A wonderfully funny movie about the after-life.
9 July 2000 | by (Rochester, New Yorl) – See all my reviews

This movie, about a dreamer who never plans for the future, dies suddenly and doesn't know it. He attempts to speak with his wife and children, but gets frustrated when they can not hear him. He is then met by a man who explains to him that he is dead, and has come to escort him to heaven. Suddenly the dead man realizes that his "guide" is his own dead father. Together, the two dead men connive to arrange for the family's future security.

I found this movie to be surprisingly funny. The charachters are a little predictable, but they fit the movie well. Frank Morgan and Keenan Wynn are wonderful as son and father, after you get used to seeing a father who is younger than the son.
