Josh leaves his advertising career at its peak, everyone wants either to be him or to have him. A car accident will leave his daughter in a strange coma and when everyone has given up she starts communicating with him, or is he going mad?
Final film of Pete Postlethwaite. It was originally planned that Postlethwaite would have a larger role, but when director Nick Hamm saw how ill he was, he wrote him "a new role that allowed them to film around [his] physical needs and abilities... a very funny, ridiculous part". Three months later Postlethwaite came in to do voice work on the film. Hamm later commented: "It was very apparent when I saw him at that moment that there was no way that this guy was ever going to go on screen or stage again." See more »

A word to the wise from an old man before you go. Remember only this: the measure of a man is what's left when fame falls away... oh, and another thing: get as much sex as you can!

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie! I had heard that this movie was weird and I had read about it that many was disappointed, but I don't understand it at all. I think it was a really good movie. Not even a minute I got bored and the story managed to keep me interested through the whole movie. In other reviews I have read that you have to be a bit older so that you have experienced the time when U2 was more popular than today but I don't agree at all. I'm fifteen and of course I know who U2 are but not in details. Maybe it's not the funniest comedy but it still laughed and it absolutely lives up to it's expectations in the comedy area and overall I really think this was a very good movie with good actors and I loved the music in it. If you are not sure either to watch this or not I absolutely recommend it, regardless of the age!
