Will Tower Heist Be the First Funny Live-Action Movie that Eddie Murphy Has Made in 13 Years?

If you don’t count Bowfinger, it’s been 19 years since Eddie Murphy made a funny live-action film, and that’s only if you count The Distinguished Gentleman and Boomerang (I do). If you don’t, add another 4 years to take you back to Coming to America.

That’s one long dry streak. Can Brett Ratner interrupt it? In a Ben Stiller movie? It seems doubtful, and the trailer doesn’t offer much hope.
