An amazing blend of comedy, spiritual lesson to life and array of expressive acting style in the movie. Its for those who still love a comedy in its purest form of expression and meaning. you will be laughing for a reason and not at a poor joke or cuss word or bad vocabulary or sad sarcasm on some one as a character of the movie. highly recommend it to a more sober crowd with sense of maturity. Well directed and well performed by the entire cast and crew. A must watch for teens too.

Excellent Couldn't sum it up in A Thousand Words (by AngusYoung-434-84462)
The Movie had such deep meaning and for a movie to have that as well as comedy is remarkable. Eddie Murphy played a fantastic role recovering himself from previous films that weren't as successful. With a wonderful soundtrack and spiritual meaning the movie has changed the way I look at life, the song "Out Loud" played during the credits is a very meaningful song if you listen to the lyrics. Their are parts in the film where you want to laugh and others where you want to cry. Overall it was a fantastic film I give the film a 10/10. Enjoy the film Highly Recommended Go to the <more>

Just watch it its fun. But you will end up getting lot more out of it. That equals sixteen words : . I need to have at least 10 line to qualify this to be a review. : That's how much we are crazy about using words. I don't speak not just needed but lot more. Lot more loosing the essence of it and some time making a nonsense of it. The beauty of this movie is its making me weigh my every word. And not say a thing that's not needed. A movie with such a depth. Yet told in a simplest and most humorous way. You will get tears laughing and tears again knowing how beautiful life can be <more>
when i talk less and mean more. No movie is not at all heavy as this review.: That's more than 10 lines
What's Up With the Negative Reviews?? (by ShawnM84)
I cannot understand why someone would rate this so poorly and call it "an abomination" of a film. These people must like to watch depressing or utter brain dead movies, over heart warming, feel good movies.Granted this film is not perfect, there are definitely some unnecessary and quite stupid scenes, but this does not detract from the overall moral of the story which makes a powerful philosophical point - a point we must all contemplate.Eddie Murphy is his funny usual self and the rest of the cast do a great job. Also the cinematography is excellent with some remarkable scenes.I <more>
highly recommend this movie for anyone looking for a meaningful movie. A must watch for all who are positive.Peace.
Fantastic - DO NOT MISS THIS MOVIE! (by andrew782)
It goes without saying that Eddie Murph hasn't been at his best since Beverley Hills Cop. This movie changes that. Apart from a little of his over the top comedy, this is a real tear jerker. It is very much like Click in that it makes the viewer think about his life, how they treat others and just how much of our life is wasted. Well acted, well conceived and a great heart warming movie that men and women can enjoy. My wife loved it, I loved it. More like this please. Try not to pick a at little details of 'how' but enjoy the 'why' Great movie. 9/10 best movie i've <more>
seen this year! Bring tissues and popcorn, turn down the lights so the missus can't see the tears ;
Deeply Touching and Meaningful (by erick-327-863879)
I think it's time the truth is told. Eddie Murphy not talking for half of the movie or using words selectively perhaps was the exact point of the movie. Quiet within will reveal the truth, and in its own unique way the movie did express this. This movie is about inspiration NOT information, the truth this movie was pointing out was to dive in within, release pain from the past and bring out the love that we are. It's about letting go of the fake illusion to gain mastery of the universal Truth within us and share this Truth with everyone. Our family quiet enjoyed this movie; it was <more>
funny and deeply meaningful at the same time. A must see for all who are ready for it.
You will find reviews here using thousands of words in order to flame this movie, clearly they didn't understand it. You will know why after seeing it.People are disappointed because they wanted to see an Eddy Murphy style comedy, the problem is this ain't a comedy it is a drama with a very good message. I loved Eddy Murphy in his first movies, he was a fast talking joke machine, he still is but the jokes are the same and comedy has moved on. For that matter I didn't like the comedy portion of this movie too much but I was deeply touched by the drama version. The solution to his <more>
problem is right in front of him and anyone who is willing to give this movie a fair chance will see it too and exactly this is what made the movie so strong because he is doing it all wrong and you want to scream at the screen and tell him what to do and how to do it.In my opinion Eddy Murphy gave a partially brilliant performance. As I said I didn't enjoy the comedy too much, it was some sort of best of Eddy Murphy but when you are willing to accept that this is actually a drama and understand the comedy part as the metaphor that it is you will love this movie and maybe pull something valuable out of the message. For the concept of the message Eddy Murphy was the best possible actor for this role.
1,000 words to utter before you depart or about the life in its near end. (by Perfectionisbeauty)
Have you ever thought which words were the most important and quintessential in our life - "I love you", "Thank you", "Forgive me"? Did you count them? In fact, the words you transmit are so relevant that they are the key "to open the doors" in our life.Kahlil Gibran said that "all our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind."Emily Dickinson wrote: "A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day."Nathaniel Hawthorne stated that "words - so innocent and powerless as they <more>
are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become, in the hands of one who knows how to combine them". Winston Churchill was confident when saying "You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. Yet in their hearts there is unspoken - unspeakable! - fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse - a little tiny mouse! - of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic."At last I've watched this "A Thousand Words" with Eddie Murphy. I did like the idea. There's a powerful message in the last 15-20 minutes of the movie which is on the whole a combination of comedy, rather a farce of rude words and thoughtless actions in the first half, and a serious meditation over the sense of life and meaningful words in the second one. What was the conception? Suppose you get to know that every word you say can become the last one. So you think before it to what to say or be silent. One realizes that words are countable and can not be wasted. Only the words that are crucial and urgent ought to be uttered. The words you hadn't say yet. To your mother, family, people. And you shall say these words even if you know that every single word will near you to death. You regret you haven't done it when there was a plenty of time and now there is only a limit of words that shorten this time to zero as you are in Zeitnot. Perhaps Eddie Murphie wasn't that good in the movie, perhaps it would have been better to have Jim Carrey in it to continue his protagonist of "Liar, Liar" and "Yes-Man" hilarious in their form but thought-provoking in their matter movies. However, the movie is worth seeing. Lord Byron's 1788-1824 last word was "Goodnight".
A Thousand Words in less than 1000 Words, Better Than Expected (by This_Movie_Guy)
Think of the book called The Giving Tree, a book about a tree that gives and gives and asks nothing in return, mixed together with the movie Click, starring Adam Sandler with basically the same premise. Eddie Murphy finally ended up in a good movie for once. It was more of what he use to do, such as Coming to America. His performance was great. Being able to act a part out without words or noises, but still show expressions and have people care or laugh is pure talent. Clark Duke, what can you say about him? Seems to play the same part in every movie, a moronic but caring sidekick. Cliff <more>
Curtis was actually pretty good in the part he played. With Murphy's past with movies, this has been a step up in the right direction. I am hoping this gets his career back on track. While the movie was very short, any longer it might not have been that good and there were no open ends or unanswered questions left at the end. A great movie to sit through, though probably not more than twice unless it ends up on TV and there is nothing else on. I do have to say, this was better than expected! The storyline was simple to follow, but was able to get the moral and meaning out to everyone. The theater I was in erupted in applause after the movie. Not because it was over, but because it was that good.
