Meet Dave

Overall C

Meet Dave (Eddie Murphy). He may look like a human being, but really he is an elaborately disguised spaceship for a crew of miniature aliens on a secret mission. The tiny extraterrestrials have obviously given great thought to each part of their plan -- except for the possibility of their machine deciding to fall in love with a sexy Earthling (Elizabeth Banks).

Unbeknownst to the humans, the aliens intend to raid Earth in order to save their own planet. Mutiny among the crewmembers results in Dave blasting his way out of a police holding cell, blowing up a cruiser and coming under attack from Homeland Security. A man is hit by a car and later is struck on the head with a bottle. When two crooks attempt to rob a convenience store, one of them is tossed against the wall and the other has his gun destroyed. Kids bully a smaller boy on several occasions. A man kicks a cat across the room. Bathroom jokes include a man passing both money and undigested hotdogs. A brief scene of male buttock nudity is seen. A negative homosexual stereotype is shown, along with infrequent sexual comments. Several terms of Deity are also used.
