89: "The KGB Are Really Sloppy At Staging Suicides" - Best Defense (1984)

We finally got to Eddie Murphy and we're discussing a god damn mess of a movie.  From 1984, it's 'Best Defense' starring Dudley Moore and 'strategic guest star' Eddie Murphy.  If you don't know the story of this movie, it was completely filmed with Dudley Moore and then screenings went so poorly that they filmed a subplot starring Eddie Murphy.  They share no screen time in the film and their story lines take place 2 years apart.  Dudley Moore plays an engineer, who seems to know nothing about engineering, that works at a company making tank parts for the military.  Eddie Murphy stars, in a parallel universe, as a soldier in the finished tank who accidentally finds himself in the middle of the Iraq invasion of Kuwait.  Eerily, Iraq invaded Kuwait six years after this movie came out.  What a bizarrely absurd movie.  And just for clarification, I found out after we recorded that this was directed by the same man who directed 'Howard The Duck' and I'm ashamed that I didn't know that trivia earlier.
