Trivia

When Lainie and Pete are in the basement playing Scrabble, a washing machine is working in the background. It's a frontload washer and you can see suds halfway up the front glass. Over the course of the brief scene, the suds seem to be filling up the machine until it looks like it's going to overflow and provide a 'slapstick' moment, but the scene ends before that happens. In normal operation, using the correct amount of the correct detergent, you never see sudsing like that in a frontload washer. Someone obviously decided that the only way to see the machine working in the background was to really get suds going. See more »

I Got Some Satisfaction! Because I Got Some! Because I Got Some!
20 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

A reporter, Lanie Kerrigan, interviews a psychic homeless man (Shalhoub) for a fluff piece about a football game's score. Instead, he tells her that her life has no meaning, and is going to end in just a few days.

The moral of this story has been told ever single time from "It's a Wonderful Life", to "Last Holiday", even to "Click". Each of these movies have always won me over because I love moral stories and I certainly love this movie!

Sure, you've seen this so many times before. Sure, it's filled with clichéd, Sure, it's predictable what's going to happen before it happens. But it's a feel good movie. It puts a smile on your face when it ends. Don't go on the movie too hard.

I loved the performance by Angelina Jolie. The supporting characters give us some laughs along the way, although the film isn't too funny but more like a drama. I like the score for the film. I liked the film a lot but not as much as I thought it would be. Still, it was a pretty good film if you like moral movies. "Live everyday like it will be your last."
