THE G.I. JOE WITH THE KUNG-FU GRIP: Eddie Murphy has announced that he will stop making movies once he turns 50, hopefully having worked with Scorsese and/or Spielberg and/or made Beverly Hills Cop IV by that point, and then return to standup comedy.
For now, I'll take this pledge as seriously as R.E.M.'s promise to break up on December 31, 1999 (among other broken promises), or "read my lips: no new taxes". But if he follows through, this is good, right?
