About this movie

Fast-talking Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy) says whatever it takes to close a deal. But after stretching the truth with a spiritual guru, he suddenly finds his life depending on a magical tree with 1,000 leaves...one for every word he has left. Now Jack's got to stop talking and conjure up some outrageous ways to communicate or he's a goner. See why A Thousand Words is the hilarious, feel-good comedy that has it all: "great cast, great laughs [and a] great time!"

Regardless of what the other nay sayers tout in their reviews this is a great movie which relays a simple yet powerful message to one of life's important lessons. If you are a fan of movies like Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty you will appreciate this movie for what it has to offer. To the reviewers who felt Eddie Murphy was reduced, and not worthy of this movie. I believe he did a great job in being funny while keeping his mouth shut. Stay positive people. Life's too short.

This is a clear sign that the ratings on these literally dont mean anything, they should really composite the 300 psychos that gave this 5 stars with the critical reception which was famously horrendous. At the time this came out it was considered the worst movie ever made and a complete comercial failure and it's sitting pretty at 4 STARS. Literally insane

IMO, this was just a horrible movie. Its just more of the same Eddie Murphy. I think his refusal to change over the years has really hurt his fan base. I have absolutely no desire to watch this movie again.
