Storyline

Groomed by her overly ambitious mother, Anabelle is on the road to winning the Miss Texas Rose tiara when she dies tragically during a pageant. Her death lands her on the embalming table of Elvis, an embittered young man whose sense of family duty and love for his ailing father keep him from following his dreams. When Anabelle is miraculously resurrected on Elvis' embalming table, the two unexpectedly connect and sparks fly. With the help of each other and Elvis' father, they discover love, freedom and happiness as the real world and their own demons threaten to force them apart. Written by biggoldbird

Goofs

When Annabelle is eating breakfast in the kitchen of the funeral home, her pink hoodie is zipped up. When she steps out onto the porch a few moments later to go home, the pink hoodie is now completely unzipped and fully open. Just a few seconds later, once Elvis decides to let Annabelle stay at the funeral home for a while, he shows her to an upstairs bedroom, and as she looks in the closet her pink hoodie is once again fully zipped up as it had been before she started to leave the funeral home.

An excellent movie
3 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie made my wife cry (several times) and I thought about it (the movie) for several days afterward. We enjoyed it very much. So did everyone else at the showing (which was sold out). The film has an engaging story, happy ending, beautiful photography, great title, interesting setting (a mortuary without being gross)) and good actors. But it was also "different". The story in particular was thoughtful and well-written and, on its own, kept everyone engaged as the protagonists went from misguided misery to ignorant bliss to suspenseful drama, to . . . . I particularly liked Anabelle (beautiful and seemingly transparent acting), the mortician's father (deceptively sly in a positive fashion) and some of the "spare" dialog (which is hard to write). The mortician's devotion to his father was also touching. All in all, I strongly recommend the movie.
