Visitor Comments

Isabella Balducci (21): I was in the mood for a good comedy...but LIFE is only filled with a few laughs - very disappointing! Ted Demme could have done much more with the movie concept!

Guinevere Vos (22): I was expecting so much humour in this film that when the laughs weren't coming I got so bored - a waste of Murphy's and Lawrence's talents.

Knox Bodenstein (26): I don't think the movie was intended to be just one laugh after the other. There is a lot of feeling and a seriousness to the plot. The dialogue, however is sometimes a bit lame. The make up was very good.

Andrew Simpson (17): I was very suprised to see that Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence the best comedy pair around would act in a kind of drama. Very good movie, though.
