Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: Reginald Hudlin
Cast: Eddie Murphy, Robin Givens, Halle Berry, David Alan Grier, Grace Jones

Eddie Murphy plays a selfish womaniser who finally meets his match in Robin Givens. Murphy's comedy is surprisingly and delightfully restrained, but the film itself is an overlong celebration of chauvinism (there's about ten minutes worth of material stretched over two hours).
