Eddie Murphy is a great actor in this drama/comedy that depicts the fast-paced modern life that surrounds most of us.

I thought it was extremely funny and refreshing. I especially liked the message it was trying to send. Others ************ it with me did not stop laughing either. Great job!

The New York Times
The director, Brian Robbins, perhaps as a result of his prime-time pedigree, has so carefully engineered this manipulative machine that little emotional residue remains - only a product inoffensive, unsurprising and uninspiring. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The concept is unoriginal, the scenarios aren't funny, and its message is banal. Plus, Murphy alternately hams it up and phones it in. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The formulaic script by Steve Koren doesn't manage to exploit the absurd premise with any discernible wit or invention, and the star is left floundering. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
If only this Eddie Murphy flick had taken its own advice and spent a little more time being reflective instead of hyperactive, it might have overcome a trite script and awful, obvious excuses for comedy. Full Review
Justin Chang
Alas, even Murphy's largely wordless, physically adroit performance can't redeem this tortured exercise in high-concept spiritualist hokum. Full Review
