  • The movie's low budget shows, but the competent (many of them also sitcom veterans) cast keeps things moving smoothly. show more

  • Though 30 Years to Life doesn't break any new ground, it's a light, engaging, well-carpentered film, with a quick wit and a sense of character just deep enough to lend some weight to the laugh lines. show more
