In I Eat Movies #4, Dino serves Mike his first ever tasting of a noticeable blindspot from the peak of Eddie Murphy's career. Dishing on Murphy's seismic impact on comedy from a young age helping to single handedly revitalize the ship that was Saturday Night Live without its captain, the fellas dive into the funnyman's super powered takeover of Hollywood with his roles in 48 Hrs., Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, The Golden Child and Coming to America that all lead to him bookending the decade with his directorial debut in Harlem Nights. While the aforementioned highs and lows (a detour into family fare and contemporary Razzie nominated messes) are covered in addition to Murphy's resurgence with the Rudy Ray Moore biopic Dolemite Is My Name, the spotlight light is all on the period gangster piece that brought three generations of American comedy institutions together for the first time. Open up wide as I Eat Movies #4: Mike's First Time - Harlem Nights (1989) is ready for consumption!
