With credits that include, 'Animal House,' 'Blues Brothers,' 'Three Amigos,' 'Trading Places' and 'Coming to America,' it's not too much of a stretch to call director John Landis a comedic genius. On top of that, Landis has been given -- thanks to those last two films on the list -- a unique insight into the mind of Eddie Murphy. This information is particularly useful now, considering Murphy has been in the news recently, as you may have noticed. (He's funny again in 'Tower Heist'! He's going to host the Oscars! He's not going to host the Oscars! He's not funny anymore in 'A Thousand Words'!)
