You ever use RottenTomatoes.com? It’s a handy resource that pulls together reviews of new films. For his latest alleged comedy, A Thousand Words, Eddie Murphy has reteamed with director Brian Robbins, whose filmography includes the Murphy classics Norbit and Meet Dave, as well as Wild Hogs and The Shaggy Dog. Median Tomatometer score: 17.25. Out of 100. In A Thousand Words, Murphy is the victim of some wacky spell that leaves him with just 1,000 words to spread out over the rest of life. Pity the tally had to start with such a large number. Or that it had to start at all. Speaking of numbers and RottenTomatoes.com, A Thousand Words is currently rocking the rare 0 percent approval rating, a notable feat indeed.
