Rating: 2/10 -- A thousand words? Try two words: stay away. Murphy does a pretty good job keeping up with the various indignities heaped on him but the movie as a whole ends up sinking. Full Review

Eddie Murphy should have just said the word "No" to this tired, formulaic comedy. Full Review

Does Eddie Murphy actually have any range, or is it just an illusion created by a few early edgy roles and, later, a lot of CGI makeup and fat suits? Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The high concept breeds lowbrow gags. Full Review
Time Out
Mar 9, 2012
Rating: C- -- A disastrous comedy at times, with a few unexpected touching moments sprinkled throughout, A Thousand Words fails to come together like it should, and becomes a forgettable mess. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/5 -- The rest of the film is the kind that'll either put you to sleep or have you cringing over the fact that Murphy, one of the biggest names in comedy, has been reduced to doing this. Full Review
Sep 28, 2017
Follows directly in the footsteps of Bruce Almighty, Click, Liar Liar, Groundhog Day and any other post-Freaky Friday high-concept redemption story that inevitably crossed Tim Allen and Adam Sandler's desks at some point. Full Review
Mar 9, 2012
Rating: 1/5 -- a poorly conceived and startlingly miscast comedy that works to every one of its stars' weaknesses. Full Review

Product Description:

NORBIT director Brian Robbins re-teams with that film's star, Eddie Murphy, for this comedy about a smooth-talking man who discovers that he has only 1,000 words left to speak before dying.
