"In this episode we discuss a movie about a man who only has a limited number of words to speak—in other words, Elliott's worst nightmare. We talk about A Thousand Words

Movie Summary[]


A movie where we're promised Eddie Murphy will die if he uses up his last one thousand words, but then he doesn't die in the movie.


Jack McCall is a selfish literary agent whose fast-talking ways allow him to close any deal. His next target is New Age guru Dr. Sinja, but the savvy doctor sees right through Jack. A magical tree appears in Jack's yard, and, according to Dr. Sinja, the tree and Jack are connected; every time Jack says a word, a leaf falls from the tree. When the last leaf drops, Jack will die. With just a thousand leaves left, Jack must learn to curb his speech or he's a goner.
