Elizabeth has a stressful job in the city, and she's about to give birth. Her husband Kevin appears to have some sort of blue-collar job, which is unusual, but he seems fine with his wife having a job that has more prestige and probably pays more than his.

In another world (I didn't understand this and assumed we were seeing the child's future) Milo is misbehaving when he's supposed to be lining up in the room where all the new babies go. They all appear to be young children, and as each one exits, a hand appears out of a great white light. The children are excited and happy for Milo. But Milo is too frightened of this mystery place and runs away.

Back in the "real world" Elizabeth appears to go into labor, but nothing happens and the doctor calls it Braxton-Hicks. Elizabeth and Kevin return home and find more stress, and eventually Elizabeth starts wanting more from life.

Milo, on the other hand, has caused a crisis in his world. The officials are desperate for a solution. Babies must be born in order, and no babies can be born until Milo changes his mind. In the real world, the big news story is the lack of births anywhere.

Someone must accompany Milo to the real world and show him it is not such a bad place. The perfect candidate, currently in limbo but content, needs to do good deeds to get into Heaven. That man is Elmore.

No one is supposed to leave this wonderful place. "The" door is an entrance, not an exit. The waiting room looks like a nursing home except the people are well-dressed. The desk clerk can't believe anyone would leave, but an exception has been made. "He" wants Elmore to go. And so it happens--Elmore and Milo exit "the" door into the bustling New York City.

Elmore is excited. This is the greatest city in the world! Milo is frightened and runs away. But it's not the only great city. When he was alive, Elmore loved to gamble, and Atlantic City is the paradise for gamblers. At least on the East Coast. And Anna is there to provide ... companionship.

Elmore has 72 hours to change Milo's mind, OR ELSE. And it's not going to be easy. But once no more babies are born--ever--that's the end of the human race.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth must solve her problems. One is the fact that her father abandoned her when she was young. And the description of her father sounds a lot like someone we know ...

Albert Finney does an amazing job. He has so much enthusiasm. He is the perfect blue-collar New Yorker who isn't quite perfect but who is everyone's friend.

Anton Yelchin does a good job too. Milo is just naughty enough and just appealing enough, but not overly sweet.

I didn't care much for Bridget Fonda, but she is attractive.

It was disappointing to me to see the woman I knew as Cinderella playing a bimbo. But she does a good enough job.

This movie has important lessons to teach us about family and what is really important in life. And while it has a few bad words and acknowledges that some people don't wait until marriage, it is a family movie that older children can watch. At least I think so; I can't recall if it was edited.

This movie delivers!
