Eddie works well with a fantasy backdrop like that time he tried to spin he was only giving that prostitute a ride.

Not even moderately enjoyable, even on the level of camp. And for the record, some scenes are so painfully shot and staged I had a hard time even looking at the screen. Sometimes amateurism implies there is some joy to the work. Not so in this dribble.

Rewatch. The Obvious Looney Tunes views of Eastern Asia and their religious practices aside, Golden Child really tries to be everything to everyone. There's a couple of good laughs here-- more than in both Beverly Hills Cop sequels combined-- and the story is so ludicrous it's hard not to kind of smile and nod. Not very good, but a wonderful little time capsule.

By 1986, Murphy's laugh had become a trademark like MJ's 'hee-hee': a crowd pleasing quirk that also doubled as a crutch. It was a finely honed technique that was used quite purposively in T.G.C to distract audiences from the complete lameness of the material. Murphy cranks it out to fill in gaps left by the screenwriter and/or to inform viewers that he is aware of the film's absurdity. It doesn't work. T.G.C is an ungainly mix of styles that never coheres, and it has aged terribly.

My all time favorite Eddie Murphy film. A classic in my eyes. Criticker was way off on this one.
