I'll use Ice Bleu because it's March.
 
When Eddie Murphy humiliates a mystic badly enough, he gets revenge by cursing Murphy. Once he speaks 1,000 more words, he'll suddenly die. I don't know how well this could do as a horror film premise, but then again the mystic could've killed Murphy where he stood, so there's one molecule of leniency.
 
I've heard of a manga called Death Note (I've never seen or read it), and the most specific thing I remember about it is: If the cause of death is not filled out in 40 seconds, the default kicks in and the victim just dies of a heart attack. Anyone want to contrast this film with that manga?
 
The director's name is Brian Robbins, and his resume consists of the following Bottom 40ers: Ready to Rumble, Hardball, Big Fat Liar, The Shaggy Dog [remake], Wild Hogs, Norbit, and Meet Dave. The Perfect Score was a 2004 dishonorable mention film. That's a whopping EIGHT bad films since Y2K!
 
Lastly, its first review on Rotten Tomatoes is negative.
 
There, only 169 words!

In the words of Metacritic's 2012 Spring Movie Preview (http://www.metacritic.com/feature/spring-movie-preview-2012), 'The long-shelved Eddie Murphy comedy A Thousand Words will likely be one of the frontrunners for next year's Razzie Awards, if the trailer and early buzz is any indication.'  This is in a field that may include "Wrath of the Titans", "The Three Stooges", "Battleship", "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2", and "The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D" if it's released.  Based on the way we've been voting over the past few years, I'm not sure if it's gonna stand out.

It makes sense that you chose this movie. Everytime Eddie Murphy has a comeback, he goes back to bad movies. While his turn in TOWER HEIST didn't seem to be memorable, it was something.

It also makes sense that you created this forum now. Next week there are a bunch of possible contenders, so at least one of them will get a forum too.

You want this don't you Murphy?
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Eddie already has five Razzies, so maybe he wants an even number of Razzies.

Eddie Murphy doesn't care about the Razzies. Also I don't think this will show up on the Final Ballot for 2012.   


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Just did a bit of online research and found out at IMDb that this movie went into production ALMOST FOUR YEARS AGO (LINK) and has been moldering in Paramount's vaults ever since. If that's not an indication that 1000 WORDS has RAZZIE® potential, I don't know what is!

Man oh man -- even when he's not talking, Eddie can still be annoying! 
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

This currently has a zero at RT! And, apparently, shares a screenwriter with Jack & Jill.

UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: Anyone wondering why Paramount decided not to pre-screen 1000 WORDS for critics need only read this article from the March 8, 2012 Los Angeles TimesLINK.

Nicolas Cage produced this..... Wow. Probably not too surprising, but still.

I'm not going to write a thousand words about this bucket of dog turds, because the definitive beatdown of the 2013 RAZZIE winner is on the Salon Web Page. 


And where is this coalition of cow patties standing on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer as of 247 PM on Friday 3/9/12????

A BIG FAT ZERO!!!!!!
