    Everybody falls off at some point.

    Eddie Murphy still has the best batting average among SNL alumni by FAR.

    I'm not a fan, but Will Ferrell is still doing alright.

    He's doing all right but he still doesn't stack up very well compared to Eddie.

    48 Hrs, Another 48 Hrs, Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, Beverly Hills Cop 2, Coming to America, Harlem Nights, The Nutty Professor.

    Nobody else from SNL has that many classics. Also note that Eddie starred in each of those and wasn't just a supporting actor or writer.

    um RAW. Eddie Murphy Raw is also a classic worth mentioning. And I don't care if it's just stand up. It's brilliant.

    If I hadn't seen any of those I would have always thought Murphy had been terrible. Look at his recent stuff to Will's. Murphy has fallen hard.

    Or, Delirious, for the superior stand-up act, though Raw isn't THAT far behind, really. But still, nothing tops IIIICEEEE CREEEEAM.

    Well. I guess the rampant homophobia does, but, yeah.

    It still upsets me that Eddie was supposed to be in Ghostbusters as a former navy seal that was going to be the only effective member of the team...

    yeah...someone put Casual and Racism in the same sentence.
    Couple of those strike me as someone being really oversensitive.

    On top of just not getting the "Moo!" one, Kitty Pryde's statement is SUPPOSED to garner that reaction, because that's the equivalent of calling her a mutie, that's anything but casual racism. That's a valid in-universe point being made.

    America has never been sold on the idea of the romantic notions of black men because that would lead to dwelling on what it is even more uncomfortable with : black male sexuality. Mainstream Hollywood is no different. It has never intentionally attempted to create a black romantic leading man. Nor has it ever purposely tried to manufacture a black male teen idol, the type that girls across the country would post pictures of across their bedroom walls. The industry has no stake, no investment, in pushing forward a black actor like that because that type of status has all but been the exclusive domain of the white male. When it comes to Hollywood’s concept of a non-threatening black male one key characteristic is a lack of an overt physical appeal, which is why since its very beginning Hollywood has been more comfortable presenting an image of the comedic black man, the buffoon. The movie business has very little use for black guys with sex appeal.
