Movie Summary

Director:
Brian Robbins
Released:
2008
Rating:
PG

Meet Dave follows the exploits of the emotionless miniature crew of the human-shaped spacecraft modeled after its Captain (Eddie Murphy). After a head-first landing into Liberty Island, the robotic ship tries to blend in with its human counterparts while searching for an orb sent to extract the salt from Earth's oceans. Although completing the mission will save their planet, it will destroy ours. As the crew pilots Dave through New York, they discover the enigma known as the human race. During their quest through the city they also collide with one of its worst drivers. In trying to avoid a lawsuit after crashing into Dave, Gina Morrison (Elizabeth Banks) takes him to her home to make sure he is all right. There the crew discovers the missing orb as well as Gina's son, Josh (Austyn Myers). Along the way to saving their planet, the crew begins to encounter strange new things called feelings. How do formerly emotionless people deal with their first taste of fear, anger, lust, and love? The only way they can - mass confusion.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Aimed squarely at the same family audiences that flocked to Murphy's "Doctor Dolittle" comedies, this is a lightly amusing and surprisingly sweet Fox release.

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Though mildly amusing, Murphy's two characters in Meet Dave -- a wee captain and a humanoid spaceship -- neither tax nor stretch him.

    Los Angeles Times

    Pays lip service to the joys of exploring new worlds, but it never steps off the tour bus.
