Overview

In 1982, the movie 48 Hrs. established Eddie Murphy as one of Hollywood's brightest comedy stars, and his career has been on the fast track ever since. The Eddie Murphy Collection is a box-set that brings together on home video four of his biggest hits of the 1990s: The Nutty Professor, which stars Murphy as shape-shifting college professor Sherman Klump; The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, the sequel, which features Murphy as no fewer than five members of the Klump family; Life, a bittersweet comedy in which Murphy and Martin Lawrence play two men serving life sentences in a Mississippi prison for crimes they did not commit; and Bowfinger, featuring Murphy as paranoid action-star Kit Ramsey, as well as his look-alike cousin Jiff, who is recruited by shoestring filmmaker Bobby Bowfinger (Steve Martin) to stand in for his better-known relative .

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Daniel Weizmann
The ultimate latter-day Eddie box, this gift collection features Murphy in four of his best-received films of the '90s. The complete odyssey of Sherman Klump in The Nutty Professor and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps finds Murphy in all manner of guises. For the epic prison film Life -- a feature-length partnership with Martin Lawrence, who had played second fiddle to Murphy seven years earlier in Boomerang -- the comic grows old before our eyes. In the fourth film, Steve Martin's Bowfinger, Murphy is in split-character mode, playing both a vain Hollywood star and a goofy simpleton hired to act as his stand-in/impersonator. All told, we're guessing that Murphy plays about seventeen different characters in this quartet of hilarious wide-screen DVDs.
