Yesterday I watched the new Eddie Murphy movie, “A Thousand Words.” In this comedy Eddie plays Jack McCall, a represantative of a mayor publishing house who has to sign the hottest person out there, who happens to be a spiritual guru. Jack is known for his talkative mouth and when he talks too much, just to get the guru to sign with his publisher, he finds a bodhi tree in his own backyard. Now Jack only gets a thousand words and needs to find himself again before all the leaves fall down and the tree dies.
This is the first movie where Eddie Murphy is playing the lead since …….Imagine That. His movie before this one was the Ben Stiller movie, Tower Heist.
What I like about this movie is that Eddie shows a lot of comedic genuisness when it comes to acting with only using body language. It is said that acting comes more to its right when there is little dialogue. Well, having dialogue and having to use only body language worked perfectly in this film. I haven’t laughed so hard since I saw Meet Dave.
Eddie Murphy really hasn’t lost his touch and I hope he will come back to do a one-man show! You should all go and watch this movie.
