When Tommy reaches for the DVD of the earlier version of "Heaven Can Wait", it has been misfiled in the "F" section along with one other film: "The Nest". That is the English name of director Florent-Emilio Siri's 2002 film The Nest (2002). See more »

The beginning and end credits take place as a virtual camera moves through a digitally replicated set with frozen action. This then fades into and out of the live action at the beginning and end of the film. See more »
I went to see this movie last night for the only reason, it was a free premiere ticket, and I had not much else to do. I was therefore pleasantly surprised by the movie. Artistically and dialogue wise this movie is lacking, except for the first scene, but this is to be expected from a Bruce Willis film. As a an action/thriller the movie hits the mark. It is noir, gritty, violent, and similar to the director's, Florent Siri, style used for his 2002 film, "The Nest". Several very cool shots by the cinematographer, tie this movie together. This is a great movie to go watch on a Saturday night with friends. You will be thoroughly entertained by Willis, who is best suited for this type of role.
