Life is a surprise that not only avoids typical trappings, but throws in a tinge of the bittersweet as well.

Murphy and Lawrence never quite move beyond shtick.

Face it folks: Eddie Murphy just ain't funny anymore.

Lawrence and Murphy make an entertaining team!

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.

Ribald, funny and sometimes sweet, and well acted by Murphy, Lawrence and a strong supporting cast.

Life plays more like This Is Your Life for Eddie Murphy, cobbling together elements from his earlier, funnier movies.

A lot of laughs!

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.

If you're looking for comedy nutrition here, you'll find yourself in stand-up anorexic hell.

The movie doesn't care much about realism, depicting the rigors of prison-farm life about as convincingly as Life Is Beautiful portrays a Nazi death camp. But it makes up in energy what it lacks in authenticity.

Screenwriters Robert Ramsey and Matthew Stone deserve hard time for the tired, plodding shtick they concoct once the duo end up in prison stripes.
January 1, 2000
An unimaginative plot and a cast of unbelievably wholesome jailbirds.

Formulaic, obvious and very slow!

January 1, 2000
Funny, sad, conventional, unpredictable -- just like the real thing!
January 1, 2000
We have been treated to something we normally would never get in a prison comedy like this: a little delicacy with the humor.
January 1, 2000
Lawrence's best movie and one of Murphy's best!
