"A Thousand Words" Makes Rotten Tomatoes History

I know beating up on Eddie Murphy's latest disaster A Thousand Words is like kicking a dead horse. What's the point? It's suffered enough already. And yet it's like a guy with a "Kick Me" sign taped to his back. You just can't help yourself. You have to kick it

Thousand Words

I know beating up on Eddie Murphy's latest disaster A Thousand Words is like kicking a dead horse. What's the point? It's suffered enough already. And yet it's like a guy with a "Kick Me" sign taped to his back. You just can't help yourself. You have to kick it

And now after suffering the indignity of being another film that could nail the coffin shut on Murphy's career (At least I hope not. I think we all want him to make a blazing comeback and to come back into our good graces) Words is now making RottenTomatoes.com history by being the first wide release film this year to get a ZERO score on the website.

According go the editor-in-chief of the site, which collects and averages out the ratings of film critics reviews for all movies,  there are only probably "3 or 4 dozens zeroes going back to the start of the site in 1999".

And even worse, of its list of zero films, Words will probably come in as the "fifth or sixth worst in the hisiory" of the site. Words joins an elite group of "zero" films such as Bucky Larson (the worst reviewed film of last year) and the infamous, would-be spy comedy with Antonio Banderas,  Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever

Even Catwoman got a 10 score,  The Adventures of Pluto Nash with Murphy scored a 6 and the legendary (and sinister Scientology recruitment ad) sci-fi film Battlefield Earth ranked higher with a 2 score.
