Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Martin Lawrence
5.0 out of 5 stars Pure comedy gold., 1 Feb 2012
Martin Lawrence does it again! Is there anything this man can't make funny? Coming off the back of an award-winning, critically acclaimed string of Hollywood blockbusters (Big Momma's house, Big Momma's house 2 and Black Knight to name but a few) Lawrence goes back to his roots: Stand up!

It is literally laugh-a-minute stuff. Laugh many times a minute to be more exact... My calculations say on average there was 4.2 laughs per minute throughout the feature, or 0.8 guffaws. Truly inspiring stuff.

I don't know what else to say. I may be a huge Lawrence fan, but I really think this is a must see stand up show for everyone!

I, personally, see this film as the springboard of Lawrence's career. The plaudits he recieved for such a performance… Read more
