    The funniest thing he’s done in the last 15 years was voicing a donkey.

      He cashed in, can’t blame him for that. That said, he has not been funny since the late 80s/early 90s. My favorite movie of his will always be “Trading Places” I watch it every December as a kind of holiday classic

        Coming To America is still one of the funniest and quotable movies ever made. Eddie Murphy was the man in his day before the high concept flops and cornball family movies.
