My name is Jack McCall. If you can hear me, what you're listening to is not the sound of my voice. It's the sound of my inner voice, the one inside my head. I'd like to talk to you, but I can't. Because if I say just one more sentence out loud... I'll die.

It goes without saying that Eddie Murph hasn't been at his best since Beverley Hills Cop. This movie changes that. Apart from a little of his over the top comedy, this is a real tear jerker. It is very much like Click in that it makes the viewer think about his life, how they treat others and just how much of our life is wasted. Well acted, well conceived and a great heart warming movie that men and women can enjoy. My wife loved it, I loved it. More like this please. Try not to pick a at little details of 'how' but enjoy the 'why' Great movie. 9/10 best movie i've seen this year! Bring tissues and popcorn, turn down the lights (so the missus can't see the tears ;)
