Just an average Eddie Murphy flick
I’ve seen a lot of Eddie Murphy films growing up and Imagine That is far from being one of his greatest works. This one’s smack dab in the middle despite its sincerity due to its hackneyed storyline. What I can say though is that Yara Shahidi, who plays Murphy’s daughter in the film, has potential to be a big star provided that she doesn’t continue her annoying tendencies. Other than that I really don’t have much to say except that it’s watchable, but don’t get your hopes up if you were expecting a truly uplifting movie.
