Learning to Cherish the Things You Have

Author: Troye Dchgl from Hong Kong
22 May 2012

True, it is a story about a man learning a profound lesson through a trek of uncommon experiences. True, these experiences are somewhat supernatural and explained in the miracle-from-God cheesy style. And true, such experiences are by no means innovative and can be considered a fairy-tale enchantment. Still, it is a little gem that illuminates in a miniature yet successful way, thanks to its essential message, its gradual and managed delivery and its surprisingly good transition from what feels like misplaced pieces of chaos to a complete conclusion with an apt reflection.

The start of the film is the end of the film, though nothing is revealed (nothing but the message that it is going to be a family film classified within the usual formula and that it will end happily). The lessons learned and the process are indeed experienced through watching the story that fills the gap. Rich starts as a disoriented mid-aged man who has lost his purpose in life and prays in the hopes of being someone else, anyone other than himself, and for your convenience, indeed, what he gets is what he wishes for. The twist is that it happens uncontrollably. Rich begins to be able to control different individual, some seemingly being predetermined, while others feel completely random. Through stepping into others' shoes and viewing with different eyes, Rich slowly learns and grasps the meaning in life, along with other significant messages about family and love, and his marriage most noticeably. He decidedly turns his disadvantage into determination and strives for a new life and a place back to his family whom he misses. As the transitions between different living beings increase and the randomness seems to set in, a sense of unconstrained chaos arises, causing the film to be slightly off its track, but it is ultimately satisfying to see a nice conclusion and relation and at least some degree of relevance in the things and ideas involved.

The performances are mediocre but in no way hinder the development of the plot line and the display of message. The closure has the ability to strengthen the film and reinforce ideas, and conclude in a satisfying style and in a proper tone. All in all, the story is organized well and everything has the closure it deserves. Amid the silliness there are quite a few heartfelt and hilarious moments that adds a foundation of sentiments to this well-developed indie production.

The secret ingredient

Author: sohan_andrei from Romania
6 June 2012

This movie, in its own simple way, is way better than a lot of the box office titles out there, that cost a lot of money, but leave you with an emptiness inside. I loved this movie! It has all the ingredients to be just another cheesy, saw-it-all-before type of film, but it somehow overcomes all this. There is something that saves it from mediocrity. I cannot tell you what, but I can tell you that I felt it. My humble 2 cents is that this movie is one of the best family movies I've seen in a lot of time. It has something that the movies seem to have lost nowadays: it has heart in it. It doesn't take itself to seriously, but it somehow delivers this powerful message to its audience. I really hope to see this kind of movies again!

simple, nice movie.

Author: Sanjo Antony from Dubai, United Arab Emirates
14 June 2012

Once a while we all need an inspiration. Me Again is a movie which talks about a person who hates his life with thoughts about what he missed in his life.

A little dream\divine intervention makes him feel the need to go back home and to a realization that he is better off with what he has is his life.

Watch the movie only when you are in mood for little inspiration. A simple plot is well presented and thus worth watching. The movie will surely get us appreciate the little things we have in our life while we whine about the missing.

Its not such a wonderful life!!

Author: Binoy Santhakumar (bonzybino) from India
28 May 2012

"Its a wonderful life" would have been a much better title for the movie, "ME AGAIN" sounds inane and weird. The movie also mentions about "Its a wonderful life", let alone being hugely inspired by it. So we have the lead character who finds Life unfair as in so many other movies - the only novel thing about this is that the protagonist is a Pastor - and finds out a miracle way to know others' lives and how things in life ought to be balanced. Finally a Happy Ending blessed by God, we all feel rejuvenated, animated and excited about life albeit having watched a badly made movie. In fact, felt more like watching many movies at a time - from Bruce Almighty to Don Camillo.

The plot so loose, the screenplay so glossy and the background score quite irksome at times. It never launches well with some mediocre acting and badly executed shots which mars the movie experience right from the beginning. The ending was awesome for a movie which niggled throughout, the "hero's" speech stands out which saves the movie from hitting rock bottom. Thoroughly disappointed that the movie ends up a lackluster product despite having the thread which was destined to be great. 6/10

Quantum leap

Author: mats420 from New Zealand
2 June 2012

The beginning of the movie was good, funny moments through out... BUT this movie is basically quantum leap, the main character rich is too similar to sam and his best friend is just like al and half the story line is straight out of quantum leap episodes, even the actor that plays the angel in this movie is the same actor who plays god in the last episode of quantum leap. plus not as good as quantum leap so not really impressed. The scenes in this movie where rich has "leaped" into female characters is just like quantum leap. The dialog between rich and tony is just like sam and al. If you like recycled movies then you will probably like this, i would recommend this movie to anyone that hasn't seen quantum leap, then i would suggest that you watch quantum leap as it is far better than this movie. The last ten minutes of this movie was the worst religious rant i have ever heard in a while.
