Tell a Friend

I spend way too much time at the theaters.
I'm a slave to the Hollywood Visionaries.  God help me.


Directed by Ted Demmer

Written by Robert Ramsey and Mathew Stone

Starring: Eddir Murphy, Martin Lawrence,
Obba Babatunde, Ned Beatty, Bernie Mac

My advice: Go back to bed.

Rating:  It gets a Lemon Award!!!  

I'm going to make this quick and to the point.

After sitting though his horrible abomination and wasting away 100 or so minutes of my life I am now convinced we should just abolish the death penalty and instead punish wayward souls with a mandated viewing of this "Life".

The entire time I sat there, I struggled with my desire to run shrieking for the door. After my Dudley Do-Right experience, I had decided I was going to give every movie a redeeming chance! Well, Life deserved as much a chance as Barney's Final Adventure deserved to So, I slapped two couch cushions up against the side of my head, broke out the tequila, and waded on in.

While I enjoy both Murphy and Lawrence in other venues, I just couldn't enjoy them here. Set back in the twenties or so - God help me, I really tried to pay attention -- it's the story of two guys who get sentenced to life in jail for a crime they didn't commit. The rest of the film is an embarrassment of off-color language, little humor and very little else.

I just can't go on. See Life if you want to. But don't forget to bring the tequila.
