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.

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.

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.

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

I just RedBoxed this movie on the strength of the previews and at first it was not looking like it was going to be very good. No I did not feel like I was going to turn it off but I was not getting very amused either. Some of what was supposed to be funny amounted more to Murphy's character making a fool of himself in a way that made my viewing experience awkward. I actually felt embarrassed for the character. There were some funny parts but the movie takes a turn into some very emotional tear-jerking territory that overshadows the comedy element. Another reviewer compares this movie to Adam Saddler's "Click" effectively beating me to that comparison. With a little editing, this film could easily be made into a Family Movie as it explores the elements of "finding oneself" and finding what really matters before it's too late - not necessarily actual death but losing out on what really matters but yet is taken for granted until it's gone, you know, the ages old "You never know what you have until it's gone".

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".

A thousand Words was *barely* a three star film. The story behind this movie was a little
far fetched. Eddie Murphy can only say a Thousand Words or he dies. Yes indeed there
is the usual far-fetched comedy that has been done a *thousand* time before. I just
barely could get into this movie. Eddie Murphy does a good job at being a comedian but
in this movie there are so many references to sex (the usual crude jokes) that I can only
give this movie *3* stars. Fyi - all the critics hated this movie.
