TOP MOVIE !!!By a customer from GLASGOW , 30 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Stephen Herek directed this comedy-drama in which soul-less exec Ricky Hayman (Jeff Goldblum), programmer for the failing Good Buy Shopping Network, is dismayed by a request to increase sales in two weeks. Bald do-gooder guru G. (Eddie Murphy) assists when Ricky and marketing director Kate (Kelly Preston) get a freeway flat. When G. passes out, tests indicate a heart murmur and heat prostration, so the robed prophet becomes Ricky's house guest. At a party, G. uses hypnosis and psychology to rid guest Nino Cerruti (portraying himself) of his flying fears. Ricky witnesses this and gets the notion to put G. on the air. Unfortunately, G. ignores both cue cards and on-sale products, prompting station owner McBainbridge (Robert Loggia) to calculate Ricky's severance pay. He's back on the job when both sales and ratings soar. The situation eventually causes Ricky to reexamine how his own values became lost in the labyrinth of corporate consumerism.

Absolute peak of feel good entertainmentBy Dashman (3 reviews) from Bristol , 15 Jun 2011It is a little slow at the start, but still interesting. When it picks up it is as good and funny as family entertainment gets.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideAn excellent movie that has many funny moments, any flaws are out weighed by this. Also, a bit of a thinker film that makes you think about how much time you have in life and how fears and hopes may affect your actions in life. Worth watching.
