Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney has some choice words for "A Thousand Words"

2 1/2
Movie reviewer McKinney says we are in the doldrums of the movie year

             Andy says, "A Thousand Words is a lukewarm comedy/drama that can best be enjoyed by fans of Eddie Murphy's classic manic comedy style.
            "All in all, this is only average or a little less.  We should think of A Thousand Words as a mathematically average 2 1/2 Saw Blade film. 
            "The people are never wrong (although critics are often wrong).  The optimistic producers spent a whopping $40 million, somehow, on making this film.  Wise members of the viewing public have squandered a mere $18 million in five weeks at the box office.  I think the public wants to see genuinely good films and is prepared to pay for the privilege, but won’t put out much cash for the mediocre." 
          For more on Andy's comments and showtimes for A Thousand Words at the Sawmill Theatre in Payson, go to the Payson Daily Bugle's Movie Review Page.
