30 YEARS TO LIFE

Customer Reviews

The movie is could be depressing for some, but for me I laughed a lot.

I have 3 friends turning 30 this year, and several more right on the outskirts of turning 30, I plan to buy this movie for all of them!

30 Years to Life is a cute romantic comedy that follows the lives of six African American friends as they approach thirty years old in New York City. The cast consists Allen Payne, Tracy Morgan, Kadeem Hardison, Erica Alexander, Paula Jai Parker, T. Russell and Melissa De Sousa. As you can tell from the cast names and if you know their filmographies...then you know that all of these people can really act. So they have taken and crafted each character into a believable individual that most will be able to identify with.
The movie covers the span of one year. It begins with a birthday celebration and ends with one. You get an inside view of what women want in a relationship and also what men want. It is hilarious as the characters portray the most shallow to something of substance. Sometimes all that we think we want in a person (outer trappings like money, career, good looks)...does not enhance the inner person (inner qualities like politeness, caring, considerate, loving, giving and unselfishness). Paula's character deals with being a great person inside (and a great cook), but overlooked by most men because she is overweight. She has an extreme make over which takes her on an enlightening journey to get the man of her dreams. Tracy's character seems to be a non-committal jerk, trying to break into the comedy business and bumming money from women...but later he reveals why a broke brother does what he does (a self-esteem kinda thing...issues). Erika's character lives with her boyfriend of four years. She wants to get married, but he does not. He goes to buy her a bracelet and is accidently given another customer's ring purchase. So he does not have the heart to tell his girlfriend that their engagement was a mistake, fake, crazy mix-up...this was deep.

Six friends in NY face the emotions of turning 30. I could so identify with this movie. I'm 36, so a lot of what some of the characters were dealing with in this film, I've dealt with them or know others who have. 30 years to life starts with a birthday and ends with a birthday. At the beginning of the movie Natalie comes home from work to a surprise birthday party. Instead of being happy she screams "I'm 30" and runs away crying. Usually birthdays are reasons to celebrate, for Natalie she is facing the fact that she "Has an MBA, A Great well paying job, and is in great shape, but why is she not happy or married." Natalie really wants to be in a relationship, but she has trouble in the relationship area. Natalie is not the only character dealing with being 30 or about to turn 30. You have Joy who is in a 4 year relationship, but she really wants to be married to Leland. Joy has convinced herself that they do not need that piece of paper to label their relationship (man if I had a nickel for every time I heard that line I would be RICH). Leland feels if they get married, everything will change in the relationship, so he is comfortable with just living together the way they have been. Bottom line is he is scared!!! Malik is a marketing executive who has a negative idea about relationships. He sees relationships as "leasing with the option to buy", and he goes out of his way to NOT put himself in a situation where the relationship can get serious. However, he has no problems sleeping with woman, after woman, and forgets the names of some women. Malik works in Marketing and gets a promotion. He does not like how his career is mapped out for him over the next 10 years. He was informed of his career path and his projected salary by the time he was 40!Read more ›

Wow! What a really great movie! Expect really great acting from Erica Alexander, Allen Payne, Tracy Morgan, really the entire cast. A group of friends deal with the range of emotions from turning 30 years old. From crying at the birthday candles to quitting your job, to chase the elusize dream of your youth. This is a great movie, my husband and I really identified with it.

This movie is great! I saw it in NY and was laughing from start to finish. It is a MUST have for anyone who is about to turn 30. I have 3 friends turning 30 this year, and several more right on the outskirts of turning 30, I plan to buy this movie for all of them! This movie is so true to what getting older and leaving your 20's is all about!
Watch for the toe scene, the ring scene, and the "what's that noise" scene - They all will have you dying laughing.

This movie was good. I wish that it had a larger audience. Tracey Morgan was superb and very funny. Please support it on DVD, since it could not be supported in the movies.

I LOVED THIS MOVIE! I just caught it on SHOWTIME but missed the first 5 minutes and feel it is a must have. I really appreciated the humor in the relationships as well as the serious sides. I found it very interesting that they were able to capture the sweet and bitter points of relationships and growing older while making this a positive thought provoking movie which moves along nicely. A movie definitely worth viewing.

I ENJOYED THIS MOVIE. AS A FIFTY PLUS MALE; I FIND IT DELIGHTFUL TO SEE YOUNG BLACK ACTORS PERFORMING AS INTELLIGENT RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUALS. THE CHALLENGES THEY FACED IN THIS MOVIE CONTRAST THE "GUN CARRYING, TRYING TO GET OVER THUGS" THAT HOLLYWOOD SEEMS TO PUSH AS BLOCKBUSTERS. I DID'T APPROVE OF THE PROFANITY NOR THE CAUSAL SEX SCENES. BUT, THIS MOVIE IS CERTAINLY A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
