Funnyman Eddie Murphy returns to theaters on June 12 with Imagine That, a family comedy in which he plays a hot-shot investment banker who retreats to his daughter’s imaginary world when his career takes a nosedive. Speaking of career nosedives, Murphy’s rep took a hit last year when his sci-fi comedy Meet Dave crashed and burned at the box office. Can Imagine That, which co-stars Thomas Haden Church and Vanessa Williams, turn things around for the comedy legend?
Judge for yourself by checking out our exclusive clip from Imagine That, wherein the very funny youngster Yara Shahidi (Role Models) first argues with Murphy’s character, then orders his cronies to pelt him with plastic balls (something that many of us who’ve seen Norbit have often fantasized about doing):
opens nationwide on Friday, June 12, 2009.
