We're not going to ask if the funny Eddie Murphy returned. We aren't going to mention that whole Oscars situation. We won't even discuss the fact that the comedian's new movie, 'Tower Heist,' underwhelmed at the box office this past weekend. All we're going to say is this: The first trailer for 'A Thousand Words,' Eddie Murphy's next film, is here, and this is what it's about: Murphy's character loves to lie. Unfortunately, his lying gets him into trouble, and Murphy soon finds out that he has only 1,000 words left to speak before he dies. Hijinks ensue: He can't argue with his wife! He can't order coffee at Starbucks! He can't stand up for himself in business meetings!

Sigh. We're also not going to talk about the fact that this film sort of resembles 'Liar Liar' and that the notion of Eddie's character writing things down to communicate in this, doesn't exist.

If you want to see 'A Thousand Words,' it opens on March 23, 2012.
