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.
A pet-peeve of mine was the dumb Starbuck's Batista being a huge Beatles fan but even this becomes part of the emotional element of this movie when Jack McCall, who is normally 100% self-absorbed and not able to see a foot ahead of his own hide, is moved to find and buy an original pressing of the White Album on vinyl - possibly a pretty penny. For McCall, this would be akin to "Hell freezing over". As the few remaining leaves fall away, Jack is coming to value what he never gave as much a parting glance prior to the "curse".Read more ›
"Don't talk for three days. How hard could it be?" Jack had to come up with ways to communicate in person and on the phone without words. Eddie Murphy is very good at using facial expressions and other body language to get points across. I don't think he was as funny as I've known him to be, though. There were parts that made me laugh a bit, but there were also parts I'm sure were supposed to be funny but didn't make me laugh. Everything that had to do with Jack's family life - those were the scenes (except the one in the hotel room) I liked best. Clark Duke did a good job; I liked his character best. And Murphy's performance near the end really touched me. I'd love to see him in more dramatic roles.
When I saw the movie trailer a while back, my first thought was 'this movie has a New Age theme', but that didn't keep me from checking it out because as a Christian I know what I believe; not every movie I watch is Christian-based.
Death - we all know it's going to happen one day, but many take life and other people for granted. A Thousand Words wasn't as entertaining as I thought it'd be, but this film gives viewers a few things to think about.
