Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy) is a literary agent who has a way with words, often using them to get what he wants, even if it means stretching the truth a little. To teach him a lesson, a spiritual guru grants Jack a thousand words to use however he wishes. But Jack will have to choose his words wisely because when they run out, so will his life.
