Editorial Reviews

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!”

"My name is Jack McCall. I'd like to talk to you, but I can't because if I say just one more sentence out loud, I'll die." Jack McCall (Murphy) works for a publishing firm and will do and say anything to close a deal. When he goes after the most sought after author, spiritual guru Dr. Sinja, he once again says anything that will get him to say yes. The Dr. sees through him and when Jack is at home that night he is shocked to see a tree pop out of the ground. After finding out that the tree loses a leaf every time Jack says a word he is forced to try and change the way he communicates. I have always been a big Eddie Murphy fan and I was looking forward to this one. I was surprised at how heartfelt and emotional this movie turned out to be. While this is a definite comedy and is very funny the real heart of the movie is the emotion that Murphy shows during his change. On that note, while I'm not saying this is an Oscar worthy performance this is his best acting since "Dreamgirls". Seems like just because it is a comedy the acting gets overlooked which isn't really fair. Murphy's performance was so perfect for this movie it took a movie that could have been very cheesy and fluffy and turned it into something so heartfelt and emotional that I actually got choked up a few times. For that to happen during a comedy is a testament to his acting. Overall, a very funny movie with a ton of heart that deserves to be seen. I really liked this one. I give it an A.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eddie Murphy was... good! WHO KNEW! June 30, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am not eloquent or as well worded as many.
The thoughts and depth of the movie may be the definition of cliche, but it was good.
I mean surprisingly, it was good!

The movie touched on the comedic side at times, coming across as not hard to navigate. Meaning I saw parts coming.
The end was gratifying, the middle pretty good. The beginning was a little slow or rather a little predictable, but not bad.

I liked it, which shocks me more than you know.

In the end, reading the reviews from other users spoiled a little bit of the movies path, but I recommend this movie. It is about 3.5 to 4 stars, and had a good message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie for All Ages June 23, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Eddie Murphy was once one of the funniest actors in hollywood, but thing have changed. This movie will not win any awards, but is a good family movie to watch, that was much better than expected.

Seriously worth watching! My husband, myself and our 10,12,15, and 16 year old sons enjoyed this movie...hard to find something everyone agrees on! We all agreed very good movie. Great story...great moral lesson...if you want smut...and vulgar humor...not for you...if you want a funny warm fuzzy movie...rent it.

3.0 out of 5 stars These Words July 8, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I really enjoyed the overall message of this movie.. There were moments I laughed out loud - but there were times I felt the storyline/plot went South - but at the end everything came together. I love they casted Ruby Dee as Eddie Murphy's mom. Ruby Dee showed us that no matter what the script offers - when you are blessed with talent - you can make anything shine.

3.5 Stars

4.0 out of 5 stars CLEAN & FUNNY - NOT RAW July 3, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Okay, so I enjoyed Eddie Murphy's Raw, but I enjoyed this too. Eddie Murphy has come a long way, and I feel that his movies provide reliable entertainment value, especially now when the bathroom humor has left me with my youth.
This movie has a good story, and it wrapped up nicely in a laughter invoking package through to the end.
I watched while laughing with my girlfriend, and enjoyed a good neutral movie (chick-flick v. man-show).
I recommend it for a friday night when there's no plans for going out.

5.0 out of 5 stars It took me by surprise! June 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The movie was really good. It totally took me by surprise. Eddie Murphy was the perfect pick for this movie. It was a heartfelt memory over true happiness and inner peace. I enjoyed it. It reminds me of the movie "Click" quite frankly but was still a one of a kind movie.I forgot to mention that I almost died laughing so hard!

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful...a must see June 26, 2012
Format:DVD
Unlike Leod's review, you are glad Eddie Murphy didn't do a movie that leaves you with sex, cursing, crude, rude and uneeded filth. What you walk away with is a profound message...do you have your priorities in life right, are you losing life because of the choices you make....but never seem to find an answer...so your life is leaving you unsatisfied.
