Guys of the 90s - Round One: Eddie Murphy (2) vs Kevin Costner (7)

In probably the only matchup I disagree with so far, Patrick Swayze came out on top of RDJ.  But that's my own bias, and not a comment on Swayze's serious icon status.  Today's match up feels a bit off, but I'll let the voters take a crack at it.

Eddie Murphy - 90s Hightlights: Boomerang, The Nutty Professor, Doctor Dolittle

Kevin Costner - 90s Highlights: Dances with Wolves, The Bodyguard, Waterworld

How can one overlook the power of Waterworld? Regardless, I went Murphy.

Waterworld! I think that's the last Kevin Costner movie I saw. I was a very devoted fan before that, especially The Untouchables.

Prince of Thieves wasn't in the 90s? How can that not be a highlight?! :)

The seeding seems backwards on this one, or at least like it should be a 4-5. Murphy was a good looking man, but his best days were behind him once 1990 rolled around, despite the box office success he might have had later on. Meanwhile, loathed as he might now be, Costner was the shit during the 90s, and could do not wrong...well, up until that flick Nick mentioned.

He would have gotten my vote.
