They may not have the finesse of the slick-suited studs in Steven Soderbergh's "Ocean's" trilogy, but the pillage-prone cast of upcoming crime comedy "Tower Heist" has something even better: a whole lot of Alan Alda.
The Brett Ratner-directed film starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy tells the story of what might happens when Wall Street picks the pockets of Main Street and the little guy decides to get even. Think Madoff, but replace all the pilfering from non-profits and jail time with cathartic Murphy-helmed hijinks. Get More »
Has it really been 27 years since Eddie Murphy became a mega-star with a little comedy called "Beverly Hills Cop?"
The movie became the highest-grossing film of 1984—yes, making even more than "Ghostbusters"— and earned an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. And of course you couldn't escape the comedy's radical soundtrack, which featured hits like the Pointer Sisters' "Neutron Dance," Glenn Frey's "The Heat Is On" and the ubiquitous synth theme "Axel F."
This Blu-ray debut is simply the best the movie has ever looked or sounded at home. Get More »
Eddie Murphy or Usher as the Godfather of Soul?

The KCA also "blimped" Jackie Chan, who stars as the wise (and butt-kicking) martial arts mentor, Mr. Han, as Favorite Buttkicker.
(Let's face it -- it would be hard to beat Jackie Chan in such a category, no matter who you are.) Get More »
Forget recent flops like "Norbit" and "Meet Dave" and remember for a moment why Eddie Murphy is a comedy legend.
From his first appearances on "Saturday Night Live" to "48 Hrs.," "Trading Places," "Beverly Hills Cop," "Coming to America" and a lifetime of stand up, the comedian has secured his place on the top.
Comedy Central knows this well, as the the network has decided to grant the funnyman with the first-ever Comedy Icon Award, to be handed out at the inaugural Comedy Awards. MTV and Comedy Central teamed up for the new awards show to spotlight emerging talents and classic acts in the world of comedy. What better way to kick it off then by nodding to one of the greats?
