Eddie on formBy Simon from Kent , 13 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I saw this a few years back and thought it was disappointing for a Murphy/Lawrence flick. Just seen it again and enjoyed it. It was not an all out comedy which made it more watchable but still very funny.

Reminiscent of Eddie Murphy's good old timesBy a customer from Manchester , 08 Aug 2009This was an overall quite good movie. Although slow in some parts, the story is well-told and the characters very well-developed. The movie made me nostalgic of the good old Eddie Murphy comedies, as it seems that for this one Eddie just about managed to get his old funny hat back on.
Definitely recommended, especially for Murphy fans.
Life...By a customer from Epsom , 26 Jul 2009A classic eddie murphy humour filled movie! It was an easy watching movie with some serious moral points that came across in a light hearted way. If you like eddie then you will love this movie as it brought out the best in him!
Life. Not what i expectedBy Koppitedownsout (2 reviews) from Worthing , 12 Jul 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThis film was not what i expected it to be in the slightest, i saw the cast and thought that it must surely be an over the top comedy, but i was wrong! Both Murphy and Lawrence play stellar roles throughout, in what is a thought provoking serious comedy. There are laughs to be had throughout the film but there are darker undertones at the same time, looking at the racial inequality and discrimination of the united states penal system throughout the 20th century.
Murphy and Lawrence play two black males of entirely different lifestyles and aspirations in 1930s America who happen to get tangled up together and sentenced to life imprisonment for a crime they did not commit. the film continually shows the racism of Americas southern states of the 30s onward in an eye opening way whilst somewhat softening the harsh history with well thought comic moments. I won't say any more as this is a film that has to be watched to be fully appreciated.
