Don’t you dare open your mouth!
For someone who grew up watching R-rated action comedies, it is hard to accept that Eddie Murphy has moved to PG-13 movies. It is harder to accept that his new film, A Thousand Words features him talking only the said thousand words.
Murphy relies on visual gags such as weird facial expressions and obscene hand gestures to do the trick. But, that doesn’t help in bringing in humor. It was last year’s action comedy, Tower Heist that brought him back to the spotlight. Murphy got his groove on and the nation was talking about his comeback.
Sadly, A Thousand Words derails his journey.
Foot Note: A Thousand Words promises humor to a certain extent but, delivers below that.
