Mr. Church (2016)

  • Domestic Total Gross: N/A
  • Production Budget: N/A
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 15%


In an upsetting, failed attempt at a comeback, this predictable story of the friendship between an orphaned girl (Britt Robertson) and her hired cook, played by Eddie Murphy, was the comedian’s first film in four years. If the original choice for the title role, Samuel L. Jackson, had not stepped down, he could have easily wiped off the stink of this film using his Marvel money as a rag. Instead, Murphy had to face the damaging burden of critical and financial misfires once again. I am still pulling for you, Eddie. Just be sure to say no to Shrek 5.
