A fast-talking agent learns that he can only speak 1,000 more words before he dies in this feel-good comedy. Superstar Eddie Murphy plays Jack McCall, a glib literary agent who never bothers to read anything and will say almost anything to make a deal. Suddenly, a magical tree with 1,000 leaves sprouts in his backyard and every time Jacks says or writes a single word, a leaf falls off. Now the silver-tongued Jack has to find hilarious new ways to communicate and learn to make every word count-before all the leaves are gone!
Co-starring Kerry Washington, Cliff Curtis, Clark Duke, with Allison Janney. Directed by Brian Robbins; written by Steve Koren.
