Quotes

[first lines]
Doctor: I didn't start treating him until well after his initial contact with the virus. First case on record. Poor guy, should already be dead. And all I can do is give him something to keep his energy up, but does nothing to inhibit the illness. And I had hoped he'd hang on long enough so I could name the disease after me.

mans attempt to fulfill dying wish helps him find a family along the way
8 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film is amazingly refreshing in its heartfelt and quirky simplicity.

Mackenzie Astin is perfect; not being familiar with his work I would say, at face value, that this is his opus. Perhaps he is simply a very good actor, or perhaps one can recognize just how involved he became with this character.

Independent film these days is always searching for a hook or something that will make it sell or become a cult classic - unlike films of the past that evolved into cult status organically without the influence of Hollywood number crunchers.

The story is beautiful - all of these lonely people, "orphans," find each other and a new meaning in life through the warning of death - watch as Average Joe does things that all of us want to do (pummel perverts, kiss pretty girls, shoot...things) but like him we refrain- but Joe's outta time and it's time to let go, and find the one person he ever met that was not bound by what holds all of us back when we're scared of what might happen the next day. A noble effort from a meek man.

the rich dry humor is classic and there is a certain repetition and flow that the director chooses that i find to be quite entertaining. the other actors are great - especially the other Zeros. watch for the hilarious hotel clerks- - wonderful awkward pauses - an endearing grandma and raining cow guts.

aside for some uneven make up as Joe's health depletes - I wouldn't change a single thing from this fun and moving film.

good morning wont you get up? its a beautiful day.
