Goofs

During the dance scene at the wedding reception in the very beginning, one of the extras (who dances with a girl in a green dress) looks directly at the camera. At first you think he's looking at Bob but Bob is on the other side of the dancing and not focused on the extra. See more »

Underrated masterpeice.
13 July 2001 | by (Alexandria, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that comes along sometimes and knocks you to the floor by absolute surprise. Sad to say, this is the most underrated film I have ever seen. This is the one film that can break you down into tears every time you watch it. It has a really touching theme as well. The theme is of course, make it count, and that is exactly what Bob, Michael Keaton, does. I think the most beautiful part of the film is when Bob notifies his wife at the amusement park that it was his due date for death and that he was living on borrowed time. Living on borrowed time from the prayer he made earlier in the film. This film is one of my all time favorites and is a must-see for strong, hard hitting tear jerkers.
