Lively, packed with colorful characters and spiked with outbursts of outrageous banter!

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

Life desperately wants to let Murphy and Lawrence be actors, but it can't imagine them as anything more than rowdy showmen.

Lawrence and Murphy make an entertaining team!

Funny, sad, conventional, unpredictable -- just like the real thing!

This prison dramedy's muddled, episodic script seems to have gone on a hunger strike for humor!

What's most effective about Life is the skillful way in which it blends poignancy into its broad tale.

Lawrence's best movie and one of Murphy's best!

Ambitious, enjoyable.

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

A very funny/surprisingly poignant story!
