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!" Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In the simplicity of its premise it embodies the notion of high-concept entertainment. In its execution it demonstrates how technical efficiency can drain the life from a story.
Rotten: It makes you want to see Murphy team up with Judd Apatow, or even take on a dead-serious dramatic role - do anything but star in another movie like this one.
Rotten: The concept is unoriginal, the scenarios aren't funny, and its message is banal. Plus, Murphy alternately hams it up and phones it in.
Rotten: Even Murphy's largely wordless, physically adroit performance can't redeem this tortured exercise in high-concept spiritualist hokum.
It wasn't so bad 0 is alittle harsh
I enjoyed this film it was different and unique and entertaining some people may disagree on this movie but it was a new kind of concept
Great movie. Funny and the kids loved it.
It does have a point
Although I did see this at a friends house and it was for free, seeing it at the movies doesn't seem to be worth it. It is a stupid movie and the acting is wonky but if you can stand the whole movie you'll see there is a moral at the end, so MAYBE take a look at it :)
