Eddie Murphy is of course very funny and this dvd contains some real laughs but viewers should be warned that this differs from the VHS version.
One of the Mr. Robinson's neighborhood skit was cut and replaced with 2 other skits that frankly I didn't find funny at all.One is about having a giant , plastic dome put over your house.
Yeah, I don't get it either...
I also find the "Black man undercover as white man " in America skit offensive.
I realize things were different back in the early 80's but I can't help wondering if the skit was put out today if it wouldn't be termed race baiting.
The real gems here in my view are the two Mr. Robinson's neighborhood sketches, "Black talk", the" fake Beatle" and The Tooth fairy being interviewed on a talk show.
