What the hell happened to Eddie Murphy?! At one stage the foul-mouthed comedian was arguably the funniest man on the planet, capable of sending an entire cinema into gut busting bouts of laughter with just a single perfectly timed expletive. But ever since he underwent his family-friendly Disneyfication, he has been churning out nothing but criminally unfunny stinkers.
And his latest, A Thousand Words, doesn’t seem to be breaking that trend.
This film is being written by the same guy who did Adam Sandler’s Jack and Jill – widely considered to be the worst film of 2011 – and is being directed by Brian Robbins, the same
torturer man behind the camera on Murphy’s other crimes against humanity, Meet Dave and Norbit.
So in honour of the film’s central idea as well as Murphy’s classic repertoire, I will now summarize my opinion of this film in as few words as possible:
F@&K THAT S#%T!
