A notoriously unsuccessful 2002 Creator/EddieMurphy vehicle that attempted to combine a Rat Pack-esque plot with sci-fi.

Murphy plays Pluto Nash, owner of a successful nightclub on the moon, when goons from aspiring entrepreneur Rex Crater come to buy the club. When Pluto refuses he's forced to go on the run to survive and unravel the truth of who Rex Crater is and what he's planning for the moon.

The film cost an ''insane'' amount of money to make and [[BoxOfficeBomb made almost none of it back]]. To this day, Murphy and costar Creator/AlecBaldwin [[OldShame have disowned the film]] and it's considered one of the biggest flops in cinema.

!!Contains Examples Of:

* AffablyEvil: Rex Crater, being [[spoiler:a clone of Pluto]], is a very nice guy.
* ArtificialGravity
* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The film is supposed to take place in the Moon, where gravity is 1/6 or Earth's one, yet they move and act as if they were on our planet's surface. Artificial gravity generators?
** There ''is'' a "Prepare For Full Gravity" sign on the entrance-ramp at the edge of the DomedHometown, so technically they ''did'' try to justify it.
* AxCrazy: Bruno.
* BerserkButton: Pluto goes berserk on a {{Mook}} for blowing up his club, as the bar stools were made of real wood, which apparently (and quite logically) costs a small fortune to get hold of on the moon. Rex later has a similar reaction when Pluto bangs up his wooden model props.
* BreastExpansion: PlayedForLaughs in one scene.
* CarChase
* ChekhovsGun: A particularly painful example as it's critical to the entire plot of the film, in the introduction Pluto makes a blink-and-you'll-miss-it reference to having his kidney taken out in prison. [[spoiler:The DNA from it was used to clone him and make Rex Crater]].
* DisneyVillainDeath:[[spoiler: Rex Crater.]]
* DomedHometown: Well, it ''is'' set on the moon.
* EvilTwin: [[spoiler: Rex Crater to Pluto.]]
* ExpositionDump: The film is full of these, usually taking place indoors during some mundane activity, resulting from the film's infamously TroubledProduction.
* HeroicBuild[=/=]AmazonianBeauty: [[UndercoverAsLovers While posing as a couple to get info]], Pluto and Dina go to see a body alteration specialist, who shows them different projections of what their bodies could look like. One of these is the pair as a male and female bodybuilder. Pluto, cracking a joke about Dina's bust needing work, [[AllMenArePerverts then asks the specialist to make some adjustments]], resulting in Dina being given a tune-up in [[BreastExpansion the front]] and [[MaleGaze back]].
* HumanShield[=/=]PutDownYourGunAndStepAway: Subverted in one of the better scenes:
--> '''Pluto:''' Alright, put the guns down! Unless you wanna try and shoot around your friend here!
--> '''Mook:''' Easier to shoot ''[[ShootTheHostage through]]'' him.
--> '''Pluto and his human shield:''' (variations on a theme of "OhCrap!")
* LargeHam: Bruno in particular, but most of the cast seem to be aware it was a pretty mediocre film and just have as much fun with the role as possible.
* RaygunGothic: The general art style.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Bruno and the FrenchMaid robot, the slot machine.
* ShockingSwerve: [[spoiler:That Rex Crater is a clone of Pluto, a twist that is barely foreshadowed and hastily explained with an AsYouKnow {{Exposition Dump}}.]]
* SpotTheImposter: The climax.
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: Found the perfect woman? Just have her cloned!
* UncleTomFoolery: Subverted. Pluto is a rare example of a character who used to fit that trope pretty well, but grew out of it. He's also the StraightMan.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Numerous characters, including Gino the Mobster and Pluto's business partner Miguel, are introduced only to suddenly disappear without explanation or acknowledgement from other characters. Part of this may have been due to the film's notoriously TroubledProduction.
