Life script
Life (1999)
Synopsis: During Prohibition, loudmouth Harlem grifter Ray (Eddie Murphy) and the no-nonsense Claude (Martin Lawrence) team up on a bootlegging mission to Mississippi that could bring them big bucks. But they run into trouble when a crooked lawman hits them with a phony murder charge. Ray and Claude are given life sentences and shipped off to jail, where they must think of a way to prove their innocence and avoid the brutal guards while battling their biggest enemies -- their opposing personalities.

In the back, at the end of a long hallway, a BOUNCER cracks

open the door and Ray squeezes inside.

BOUNCER:

Oh, no, Ray. Not tonight. Spanky's

not happy with you.

RAY:

Is Spanky here?

BOUNCER:

No, but...

RAY:

Then what's the problem?

BOUNCER:

Do yourself a favor and find another

place where they let you in the front

door.

RAY:

But this is where the action is and

I have to be where the action is.

Look, when your old lady wanted those

alligator shoes, didn't I come through

for you? Ain't she stepping in style

now?

BOUNCER:

Yeah...

RAY:

Well, alright then. What do you think

about this new tie?

BOUNCER:

Sharp.

RAY:

I look good tonight. And I feel lucky,

too.

Ray heads inside.

BOUNCER:

Anyone asks, it wasn't me who let

you in.
