Goofs

When Bobby says to Emily "I'd like this night to be special", he is clearly holding a photograph in his left hand. He continues to hold the photo as he takes Emily by the hand. In the next cut, they are still holding hands, but the photo has disappeared. No mention is made of the photo in any of these scenes. See more »

One of My Fav 80's Comedies
18 June 2004 | by (US!!) – See all my reviews

Basically this movie is about a guy that ends up dying way too young from a car crash. In order for him to get into heaven, he has to help out a teenager with certain things. I don't want to go too far into it b/c I don't want to risk spoiling it for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Looking back at it now, it's a little aged but no matter how many times I've seen it, I still laugh at this movie. I know that it's quite predictable at times, especially after you've watched other movies with similiar plots/scripts. But it's still one of those films that I watch e every time I see it on cable. :) Good family movie that can bring up some laughter in the process.
