BET.com Exclusive Clip: Eddie Murphy and Kerry Washington’s A Thousand Words

Watch an extended trailer for the comedy, which hits theaters March 9.

Published March 8, 2012

Eddie Murpy’s back on the big screen alongside Kerry Washington and actor Cliff Curtis in A Thousand Words, a new comedy that explores the consequences of every word we speak.

Murphy plays Jack McCall, a literary agent who’s fast talk routinely seals his deals. After trying to get over on a deal with a spiritual guru (Curtis), Jack discovers a magical Bodi tree has popped up on his property. 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 will perish, leaving him to discover outrageous ways to communicate and a handful of life lessons along the way.

Watch the clip above, which includes a scene with Murphy and the equally hilarious funny-man John Witherspoon (Friday, Wayans Bros.).

A Thousand Words hits theaters this Friday, March 9.
