Eddie Murphy Career Bust: We Told You on December 26th

Share

Suddenly everyone’s writing obits for Eddie Murphy’s career. I told you on December 26th that this would happen: http://http://www.showbiz411.com/2011/12/26/tower-heist-failure-is-that-the-end-of-eddie-murphy

So what? “A Thousand Words” got a Zero on Rottentomatoes.com. My friends, Eddie doesn’t care. He’s over it. He’s had bigger failures. He’s loaded. He does what he wants. He walks out of the Oscars. He walks out on the Oscars. He doesn’t do publicity. He’s laughing right now. He is LOADED. Do you get it? “Dreamgirls” was the closest he was going to get to anything. That’s over.

It’s worse for Dreamworks and Paramount that “A Thousand Words” got not one decent review. They couldn’t even get one from the usual shills. The studios lose. Eddie got his money.
