A review of a midnight show of A Thousand Words, that shitty Eddie Murphy movie about a magic tree

Back in July 2008, I remember reading the movie listings for Philadelphia-area movie theaters. There's absolutely no reason this memory should be emblazoned in my mind, save for one strange fact — multiple theaters in the greater Bucks-Montgomery County nexus were holding opening night 12:01 AM showings of Meet Dave,… » 3/09/12 9:45am 3/09/12 9:45am
