In the opening narrative describing the origins of death, the writing on the jar that contains death says "Sanskrit dictionary". See more »

Goofs

The location of the action is supposed to be Seattle Wa. There is a scene in the hanger when they are eulogizing Murray the cat before launching him. A plane in the background is badged C-FZLN, which is registered in Quebec, where of course the series was filmed. It could be in Seattle, but not likely. Also it is not explained, but there are no places that a launch could take place near Seattle, too far north. See more »

Quotes

Daisy Adair: Where the hell is Rube? I need my coffee.
Roxy Harvey: People, this is hallowed ground. Show some respect.
Mason: I'm showing respect. Auf Wiedersehen, der Waffle Haus.
Daisy Adair: [Puts hand on chest] Fond farewell to a shitty, little restaurant.
Mason: Which didn't extend me any more credit,
[Holds middle finger up]
Mason: so fuck you!

Well. a BETTER send off than ShowTime fgave it..
5 February 2009 | by (Oklahoma, USA) – See all my reviews

I thought Dead Like Me was one of the... funniest.. saddest.. smartest.. and just quirkiest shows ever on the air. This film takes place, picking up 5 years later, where everyone left off.. mostly. Now the biggest complain has been the absence of Rube (Mandy Patinkin) as the boss.. a tragic loss to be sure. and the recasting of Sarah Wynter in the role of Daisy Adair, formerly filled by Laura Harris. I will only say.. not to give too much away.. but they got MOST of the cast back.. and a pretty decent.. I won't say it is a definitive conclusion, as it could be left open to more DTV films. But at least it felt there was a punctuation at the end of the sentence which had been hanging for almost half a decade.

I will be the first to admit the movie has its MAJOR problems.. but over all, rough edges and everything.. it is a pretty decent representation of what the best of the show offered, although not quite as adeptly written, or acted.. its much harder to fill in a 90 minute film with so many characters as opposed to a dozen hour episodes yearly. This does seem more done for the "fans" who've missed the show. and its still a welcome return, if not at its best.
