  SCREEN IT! PARENTAL REVIEW: THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH
Pluto pours some champagne for himself and Dina (with a video chauffeur stating in disbelief that he's going to get her drunk and have his way with her), but she's fallen asleep when he returns with it.
Pluto's partner has Dina take a tray with liquor on it up to Pluto and she asks if this is the sort of "send up the new girl" type of thing and that adds that she doesn't do that sort of thing (but the guy says there's no need to worry).
Pluto then states that the French maid robot is an "excellent piece of...software." We later see her sitting on Bruno's lap and then part of her outfit is sucked off during a decompression moment where she's "floating" horizontally while holding onto a bar (but we don't see anything explicit).

 Film Quips | THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH
While Pluto Nash, a futuristic comedy about a night club owner on the moon, is reasonably diverting and full of interesting visual effects (reportedly part of the reason for its delay), it's not going to do that.
When Pluto declines, he winds up on the receiving end of an after-hours bombing (which, surprisingly, does not cause a decompression), and although he, his new waitress Dina (Dawson) and his faithful but outdated robot Bruno (Quaid) are not injured, the club is a total loss.
Pluto soon finds, however, that it is not his livelihood but his life that is in danger, as the goons return and attempt to rub him out.

 DVD Review: Adventures of Pluto Nash
"The Adventures of Pluto Nash" is a $100 million dollar picture that was originally completed a couple of years ago, but then it got comfortable on the shelf.
Although the first half of "Pluto Nash" was carried by my fascination of how anyone would find this material worthy of filming (or putting $100 million towards, no less), the film became dull to the point where I wished I had my 95 minutes back.
SOUND: "Adventures of Pluto Nash" is presented by Warner Brothers in Dolby Digital 5.1.

 Orbital Reviews: The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy) is an ex-smuggler who owns a nightclub on the moon in 2080, a time when the moon is already well populated, but full of mob activity.
When Nash refuses to sell his club to the mafia, he quickly becomes a target and has to flee his club along with bodyguard Bruno (Randy Quaid) and new waitress Dina Lake (Rosario Dawson), which begins the adventures of Pluto Nash.
Reviewed purely as a comedy, Pluto Nash would not fare as well, but much like Steve Martin's recent film Novocaine (2001), the mere presence of a comedic talent does not mean the movie is supposed to be reviewed purely as a comedy.

Rosario Dawson and Eddie Murphy in 'The Adventures of Pluto Nash'
“The Adventures of Pluto Nash” — which lives in a sorry part of the universe populated by gangsters, robots and depressing architecture — is a fl hole for anything funny.

 The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002) - A Review by David Nusair
The Adventures of Pluto Nash, after being delayed for more than a year, finally hits theaters accompanied by the kind of buzz that virtually assures it a disastrous run.
Along with a just-hired waitress (Rosario Dawson) and his trusty robot bodyguard (Randy Quaid), Nash is forced to go on the run after his establishment is bombed by a nefarious thug who wants the land.
The remainder of the film essentially follows Nash's attempts to discover the identity of the bomber, while evading the variety of pursuers sent to kill him.

 Lee's Movie Info - "Pluto Nash" by Ammar S.
Nash was not even screened for critics, which is never a good sign for a film.
Warner Bros. was also fairly insecure of Pluto Nash’s quality, as they delayed it for over two years, gave it a moderately low screen count of 2320 and dumped the film near the end of the summer season.
The Adventures of Pluto Nash opened to half of 1998’s Holy Man, which debuted with a mediocre $5.1 million from 2013 theaters, finishing with a disappointing $12 million and becoming Eddie Murphy’s biggest box office plunder at the time.

I have to admire "Pluto Nash" for taking a chance with an original concept but the film needed a stronger script that needed to decide if in fact it was a full-blown sci-fi comedy like "Spaceballs" or a campy sci-fi adventure flick like maybe "Ice Pirates".

 Eye Weekly - The Adventures of Pluto Nash - 08.15.02
The Adventures of Pluto Nash, which cost a lot of money and went unreleased upon its completion two years ago, is not a bad film, merely mediocre in every respect.
One such impresario is Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy), a slippery con artist who goes straight from jail to managing the Moon’s most happening nightclub, doing a more legit job of it than many of his contemporaries.
It doesn’t help that the romantic subplot, involving a pretty young singer (Rosario Dawson) who needs a job at Pluto’s club to pay her way back to Earth, is so generic as to provoke unintentional laughter.

 The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002) - Ninth Symphony Films Review
Delayed from release for about a year and a half, The Adventures of Pluto Nash is a film that can only be called strange.
A mix between a mob comedy and a science fiction film, Nash is a film that has a lot of flaws and its easy to discern why Warner Bros. kept this one off the table for so long.
The story constructed to run during Pluto Nash is something that is quite ordinary and it just doesn't mesh well with a science fiction story.

 The Adventures of Pluto Nash : filmcritic.com Movie Review
As it starts, Pluto has been out of prison a week, already saving the lives of Polish accordion players in kilts, negotiating bookies into lending him millions of dollars, and turning the worst bar on the moon into the satellite’s hottest nightclub.
Pluto Nash is perhaps one of the most boring comedies I’ve ever seen, with the possible exception of some of the later work of Pauly Shore.
Pluto Nash annoyed me. Every single twist in Pluto Nash has been done a million times before, and some of its jokes get so old, so fast, you want to guzzle your Pepsi for an excuse to leave the theatre for a minute or two.

Pluto has just gotten out of prison and finds his friend, who runs a local bar (and runs it badly), in trouble with some "loan sharks" who loaned him the money (of he's never paid a cent back) to buy his place.
As one example, Pluto claimed only been to Earth once and thought the "air smelled funny." That makes sense to me, as I would imagine many people who moved to the moon did so to escape the pollution on Earth.
Pluto said the only thing he did like about his visit to Earth was that he could see the moon in the sky at night...

 KINNOPIO - The Adventures of Pluto Nash
The movie opens in the year 2087, as former lowlife Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy) attempts to put his smuggling days behind him and starts running the most successful nightclub on the moon -- now known as Little America.
Nash refuses at first, but that only sets him on the run from Rex’s henchman as they blow up his club.
As with any man on a mission, Pluto Nash needs a theme song, and with Powell’s experience on Shrek and Evolution, he knew how to invoke an upbeat tune that would get anyone ready to take on the world.

 Jimmy O's Review of The Adventures of Pluto Nash
This is a staggering number when ones considers that the budget for the film was $90 million and, despite the fact that its release was prolonged almost a full year, had a significant marketing push.
Pluto Nash plays like one of those films within a film where a bunch of big egos have committed to making an awful movie (whether unintentional or not) and the rest of the story revolves around this internal movie blowing up on itself.
Nash, obviously not a fan of Italians OR Native Americans, is very anti-casino and has to go through this big hour long chase to catch Joe Pantilioni and his Alien Nation-reject henchman after they blow up his prime piece of property.

 The Adventures of Pluto Nash
The Adventures of Pluto Nash, staring Eddie Murphy, is nothing more than an adventure in futility.
The film is about Pluto Nash (Eddie Murphy) and his attempt to run a legit dance club on the moon after being released from jail on smuggling charges.
This film should probably been more aptly named The Adventures of Pluto Trash as it is not funny, the special effects are horrible, the script is nonexistent and the characters as one dimensional as cardboard cutouts.

 The Adventures of Pluto Nash film review
This is where Nash comes in as the opening sequence sees him inherit a squalid club owned by his singer friend Tony Francis (Jay Mohr).
Fast forward to seven years later and Pluto's is the hottest club in town until a ruthless underworld tycoon threatens to blow him out of the stratosphere unless he sells up.
Pluto Nash will become known as one of Hollywood's strangest offerings of the decade (an out-and-out comedy without laughs), but even that isn't enough to warrant spending the ticket price on it.

 The Aisle Seat - The Adventures of Pluto Nash
Pluto Nash seems forced in this respect, like someone randomly made this stuff up without really thinking it through to see if it was funny.
However, I do want to make it clear that The Adventures of Pluto Nash had its moments for me. The special effects showing a futuristic moon colony are fun, and the A-list cast is hard to dislike.
The Adventures of Pluto Nash is rated PG-13 for violence, sexual humor and language.
