    Eddie Murphy not talking? Hmmm...

    Mr. Murphy's voice was/is his path to success. Sure, he can do some physical comedy but in this movie, when his (impressive) imitation of bird sounds and various facial expressions and moods have to carry the film, that's not so good. I did get a few laughs out of this show and really liked the message as it got serious toward the end because, like his character (SPOILER ALERT), I still haven't been fully able to forgive someone who abandoned me many years ago, but this movie certainly doesn't match up to something like The Nutty Professor. Overall it's a decent family film but, of course, there are some heavy doses of rough language here and there...
