Eddie Murphy, whose next film "Meet Dave" hits theaters next week, hinted in an interview with "Extra" that he might quit making movies to return to his roots.

“I have close to 50 movies and it's like, 'why am I in the movies?'” he told Extra. “I've done that part now. I'll go back to the stage and do stand-up.”

So, those of you who were looking forward to "Beverly Hills Cop 4"--and how could you after seeing the mess that "BHC 3" was--might have to plop down even more money than the $12 it takes to see Murphy on the big screen if he decides to play comedy clubs and big arenas around the world in the near future. Besides, some folks think that Murphy's last good movie--before he started dabbling in family fare comedies like "Shrek," "Dr. Doolittle" and "The Nutty Professor" was "Boomerang."

I tend to disagree, however. That mockumentary he made with  Tracey Edmonds was pretty entertaining.

But what do you think? What was your favorite Murphy movie? Should the 47-year-old New York native call it a career and move on?
