When you are successful in business you are successful at all?
This movie tells the story of Calvin Carter (Steven Weber), a successful businessman owner of some shopping stores in America, that has to solve a deep question of his life (is he really successful?), he dies and wake up in this search for answers, but he has only 12 days to do it following the rules told by a Magical Nurse called Angie (Molly Shanon).
This movie is entertaining and gives you a good lesson for life, great to see with family and learn somethings about ethics and family values.
The main aspect that takes away 5 stars to this movie is its lack of originality, it seems as a combination of Groundhog Day (1993 with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell), The Family Man (2004 with Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni) and A Christmas Carol, the Charles Dickens Story of the three ghosts represented in the movie Scrooge (1951 with Alastair Sim), Scrooged (1988 with Bill Murray) and in Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983 Disney with Mickey Mouse), among others film resemblances.
An entertaining movie to see with family and spend a good time!, and learn something really useful for life; but nothing original.
