That's it. I have seen all the movies starring Eddy Murphy. It is in fact rather surprising since I have never been a huge fan but, somehow, all his movie were broadcasted at least once on one of the Dutch channels I have. So, in the last 10 years, one by one, I have seen them all for free whenever they were passing by. Eventually , this last feature was again another rather pathetic comedy, a re... read more

“That's it. I have seen all the movies starring Eddy Murphy.

So, in the last 10 years, one by one, I have seen them all for free whenever they were passing by. Eventually , this last feature was again another rather pathetic comedy, a really typical example of what Eddy Murphy has been doing in the last 15 years. Indeed, it was based on a really weak concept similar to 'Liar Liar' or 'Yes Man' and either you have to provide some hilarious jokes (which was the case with 'Liar Liar') or you have to provide some interesting characters but there was nothing funny or interesting here.

Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (200 movies items)

"0% Consensus: Dated jokes (A Thousand Words was shot in 2008)and removing Eddie Murphy's voice-his greatest comedic asset- dooms this painful mess from the start."

2012- Best to Worst (69 movies items)

"Most of Eddie Murphy's new movies are ones that suck and this is no exception. Most of the jokes in the movie aren't funny. There are maybe 2 or 3 mildly funny parts, but most of this was painfully stupid. It also tried to do what The Truman Show did to Jim Carrey by adding drama to the movie, but it just doesn't work."

"This movie was a waste of three things: time, talent, and potential. This, to me, doesn't seem like that bad of a premise. But, I felt that the approach was juvenile, cliche and unfunny. The movie also portrays every character as if they were from another planet. No person talks and behaves as stupidly as these characters do. I mentioned a waste of talent and it is obvious that I'm referring to Eddie Murphy. As everyone knows Eddie Murphy is an unbelieveably talented comedic actor whose major ar"
