Overview

A handful of close friends, due to turn 30, discover that their dreams for the future are running headfirst into the realities of adulthood in this character-driven comedy-drama. Natalie (Melissa De Sousa) is a banker who is happy with her job, but is tired of being single, and her pursuit of a husband is taking her down several blind alleys in the world of dating. Joy (Erika Alexander) has developed a similar desire to settle down and get married, but while she has a long-term boyfriend, Leland (T.E. Russell), he isn't so sure he wants to make a lifetime commitment. Troy (Tracy Morgan) is a comic who has been on the verge of a career breakthrough for years, but he's started to wonder if his big break is ever going to arrive. Maleek (Allen Payne) is a white-collar executive who thinks life is passing him by, and is pondering giving up a stable career to start over as a male model. And Stephanie (Paula Jai Parker) is comfortable with her job in real estate, but she's not so comfortable with herself as she struggles with a weight problem she's had since childhood. 30 Years for Life marked the directorial debut for Vanessa Middleton, who previously distinguished herself as a television writer for such series as Cosby and Hangin' With Mr. Cooper.

This is a really funny film. I saw it in New York. The theater was packed and the audience was really laughing out loud.

For anyone that is at that age when they are about to turn 30, this is a MUST see. I saw it in NY and was BLOWN away, it is an excellently funny film. I'm turly disappointed that it didn't get a wider release. The toe scene will have you on the FLOOR dying with laughter. I'm buying copies for me and all of my friends who are just a few years away from the big 3-0.

I saw this at an urban film screening in Atlanta. The movie is entertaining and the cast is top-notch. There is never a boring moment in this movie - you will be thoroughly entertained!

This is a movie you want to see. All of you who are soon to join the 30's club will get a big kick out of it and all of you 30 somethings + will love it because it brings you back to the been there done that moments. It's nice to see a movie which shows us in a positive light.

I enjoy seeing black movies that depict us with normal lives doing normal things. This is a great movie, a funny movie. I can see myself, some of my friends, and other people I know in this movie. I realistically captures the moment when you realize that "yes" you are turning 30. It's a great movie.

Although this movie doesn't cater to the stereotypical black situations, it can't be overlooked that THIS MOVIE IS BORING!! I actually am confused by the good reviews it has received. Maybe I missed something, but the first time I watched it, I turned it off after waiting a good hour for someting interesting to happen. The second time, I got to the end but I had experienced absolutely no emotions or reactions at all. No laughter, nostalgia, satisfaction, nothing... Maybe it's just me...
