I can understand why this movie received such a low rating from the overall
IMDB audience. There is probably a large segment of voters who expect
certain things from an Eddie Murphy movie who were disappointed. Murphy is
best known for action comedies in the vein of 48 Hrs. and Beverly Hills Cop.
He also did some fine work in Trading Places, a straight up, but darkly
Holy Man is a gentle, feel-good comedy. It provides some laugh-out-loud
moments, but for the most part, weaves a compassionate story in an
appropriately low-key style. Its message is clear and timely: Stop and smell
the roses, people. You are losing sight of what's important.
Eddie Murphy is letter perfect as "G," the "holy man" who encounters Jeff
Goldblum while Jeff is changing the tire on his Jaguar. With Goldblum is
Kelly Preston, his colleague at the Good Buy Home Shopping Network. `G'
appears mysteriously in flowing white robes, and talks of being on a
spiritual pilgrimage. Goldblum, ever cynical, dismisses `G' as a wacko, and
tries his best to get rid of him. Preston, on the other hand, sees something
different in `G.' She is more open to his charisma, his humor, and his
apparent lack of guile.
The three end up working together. `G' is given his own TV show where his
blend of honesty, spirituality, and humor helps the station move a lot of
products, and turns `G' into an overnight media sensation. I won't give away
much more than that.
Not to be overlooked, Robert Loggia turns in a chilling performance as the
venomous TV station owner--it's as if he was channeling Barry Diller all the
way. His crass, mercenary tactics trigger a crisis of conscience that brings
the movie to its resolution.
Holy Man tells a simple tale that echoes an ancient proverb: When the pupil
is ready, the teacher arises. I have watched Holy Man about three or four
times. There are nuances here that I have discovered only after repeated
viewings. The film's acting, music, location, and subtle direction all hang
together well, providing a much-needed palliative to Hollywood's desperate
output of increasingly frenetic and assaulting films
