Audience Reviews for My Life

This was really slow-moving to me, and it was hard to stay interested. Keaton's character wasn't very likable until about the last 30 minutes, and at that point I was bored and waiting for the movie to end.

Super Reviewer

A beautiful movie!

I am a little surprised the critics panned this film. I thought it was very effective. Michael Keaton manages to pull off a very difficult role. The film combines a very morbid subject with effective bits of comedy. It is touching, funny and poignant. The characters are very well developed. It's a wonderful film.
