I remember this!
13 December 2002 | by (Hopewell, VA) – See all my reviews

This was an after-school special that I saw ten years ago and it still sticks with me to this day. I was only 11 when I saw it, but I think that it was what kept me alive throughout both junior high and high school. It's about this kid whose best friend dies in a car accident. Both the boys are your typical teenaged guys: horny, reckless, and immature. Trust me, things have not changed much in the last ten years.

Anyways, after the best friend dies, the friend left behind suddenly has this epiphany that life is nothing to play with and that it's precious and should be lived to the fullest. The whole point is that this movie is supposed to be preachy. Now, most teenagers would have done one of two things: A) They would have taken their friend's death as a sign to continue doing stupid crap b/c you never know when you might bite the big one OR B) Would have sank into a deep depression and eventually drank themselves to an early, but not surprising death.

This movie had every opportunity to be corny, but it wasn't to me at the time. If you show it to an 11-year-old these days, they might laugh straight in your face. However, it opened my eyes to immortality, or the lack thereof and how even a 17-year-old could die with no warning. OK, enough of the Lifetime BS! When's Final Destination 2 coming out?!
