Goofs

When Joe is walking down the hall to the nurse after seeing the dead man go into the room, the elevator behind the nurse opens, but in the next shot, it's closed. This was because of a deleted scene in which Joe's dead wife was supposed to appear in the elevator. See more »

Just Right
6 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is an awesome movie. It is just right for Kevin Costner. If I had a doctor like him, I would actually go to see one. The story is touching and beautiful. I love it from beginning to end. I wish others could appreciate this film as much as everybody I know, including myself, did. I'm not a real fan of spooky movies, but this was different. It was hauntingly beautiful. I would recommend seeing this on a cold, cloudy day, snuggling with your heart's desire.
