A Thousand Words

1

Eddie Murphy learns the consequences of enhancing the truth.

There’s a tree of life in Eddie Murphy’s latest that sheds a leaf with every word his garrulous literary agent utters.

And, as in Malick’s film, there’s an unconvincing dinosaur too: Eddie, attempting to recreate a long-extinct comedic heyday in a titter-free vehicle whose only interest lies in seeing what happens when he runs out of foliage.

Allison Janney and Kerry Washington suffer serial indignities as Murphy’s boss and wife respectively. Then again, what else were they expecting from the geniuses behind Norbit?
