene access; multiple outtakes and deleted footage; Leroy Smith shorts.
