Murphy had done multiple roles in a movie before and Lord knows he’s done them since. But behind the fat suits, the wigs and the over-the-top caricaturing still lurks a rarely equalled talent/charisma combo:
“I started out as an impressionist and that’s all about observing.” In Bowfinger, his observations hold true. As the alien-fearing, dick-exposing, Klan-obsessed action hero Kit Ramsey, Murphy is bold, outrageous and deliciously satirical, skewering both Hollywood excess and his own public profile.
Meanwhile, his endearingly clueless Jiff (“I’m really hoping to get a career running errands”) reminds you just how damn likeable Murphy can play.
Greatest Moment: Jiff risks his life crossing a busy highway full of ‘stunt drivers’.
