The stand-up comedy bits are not funny, but it's a decent drama about a mother who becomes famous and her relationship with her two daughters. (First viewing - In my mid-twenties)

Some good dialogue and pleasant story, but somehow. it just doesn't quite make it to the really good.

A funny and honest film about a rise to fame and true mother-daughter relationships.

Caught this movie on HBO. It was cute in a way. Hadn't seen Julie Kavner play a lead role that I can think of right off. She's known for the voice of Marge Simpson. However, I think she pulled it off pretty well. The little subplots in the movie actually take away from the story itself which the two children do a great job holding together.

If you have an hour to waste then you get to a slightly touching part, followed by 10 more minutes of agony. Such a good cast movie had potential but do yourself a favor and don't. Lick a fork and stick it in a socket, it's quicker!!

This Is My Life is the story of a Single mother who dreams of becoming a stand up comedian and the relationship she shares with her two daughters.
Julie Kavner plays Dottie. Aside from her voice grating on my nerves, she voices the famous Marge Simpson, I thought her performance was nothing spectacular. A young Samantha Mathis plays her oldest daughter, Erica. She was convincing as this teenager who was trying to come into her own. An even younger Gaby Hoffman plays the youngest daughter, Opal. The girls did have good chemistry as sisters. The cast also stars Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and the great Dan Akroyd. Although, there wasn't enough of his character, and he wasn't able to bring out his wonderful comedic flare at all.
With Nora Ephron in the directors chair, I really expected this to be a heartwarming tale with the box of Kleenex handy. This Is My Life was cute, but it was lacking something. I would give it lukewarm at best.
