So many obviously-not-good movies get made in a given year, there’s really no point in singling out individual ones or acting particularly surprised when a movie that looks bad fails with the critics.
That is, unless a film manages to pull the bad-movie equivalent of Shooting The Moon and achieves a dubious 0% Rating on Rotten Tomatoes, an achievement of futility that’s so rare and requires so much across-the-board luck (and badness), it’s actually kind of impressive:
Just to put that 0% in perspective, check out the ratings on these other Eddie Murphy movies:
Yup, all of those scored higher than A Thousand Words. Sorry, dude! We promise we’ll spend the rest of the day watching standup clips and quoting Coming To America.
On the plus side, by looking up these movies, I came across the amazing Japanese title for Norbit.
