excuse me people the plot line of this movie was very well done and the sets were made that way for a reason but i have one serious question for you do you know what heaven looks like? if you do then try telling everyone else on this planet lord knows if you know we could all use the guidance. i also offer this piece of philosophy its not what things look like its how they feel. stop thinking in a materialistic point of view and look beyond yourself. and i might sound like a bible thumper and i apologize but if you ask me Mitch album wrote a great story and a great movie ensued.
you hear me people
