'A Thousand Words' Trailer with Eddie Murphy is a 'Liar Liar' Copycat

Honestly, after hearing that Eddie Murphy had dropped out as the Oscar host following Brett Ratner's controversial resignation as the broadcast's producer, I was disappointed we wouldn't be seeing the actor in some sort of stand-up comedy format. But then the trailer for his new comedy A Thousand Words debuted today, and the Liar Liar rip-off made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. Now I'll be avoiding this movie at all costs, hoping The Muppets end up replacing him as Oscar hosts, and weeping for the days Murphy used to have a funny bone in his body about 20 years ago. Watch the trailer below if you dare!
Here's the first official trailer for Brian Robbins' A Thousand Words, originally via Vlicious:

Long delayed and shot back in 2008, Eddie Murphy stars in A Thousand Words, the story of a fast-talking man full of lies who learns that he can only speak a thousand more words before he dies. Norbit and Meet Dave director Brian Robbins worked from a script by Steve Koren (Bruce Almighty, Click). The film also features Kerry Washington, Clark Duke, Allison Janney and more. A Thousand Words hits theaters starting March 23rd, 2012, just in time to get pummeled by The Hunger Games. Thoughts?
