Movie Reviews

  • you have to spend the rest of the movie watching Murphy play charades
    2 of 5 by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic ]
  • this one does, until it runs out of ideas and forgets whether it's a comedy or a drama
    2 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • this film is squarely in the quality league of those four gems, although its product placement is so galling you wait for the punch line
    1 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • the rest of the film amounts to a feature-length game of charades
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • the concept is unoriginal, the scenarios aren't funny, and its message is banal
    1.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • that none of Murphy's frantic poses are funny is a problem, but then, neither were Jim Carrey's forced-truth outbursts in the similar "Liar, Liar"
    2 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Times ]
  • it's a ready-made blueprint for mediocrity that brings new meaning to "That goes without saying" and is perhaps better left without having actually been seen
    Review rate : D by William Goss [Film.com ]
  • It makes you want to see Murphy team up with Judd Apatow, or even take on a deadly serious dramatic role - do anything but star in another movie like this one
    Review rate : D- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • it makes such questions unnecessary, even for the most addled audience members
    Review rate : D by Tasha Robinson [AV Club ]
  • inoffensive, unsurprising and uninspiring
    1 of 5 by Andy Webster [New York Times ]
  • in a most obvious way, then, the movie's central gimmick is unnecessary
    1 of 4 by Mark Dujsik [Mark Reviews Movies ]
  • for a comedy about the quest for inner peace, A Thousand Words reeks of desperation
    1 of 4 by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail ]
  • felt sorry for the actor while watching him mug and grunt and make googly eyes, only to be greeted by the sound of crickets chirping
    1 of 4 by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald ]
  • doesn’t manage to exploit the absurd premise with any discernible wit or invention, and the star is left floundering
    by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • but Murphy doesn't need any more movies like this, if he's ever going to really revive his career
    2 of 5 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • a rip-off of another movie
    1 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
