Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for *you*, there's 1,000 or 3,000, or 10... So much time, you can bathe in it. So much time, you can waste it. But for some of us, there's only today, and what you do today matters - in the moment, and maybe into infinity... But I didn't know any of that... Until right before I fell.

Sometimes it takes awhile for comedy classic theme to become an inspiration for a takeoff that has as much potency and emotional appeal as the original. So is the case with Before I Fall using Bill Murray's comedy classic Groundhog Day (1993) repetition of "the same day." Too often movies rip off the plot of a great movie with cheaper variations of the same theme without much originality. I can't even remember most of "the same day" movies. What makes Before I Fall so special is that it takes "the same day" and makes it its own, just like the poster in the movie which tells us to be true to ourselves in living life. So much crap happens when we don't.
The plot of this movie is such that its really difficult to describe without giving away the major twist. Except hopefully one can infer the overall plot by indirectly mentioning another movie that hopefully few have seen and may want to see both simultaneously if that were possible. But another potent and emotionally compelling movie with a resonating theme is Jennifer Love Hewitt's If Only (2004).
For an alternative relief one might also watch afterwards the comedy romance My Girlfriend's Boyfriend (2010) or Brad Pitt's character in Meet Joe Black (1998), or the delightful live-action/animation Run, Lola Run (1998), or the parallel plots in Sliding Doors (1998).
What's valuable about this movie is its coming of age story that offers us the important lesson about how we effect others and the value of living life to the fullest.
