Storyline

Death is training his son in the art and responsibilities of the family business. His son does well until he's sent out on his own to claim an accident victim. Instead, he's asked by a friend of the dying man to help with CPR. Taken aback, he assents, the dying man is resuscitated, and Death's son is in the doghouse with dad. Enraged, pop gives his son 24 hours to deliver a corpse, so the young man sets out to ice the man who asked him for help earlier that day. Junior's target is a young actor, Tom, going through opening night and loved by Sarah, a rather histrionic young woman. A near-Death experience awaits them all as Junior comes of age.

Ignoring my ulterior motives, this was pretty good
27 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, yes, I have ulterior motives. I am obsessed with Cillian Murphy. He is gorgeous, and if my book ever gets published and made into a movie, I'm drafting him to play my villain.

That being said...I loved this film. It was adorable, funny, and lovable. Death has a very cheery cell phone ring.

The other main guy (the one who wasn't Cillian Murphy) looks exactly like Stevie Ray Dallimore, even though I know he isn't. The two women were appreciatively annoying, but that kind of added to the movie's charm, in a way.

But seriously people. Who cares? It's Cillian Murphy! You have to admit, he's adorable when sitting on the therapist's couch, talking earnestly. I just want to kidnap him and hide him in my closet so I could pet him and hug him.

OK, I admit it, I have ulterior motives. But please...give this one a chance.
