The Movie had such deep meaning and for a movie to have that as well as comedy is remarkable. Eddie Murphy played a fantastic role recovering himself from previous films that weren't as successful. With a wonderful soundtrack and spiritual meaning the movie has changed the way I look at life, the song "Out Loud" played during the credits is a very meaningful song if you listen to the lyrics. Their are parts in the film where you want to laugh and others where you want to cry. Overall it was a fantastic film I give the film a 10/10.
Enjoy the film Highly Recommended Go to the website for more information, the trailer, DVDs, Photos and other downloads http://www.thousandwordsmovie.com/ Hope You Enjoy it :)
