Living with the Dead
4 May 2002 | by (Florida-USA) – See all my reviews

I admit I was skeptical about watching this movie. The first time I saw the preview I said no way. Then the 2nd time I said ok. I am a huge Ted Danson fan and he played the part brillantly. When the movie first started I thought it was kinda slow and boring but then when I found out it was based on a true story I instantly became intrigued. I watched the entire movie as well as taped it and I am glad I did. It makes you think about things. It also makes you realize your loved ones are never really gone. I give it 8 stars out of 10. Had it not been for the slow start it would have scored a perfect 10!
