How could these two guys NOT be funny? See the movie and find out.
| Original Score: 5/10
Murphy and Lawrence never quite move beyond shtick.
| Original Score: 1/5
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Não há atuação que resista a um roteiro fraco como o deste filme.
| Original Score: 2/5
| Original Score: 0.5/4
Face it folks: Eddie Murphy just ain't funny anymore.
| Original Score: short
If you're looking for comedy nutrition here, you'll find yourself in stand-up anorexic hell.
| Original Score: 1/4
Has a tendency to be marginally entertaining one minute, and then brain-numbingly dull and misguided the next.
| Original Score: 2/4
An unimaginative plot and a cast of unbelievably wholesome jailbirds.
| Original Score: 4/10
Life is a frustrating experience, because every time it appears close to making a connection to its characters it falls back on a lame joke to reassure the viewers that they're still watching a comedy.
| Original Score: 6/10
Life plays more like This Is Your Life for Eddie Murphy, cobbling together elements from his earlier, funnier movies.
Life desperately wants to let Murphy and Lawrence be actors, but it can't imagine them as anything more than rowdy showmen.
Murphy and Lawrence both give substance to roles as innocents sentenced to life in prison for a murder they didn't commit.
| Original Score: 69/100
A failed, if somewhat noble experiment for the two foul-mouthed comedians.
Screenwriters Robert Ramsey and Matthew Stone deserve hard time for the tired, plodding shtick they concoct once the duo end up in prison stripes.
Formulaic, obvious and very slow!
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Mostly lifeless because deep down, it's really about other movies.
A maudlin, unfunny mess!
