Is he going to make a difference and follow his life goal? Written by

I always thought death would be different. I expected a great wave of realization to sweep over me - suddenly the meaning of life would be answered along with every other question I ever had - but there was nothing to realize. I was dead.

This Movie was Horrible, (read entire review) the ending made me cry non stop. my bf thought one of my family members died. I Really loved this movie I haven't cried that much from a movie since watching Les miserables. I was kidding about it being horrible. 2 thumbs up. absolutely fantastic. And as a Glee fan I loved seeing Chris Colfer be this smart ass writer. And Rebel Wilson Fantastic as always. But seriously I'm still sobbing as i write this. I knew he died in the beginning but after watching the sequence of events that lead up to it, I was heart broken. When Carson's(Chris Colfer) mother called his phone repeatedly after the news of his death i yelled at the screen telling her to stop. because it was too painful for her to call and get no response time after time. Devastating lost
