It's strange how this is one of Eddie Murphy's least popular and least well-known movies, yet I'd consider it to be one of my favourites of his. 'Life' is a great comedy movie, with a funny plot and an entertaining bunch of characters, but it also carries a deeper meaning and is just as much a tale about friendship and social injustice as it about making the audience laugh. The on-screen relationship between Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence is without doubt the best part of this film. Individually they are great actors and funny guys but their performance together in this film was one of the most memorable and enjoyable of any comedy movie I've seen. The characters are at the forefront of everything that happens in this film and every laugh comes from them rather than the story. 'Life' is underrated and deserves more recognition, especially as an Eddie Murphy film.
