Finally, an Eddie Murphy worth watching! (by maverick-86)
I found this film funny and inventive. Two adjectives that I have not been able to use for an Eddie Murphy film for a long time.With a story line as good as this one, it was up to Eddie to see how he could develop it. If this film had a flaw, I think this was it. I believe had Mr Murphy decided to look really deeply into the role of Rayford Gibson, it could have been a possible "Oscar" role for him.There are no doubts regarding Eddie Murphy's acting ability, yet sometimes I think he sacrifices the script and his role for a cheap laugh when it's not really necessary. It is <more>
possible that he is caught up in his own 'identity creation' of "Eddie Murphy: Comedy first, drama...maybe not!"That said, Eddie Murphy and his worthy partner, Martin Lawrence successfully produce a comedy worth watching. I just hope that Eddie Murphy continues in this same vein. Please no more films like Beverly Hills Flop 3 and Holy Man!Finally, a general point, which needs to be addressed, is that it is so strange how comedy films with far more substance, fail to do well financially. Moreover, there are films which fall short in quality, that can generate $100M+ for substandard, regurgitated, "comedy". "Life" which is struggling to reach the $65M mark falls into the former category. "Austin Powers: The Spy who Shagged Me" and "Big Daddy" definitely fall in the latter. The mind boggles!Anyway, for those who have not seen "Life", go and see, you won't regret watching it.
After reading the user comments on this movie, it appears that the main complaint is that it is not the rollicking laugh-a-minute comedy that fans of the two leads expected. Once you let that expectation go, this is a great movie! It succeeds as a drama with comic tone. There have been some great ones that do this, and we mistakenly classify them as comedies. For example, M*A*S*H, Mr. Roberts, It's a Wonderful Life. These are pictures that provide comic overtones to people struggling to get through a very serious and overwhelming event: war, contemplated suicide, and in the case of Life, <more>
life imprisonment.I was surprised at how good Murphy is in this flick.Not one of my favorites, he convinces as he ages and grows under the burden his character carries, that of an entire life stolen from him. And he survives with a certain dignity. Lawrence is almost as good, but he does labor a bit with the dramatic parts, seeming a bit uncomfortable shedding his comic bent. Note that when these characters are shown as old men, Murphy actually becomes an old man, Lawrence is still a young man in oldster's make-up. Let's not overlook an interesting small role expertly understated by Ned Beatty, and the charm of Bokeem Woodbine as Can't Get Right. Life is well-mounted and the sets are as convincing as any I've seen. Comedies are rarely as dirty and sweaty as this movie. I thoroughly enjoyed this picture, realizing early on that it was a very serious movie wrongly hyped as a comedy.
Finally! Eddie Murphy is back. This is one of his funniest movies in years. And that wasn't hard to do. This movie is enough to make you forgive him for "The Nutty Professor" and "Holy Man". But, I'm not sure that it's going to be enough to make me forgive him for doing "The Nutty Professor II". Anyhow, he gets it right this time. This movie is one laugh riot from beginning to end. Murphy and Lawrence have good chemistry throughout the movie. It's a lot likes the chemistry between Lawrence and Tim Robbins in "Nothing To Lose". So, rush <more>
out to your nearest theater and slap down your $8.50. It's well worth it.
Life 1999 : Dir: Ted Demme / Cast: Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, R. Lee Ermey, Poppy Montgomery, Ned Beatty: Well crafted comedy about friendship and companionship with very serious undertones. Title indicates both imprisonment and friendship that opens in 1932 Harlem. Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence meet by chance and are assigned to transport illegal booze. One fatal stop results in imprisonment for a murder they never committed. They spend a long 40 years in prison and for a comedy this is quite depressing especially when it references the prisoners who died during this period. There <more>
are many interesting moments that test their stability. Director Ted Demme gives a sense of isolation in a film that is quite different from his previous film Beautiful Girls. Convincing makeup demonstrates the ageing process. Both Murphy and Lawrence share a wonderful chemistry that endures until the injustice is faced. The ending is clever and justified when considering the plot problem. R. Lee Ermey plays the Sheriff who frames them and will resurface later when he is confronted and revealed. Poppy Montgomery plays a flamboyant visiting daughter subjected to sex. Ned Beatty plays a superintendent whom Murphy and Lawrence at an elderly age work for. Beatty will ultimately learn the truth and work to reverse the damages. It regards time and friendship as key elements in living life. Score: 9 / 10
The first reviewer must not be an Eddie Murphy fan, nor a comedy fan. This movie was one of the funniest ever made. It included humor, sadness and it was thoughtful too. Martin Lawrence was just as funny and they are the funniest comedy team in a long time. They should do more movies together. Eddie should do more movies of this sort. Some of the best and funniest African American comedians in the modern era. This is a great movie and a must see for any fan of African American humor. Another strong suit in this comedy is the makeup. With Eddie and Martin aging fifty years. Rick Baker did a <more>
"Life" features the comic greatness of Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, along with many other rising talents, in a comedy about two innocent, cantankerous Harlem-ites who are framed for a grisly murder in Mississippi circa the Depression, and find themselves incarcerated for life in an exceptionally hysterical, and sometimes endearing, film. "Mis-matched from the ghet-co", Ray Gibson and Claude Banks Murphy and Lawrence, respectively spend some "hard time" getting to know, detest, and finally, love, one another, while befriending fellow inmates Willie Long <more>
the narrator , Jangle Leg a riotous Bernie Mac , Biscuit, Goldmouth, "Can't Get Right" and others, and combating against the brutal yet inane prison system, while undertaking several schemes of escape. "Life" is sometimes hilarious, sometimes somber, sometimes nostalgic, and always entertaining. The comedic duo of Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence is nothing short of sheer casting dynamite, and both comedians deliver some of their finest roles here. It's rife with whimsical southern dialect "You go eat your cornbread?; "I da pappy"; etc. and Eddie Murphy's raucous personality translates perfectly here "Anyone mess around with me, it's gon' be consequences and repercussions!" ; this is perhaps the most hysterical and amusing dialog ever written for a "southern comedy". Also worth commending is the exquisitely perfect makeup work of Rick Baker: Murphy and Lawrence as feuding "old folks"- only Baker could achieve such an infeasible task! "Life" is a genuinely hilarious, if conventional and clichéd, comedy, which delivers supremely on laughs, character development, and solid entertainment. See it for Murphy and Lawrence, if for nothing else. ***1/2 out of ****
If you're not a fan of Eddie Murphy's humor, then skip this one.The movie begins in modern times, 1997, with the main characters' funerals. The movie then flashes back to 1932 to begin telling their story, and continues as they age in prison in Mississippi.They were "petty criminals" but were sentenced to life in prison for a murder they did not commit. However, being black in 1930s Mississippi did them no favors. The story that unfolds is irreverent and funny and has enough twists along the way to keep things very interesting. I can't understand why the average <more>
rating of this movie is below "6". I give it "8" of "10" for its overall entertainment value, plus a few "life's little lessons" thrown in. I think it is one of Eddie Murphy's best movies.
eddie murphy's best movie of the 90's (by daworldismine)
when me and my friends sat down to watch life the other night we were expecting some laughs and not much else, boy was we wrong, yeah sure we got the laughs, a lot of them but we also got some heartbreakin moments and a lot of heart. the story has eddie murphy and martin lawrence doing a job for the local mobster, while there they stumble upon a murdered man, who happens to have eddie murphy's dad's watch, they are then sent to prison for life for a murder they didn't commit. sure the story don't sound like its gonna be a barrell of laughs, but trust me it is, the cast are <more>
fantastic we got eddie murphy, martin lawrence and bernie mac, the direction is great as is the script, the movie works great as a comedy, works well as a drama, and id definitely recommend to anybody. great film
Its surprising to see that this film has an average of 6 out of 10. This is not only a hilarious movie, but it also has a good story line. Eddy Murphy and Martin Lawrence work great together, the cast also includes other great actors such as Bernie Mack. Ted Demme did a great job creating a Mississippi prison during segregation. This film will have out laughing throughout, but at the same time bring a tear to your eye. You will love Ray's crazy plans and plots to escape and how he always brings Claude down with him. This is one of my favorite movies, it has the perfect blend of <more>
