In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastic story of five mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality blurs as the tale advances.
A newlywed with the ability to communicate with the earthbound spirits of the recently deceased overcomes skepticism and doubt to help send their important messages to the living and allow the dead to pass on to the other side.

According to Julia Roberts, her costumes in the film were both heavy and almost impossible to move in. At one point while shooting, Roberts turned rather quickly to her co-star Nathan Lane during a take, and pulled a muscle. Needless to say, they had to stop shooting. Lane asked if Roberts was all right, and she responded with, "I think I just ripped something." See more »

That's very kind of you.
Just one bite for good fortune. To the fairest of them all.
Age before beauty. It's important to know when you've been beaten. Yes?

I went to IMDb to read reviews of this movie before seeing it. What I read was not too encouraging so I had fairly low expectations. Boy, was I surprised to find myself smiling throughout the film while my daughter and I nudged each other to comment on how much we liked it! Julie Roberts and Nathan Lane make a stellar duo, and every role was so well cast. Conceptually, I was thrilled with the visuals, the costuming and computer animated sets and special effects. Any changes made to the original story were in my opinion quite clever. The surprise Bollywood number at the end cinched it for me! Take your family to see this movie!
