Eddie Murphy is Jack McCall, a fast-talking literary agent, who can close any deal, any time, any way. He has set his sights on New Age guru Dr. Sinja (Cliff Curtis) for his own selfish purposes. But Dr. Sinja is on to him, and Jack’s life comes unglued after a magical Bodhi tree mysteriously appears in his backyard. With every word Jack speaks, a leaf falls from the tree and he realizes that when the last leaf falls, both he and the tree are toast. Words have never failed Jack McCall, but now he’s got to stop talking and conjure up some outrageous ways to communicate or he’s a goner.
A THOUSAND WORDS…I had this movie on my DVR for the longest time and I finally decided to watch it. Now, I’m a huge fan of Eddie Murphy…the OLD Eddie Murphy movies though…oh and SHREK. I wasn’t sure how this PG-13 Eddie would be and I gotta say. I liked this one. Cool little story – it’s got comedy AND…you get to see the sexy, HOT Kerry Washington in a sexy, HOT outfit. That right there should make ya wanna see it – – AHHH…if you’re into that kind of stuff. (lol)
All kidding aside – there’s a moral at the end of this comedy.
I give A THOUSAND WORDS… 3 out of 5 popcorns!
