It’s About Time That….

Eddie Murphy retire from the movie making biz:

Eddie Murphy is dishing about leaving the movie business for good after the release of his latest film. “I have close to fifty movies and it’s like, why am I in the movies?” he said, adding, “I’ve done that part now. I’ll go back to the stage and do standup.”

Murphy, 47, said that while a “Beverly Hills Cop 4” flick was in the works, he didn’t want to do it, because “the movie wasn’t ready to be done.” Murphy said he agreed to do “Cop 3” because of the large fee he was offered. “They said this is how much we’re going to pay you. I said, ‘let’s go shoot it! I don’t care if the script ain’t right.” As for Eddie’s love life, the new bachelor [said] he is currently looking for a woman with “just honesty and some other things.”

Hmmm. Wonder if by “other things” he was referring to an adams apple and the old twig and berries?

Eddie’s most recent films have been sooo ass, he should’ve let that ship set sail years ago. The real question is: Sure, he may take the stage again, but can the brotha recover from years of doing wack ass kiddie movies ‘n’ shyte? Only time will tell…..

    LMAOOO @ the twig and berries comment! Yeah he is looking for that constant back door action and taco meat on his chest. I am glad he is retiring because quite frankly I am tired of his same type of movies thing.

    WHERE THE HELL IS CHARLIE MURPHY! I LOVE HIM AND THINK HE HIS HILARIOUS! I WANT TO SEE HIM ON THE BIG SCREEN!

    Eddie is one of the highest grossing male actor out there. The man is paid he knew Tracey was trying to stick him for his papers.

    50 movies huh…I can probably think of 20 w/sequels off the top of my head…he is an acting genius though…he really should have recieved an Oscar for all the characters he’s played.

  • Aunt Viv

    …and with the exception of Dreamgirls, your scripts ain’t been right since Coming to America…

  • SMDH

    I love Eddie as an actor – I just wish he’d do a better job of being a father to his daughter by Mel B..

    Eddie’s cool though!!

  • Aunt Viv

    Oh I forgot about Shrek.

  • Sarafina

  • PHillyphilly

    Yall R CRAZY NORBIT IS THE SHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYT!!!!!!!!!!! HOW YOU DOIN!!! LOLOLOLOLOL

  • Royal Chocolate

    This fool doesn’t know what he wants. To find a woman with “just honesty and some other things”, you must be a man with “just honesty and some other things.”

  • B17(Espana r tha champs and im free from trainin camp!)

    Beverly Hills 1&2 are my favorite Eddie movies..

    It makes me wonder what growin up in Murphy household was like..him with his weird ass and Charlie with his crazy ass!

  • Envy (Est. in 1983)

  • Lauren

    Maybe he’ll stop doing movies and take care of ALL kids kids, not some of them, and maybe not.

  • P

    he shold go back to standup. he’d at least have a chance to rehab his image.

  • I'm Just Me

    @ Envy

    I thought it was going to say he was finally coming out of the closet.

  • I'm Just Me

    OMG STOP IT WITH THE HATER WORD ALREADY. BEFORE PEOPLE WERE USING HATING LIKE IT WAS GOING OUT OF STYLE PEOPLE WERE ENTITLED TO NOT LIKE SOMEONE’S MOVIES, IMAGE, LOOK. YOU LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE. DAMMIT IF I DON’T LIKE BEYONCE DRESS ONE TIME I HAVE TO BE A HATER. IF I DON’T LIKE ONE OR 12 OF EDDIE’S MOVIES I AM A HATER. IF I LIKE CHARLIE MURPHY BETTER THAN EDDIE I AM A HATER. ENOUGH ALREADY! NOT EVERYONE LIKES EVERY PERSON, THING THAT THEY DO. IT ISN’T THAT SERIOUS TO BE CALLED IT HATING. GET OVER IT! PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN OPINIONS!!!

    Sorry…that was my PMS moment for the day.

    Eddie Murphy is the top box office draw of all time. Give the man some credit. He brought wise-crackin, cop buddy movies into fame. Show some love and stop hatin’!

  • Jahpson

    his reign ended in the 80s and 90s for the best movies.

    The nutty professor was the last funny movie that he ever made. its about time he stood down
