Viewed: A Thousand Words

My recommendation for this one was:

"Even though the outcome of A Thousand Words seems pretty obvious, the perfect-length trailer, and watching some good old Eddie Murphy comedy, confirmed that I will likely see this one soon."

Yes, the outcome was obvious.  That said, I like Eddie Murphy and I like the intended sentiment of this film but as a whole it seemed too disjointed.  The first part of the film was silly, kind of fun Eddie slapstick.  The second part of this film was more introspective and Eddie's physical comedy, while present, slowed down.  The problem was that the supporting characters didn't clue in and the attempted comedy was just annoying.

A Thousand Words was kind of like Woody Allen's mythical creature the Roe:  it has the head of a lion and the body of a lion, but not the same lion.
