1.0 out of 5 stars It's The Feel Bad Movie Of The Year! Oct. 25 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Dustin Hoffman in "Rain Man," Tom Hanks in "Forrest Gump" and Russell Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" brilliantly portrayed mentally challenged characters, and each film won the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture. In this movie, Jim Belushi plays Homer, a mildly retarded man. He is portrayed as a pathetic caricature, not as a realistic character. Whoopie Goldberg plays Eddie, a patient that escaped from a mental institution, who is dying from an inoperable brain tumor. Spouting profanities and shooting clerks dead in a series of robberies, Eddie is one of the most unlikable characters ever created. Most disappointing of all, blonde bombshell Angelyne is only seen in a cameo lasting a few seconds. Jim Belushi and Whoopie Goldberg have no chemistry together, and their characters are too mismatched to make their growing friendship believable. This movie fails to create an emotional bond between the viewer and the characters. When Eddie is shot dead, the only thing I felt was relief, because I knew this film was finally coming to an end. "Homer And Eddie" should have won the Razzie Award for Worst Motion Picture Of The Year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant tragedy and humour Feb. 5 2009
Format:VHS Tape
Unfortunately, viewers probably expected a comedy given the stars and the premise - and got a very European drama. One of Whoopi Goldberg's masterpiece roles, brilliant navigation by the director between tragedy and heart-touching humour make this a movie to see - you will either hate it, or you will love it, no third option.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEVER FORGOTTEN Feb. 26 2006
By VarietyIsthespiceofLife - Published on Amazon.com
I still remember this movie after all theses years, and I believed I have only seen this once or twice. It was shown in the best atmosphere...I was up 2 AM or so, and everything is just so quiet at that time. I felt every emotion of this film thoroughly. This movie is one of those gems, and I'm not suprised, because the 80's produced several memorable movies for me. This movie deals with longing, hopefulness, virginity, and some fun. I used to try to look for this movie from time to time, and had forgotten the title. I was irritated , because I remembered the name Eddie, and everytime I'd look it up; the title; Eddie, that basketball movie w/ Whoop would show up, and I'm like NOoooo!!! Well I will continue my search for a dvd, and if not I'll just order the VHS, there is still many good movies which haven't made the switch: The Dummy (starring Levar Burton), Leadbelly, and some others I'd really like to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's NOT a comedy movie ! July 3 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Don't get mistaken. It is NOT a comedy movie. Rather a road movie with a bitter taste to it. As Whoopie Goldberg plays a vagrant with a tumor in her head which is slowly killing her and Belushi plays a retard who's in search of his parents who have left him behind in hospital 14 years ago.
This is rather a drama and shows superior acting skills by both main characters. Definitely worth an oscar (but never nominated). So don't go thinking this is a family movie that you can watch during christmas eve !! It is NOT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homer and Eddie June 6 2012
By Eagle Eye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A wonderful movie with two great actors. This movie can make one laugh and cry. It is about two strangers that come to trust each other and become great friends. I have seen this movie numerious times and have never tired of seeing it. Both actors put on a brilliant show of talent.Homer and Eddie (The Lost Collection)

3.0 out of 5 stars No comedy that Nov. 14 2006
By Eolake - Published on Amazon.com
I saw this when it was first out, and I was shocked that it was billed as a comedy (like Nicolas Cage's The Weather Man also was last year), when it was nothing at all like a comedy. In fact it was a quite depressing movie. I suspect that those responsible for writing movie posters just don't bother to actually watch the movie, and just guess on the genre, based on the starring actors.

I love the actors, but I wasn't sold on the movie. It seemed to be missing something with such talent.
