PLOT

Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy), a fast-talking literary agent, makes book deals by gabbing. He also exaggerates the truth for making deals. This comes to an end when he closes a deal with self-help guru named Dr. Sinja (Cliff Curtis).

One day, he finds a Bodhi tree in his backyard and realizes that his life depends on the tree. Hence, with every leaf that falls from the tree, Jack becomes closer to death. He now seeks help from Dr. Sinja, who knows of his deceit. Dr. Sinja alerts him by telling that he has a thousand words with him.

Thus, Jack must choose his words carefully when he speaks and also when he writes. A turn of events takes place when his wife Caroline McCall ( Kerry Washington Kerry Washington is a Hollywood actress, recognize >> Read More... ) leaves him, and he loses his job. Thus, Jack has to mend his relationships with only a thousand words to live.

ANALYSIS

Featuring Eddie Murphy could have been the best choice only if his voice- his main comedic asset was not removed.

STAR PERFORMANCES

Eddie Murphy’s performance seemed so disingenuous and forced that even his acting did not uplift the mood of the audiences. In fact, the movie faced severe negative reviews such that Eddie Murphy was nominated as the worst actor for the movie. The movie curtailed his star abilities as a physical comedian. Clark Duke Clark Duke is an actor, director, and producer. He >> Read More... (Jack’s assistant) fairly played his part.

WHAT’S THERE?

Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy) slightly uplifted the mood of the audiences (that is, whenever he was allowed to speak!).

WHAT’S NOT THERE?

Eddie Murphy’s main talent is as he has to keep shut in the movie.

Predictable Conclusion.

Unoriginal concept.

Everything in the movie looked tired and recycled.

VERDICT

This movie can be watched only if you have a lot of time and have nothing else to do.
