3.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting December 4, 2003
This movie was truly a trip, I really don't know what to make of it, even though it looks like a movie that was just put together by some brothers with one camcorder, and no lights, I still in a lot of ways found it interesting. I think all the people in the movie have a lot of potential. Jarell whom I've worked with before on a project, acts a lot like Chris Tucker, but if he can just find some of his own style and mix his Chris Tucker style, that boy will go places. I would have liked to have seen the Asian girl (Kumi) whom I also worked with, I wanted to see her more in the film, she is funny. The one that really got me, was the little boy, that little brother is FUNNY. I was a little
uneasy about his cursing at his age, but I kept over looking it cause that little ni@#$% is funny, If he keeps going he is going to be a star.
Another thing I found very interesting, is the producer/director did a low budget movie like this, with some up coming comedians with a lot of potential, and end up having it distributed by Artisan Entertainment, very clever Joe!

1.0 out of 5 stars Remove From The Stores September 12, 2003
This has to be the worst low budget film I have ever seen. It has no plot. The acting was horrible. It has only one funny seen in it. I don't know what type of life this is suppose to display but I assure you that it is not the life of young black men growing up in the hood where all odds are against them! It appears that they have no idea what it's like to grow up in the hood. I myself walked the streets in Georgia and this is not remotely close to what I have seen in my lifeThe sound quality is all messed up. It sounds distorted. I'm glad I only rented this garbage or I would be upset.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Place to Place the Bodies Life Births October 1, 2003
Being low budget isn't the mark of many a good movie, and having defects in the plots doesn't normally allow one to succeed. In fact, this movie, through that combination, will be considered a failure to a plethora of people watching and shouldn't be checked out by everyone. Many will see this movie, touted as a mixture of How High and the Friday series, notice that it was made in the low finance world outside of the monster money movies, and they will scoff at it. And rightly so if they picked it up for these reasons, because it is none of the above. Unfortunately for people who leave the setting angry, the scoffing misses out on something else the movie has; the essence of what can only be called humor.
Through campy dialog, streams of profanity, a variety of strange twists, and "gangsta" cracks, this movie follows the lives of two "thugs" trying to make their way through a jobless life. They happen through the day in a fashion that can only be consider disturbingly surreal, with one motion leading to another motion until they end up with a dead crack addict in their trunk and need a way to dispose of the body. So, how does one dispose of a body like that? By getting sidetracked in a way that only those two can.
They find themselves all sorts of political and social issues that are important to us all, confronting sexual issues like the acquisition of undergarb sealife and the ways to make means by "jacking up" people, letting things roll on and on until they seem out of control.
And it only goes further.
Before you buy this movie, be warned. It is very low quality, has no actors you'll see again, and it has some sound problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars hilarious movie yet not for everybody October 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Livin tha life is a great example of comedy on a tight budget. No big name stars, no plot no sets just down to earth humor. Movie is extremely vulgar but if your searching for this movie you already know that. A must add to any urban movie lovers collection

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage at it's purest... November 8, 2003
Wow, I've never seen a movie so awful in all my life. This movie is the result of 8 or 9 friends getting together one day and thinking to themselves, "Hey! Lets make a movie! With our connections we could make SOME money."
This movie has no plot, and no direction. It's just a bunch of really crappy actors, with crappy stereotypical urban black dialogue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low budget and brown but not bad.. August 8, 2006
It's interesting that with the advent of video cameras getting cheaper that independent films get made en masse. With that within reguard this one isn't bad. The lighting is good and stands should it's sunlight. It was pretty funny and chances are I'm going to see it with the directors commentary...the drug scene I thought was a bit too long but beyond that it was good.

BTW you can see the infamous clip if you go to google and type "Where's my change *itch"

1.0 out of 5 stars Ghetto Fabulous!!!! June 22, 2009
By Vee
I thought this was stupid funny... The thought of running around all day sratching with the crabs, was just crazy. Although low budget and poor acting the movie had a plot, dumb as hell but they had one! Anything is possible in the hood so it wasn't that far fetch... A classic for me with my favorite scene 'where's my change" which was unbelievable but again, in the hood anything is possible. I Liked!
