    Lol, I never was too good at charades so I don’t know what I’d do if I only had 1,000 words left to say. This movie looks pretty entertaining though and Eddie Murphy is a favorite actor of mine. I know a few co-workers of mine at Dish said this movie was pretty good and had a meaning to it. I went and ordered it on Blockbuster @Home in Blu-ray so I should be getting it in the mail soon. I’ll let you know how I liked it.

    Alas, it is the type of movie that can really sell itself in the trailer since you are only catching snippets of what seems to be a higher concept for a comedy. But a 60 second commercial of Murphy mugging is a lot easier to swallow than 90 minutes.
    That, and Eddie is known for his talking…his comedy is rooted in his wordplay and manner of speech. Taking that away and he’s suddenly competing in a new realm of physical comedy. Rowan Atkinson can last 2 films and a whole mess of Mr. Bean episodes with less than a 1000 words but Mr. Murphy is just not cut out for this.

    But to each their own. If you gets some chuckles from it, more power to you. I’d love to hear what your reaction was after seeing it.

    I don’t mean to be the blast from the past, but if you all missed “Holy Man” with Eddie Murphy, you have to check it out. Source: “Holy Man” with Eddie Murphy
