About Movie: A Thousand Words is a 2012 comedy-drama film. Eddie Murphy is Jack McCall, a fast-talking literary agent, who can close any deal, any time, any way. He has set his sights on New Age guru Dr. Sinja (Cliff Curtis) for his own selfish purposes. But Dr. Sinja is on to him, and Jack’s life comes unglued after a magical Bodhi tree mysteriously appears in his backyard. With every word Jack speaks, a leaf falls from the tree and he realizes that when the last leaf falls, both he and the tree are toast. Words have never failed Jack McCall, but now he’s got to stop talking and conjure up some outrageous ways to communicate or he’s a goner.
Movie Review:- A Thousand Words stars Murphy as Jack McCall, a selfish, manically verbose literary agent whose incessant type-A striving leaves little time for the consideration of others. He neglects his wife and infant son, browbeats his overtaxed assistant , and regularly bends the truth to suit his needs. In short, he’s in desperate need of the kind of high-concept comic comeuppance that only the most trite and derivative script can provide. Thankfully, screenwriter Steve Koren is more than up to the task. (He’s also responsible for Jack and Jill, Adam Sandler’s most recent cinematic insult.
Direction, Dialogues and Music:- Murphy's character is a variation on the tetchy monster (arrogant, egotistical, a disinterested family man) Sandler favors in his comedies.
Overall:- A Thousand Words marks yet another lazy, “family-friendly” comedy.
