After discovering that with each word he speaks, a leaf drops off of the tree, Jack refuses to speak at all, as doing so will keep the tree, and him, alive. However, his work, marriage, and friendships are all affected by his choice. Can Jack figure out an alternative method of survival? Or will he simply have to live the rest of his life to the fullest?
Plot: Jack McCall is a fast-talking literary agent, who can close any deal, any time, any way. He has set his sights on New Age guru Dr. Sinja for his own selfish purposes. But Dr. Sinja is on to him, and Jack’s life comes unglued after a magical Bodhi tree mysteriously appears in his backyard. With every word Jack speaks, a leaf falls from the tree and he realizes that when the last leaf falls, both he and the tree are toast. Words have never failed Jack McCall, but now he’s got to stop talking and conjure up some outrageous ways to communicate or he’s a goner.

I Have Nothing to Say
I love Eddie Murphy , I really do , but why oh why would he make a film where he spends most of his time playing a very bad game of charades. The characteristics that make Eddie Murphy funny in the first place is what he says and how he says it, so there was really not a lot to look forward to in this film. I know that silent films are “in” this year with The Artist taking home best picture (really?), but that is where the genre should stop. By the way, just a quick note on that . Is it just me or does best picture always go to a film that no actually paid to see? Anyway, I really don’t think that the story was all that bad it’s just that it’s been done to death with films like Liar, Liar and Groundhog Day just to name a couple. The writer, Steve Koren also wrote Bruce Almighty, Evan Almighty and Click, so there you go. I think that the one saving grace in this film is the performance by Clark Duke (Aaron Wiseberger), who surprisingly was the comic relief in this film. Kerry Washington who played Caroline (great name) Eddie Murphy’s (Jack McCall’s) wife was boring, even when her character was charged with spicing up the script. It didn’t work. The predictability of this film was almost unbearable. By the middle of the film, I could have walked out and still given this film a spot-on review. Whatever you think is going to happen actually does happen. So there you go Now you don’t have to go and actually see it. I do want to say something positive about the film. There is a moral to the story and it was hard to miss This film was definitely not “big-screen” worthy. And to be honest, I am not sure it was small screen worthy either. I left the theater thinking, what a waste of time and money. I really want to see Eddie Murphy come back to life on the big screen, but he keeps picking the same old dry scripts. Heck, at this point he might fare well to even do another stand-up comedy film. Anything would be better than this. You might be wondering what I am going to give this film . Well I won’t leave you in suspense any longer. Without even muttering a sound, I am giving this film a big fat red light.
Not Even A Thousand Words Would Make This A Winner
This movie could have been a winner – much like The Golden Child – for Eddy Murphy. The premise for this film could have gone there – mystical, imaginative…the plot line lent itself to such success. However, rather than using Murphy’s awesome comedic talent, the makers of this picture resorted to reducing him to grimaces, hideous facial contortions – none of which were amusing at all. Granted there was a reason in the movie for Murphy’s character not to be able to talk for awhile, but he could easily have performed versions of charades, used eye rolls and raised eyebrows and brought the house down. However, that didn’t happen. It was all over the top and not funny at all. The only character in this picture to do justice to his part was Clark Duke playing Murphy’s assistant. This wasn’t enough to make the film a success. Such a waste and frankly, I’m rather tired of being disappointed when I go to the movies. Especially to an Eddy Murphy film. I expect more.
