From what I can gather the film sees Murphy’s character, a compulsive liar; get his comeuppance when he messes with the wrong person. After lying to a spiritual guru, he obtains a literal tree that controls the amount of words he can speak. As random as that sounds, it is definitely expected from a Murphy comedy.
However, hasn’t Murphy had his day? Personally, I find all the gags and jokes made in this film have already been done before. Tower Heist that was released last year flopped majorly for Murphy and what will stop this film flopping at the box office too? But maybe Murphy will regain all with A Thousand Words!
The collage film poster does entice me to possibly consider watching this film. But what do you think?
