We love Eddie Murphy at theGrio (see our picks for his 10 best film roles), but even he would admit that he’s had his share of critical and commercial duds. His new light comedy, A Thousand Words, doesn’t look like it’ll go down as a classic either. So far, the reviews have been atrocious, and some have argued that Murphy is simply earning a paycheck with this project. The Oscar nominated icon has often been one of his own harshest critics, knocking his roles in Holy Man, Best Defense and Imagine That after the fact. Here our picks for the 10 Eddie Murphy’s we wish he never made.
