By now, I have seen almost all the movies starring Eddie Murphy (they all show up sooner on later on the diverse Dutch channels I have) and his career can be split basically in 3 parts. First, you had the 80's during which his movies were some massive box-office success, often critically heralded, making Murphy a superstar in the process. Then, you had the 90's during which Eddie Murphy was still pretty successful, even though the movies were not really that good. Finally, you have the part which started at the beginning of the 00's and which is still ongoing nowadays, a period during which Murphy has been making one terrible movie after the other, movies which always flopped at the box-office. This flick was definitely a typical effort from the 90's. Indeed, it was pretty popular and generated a sequel and, eventually, I have to admit, it was not bad at all. Actually, for once, Eddie Murphy gave a sober performance as a straight guy, instead of the foul-mouthed hysterical characters he usually plays and, this time, the main attraction were actually the talking animals which were most of the time actually pretty funny. To conclude, it is nothing mind-blowing whatsoever and the plot was definitely ridiculous but it remains a funny and entertaining mainstream feature and it think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
