At 45:07 when a girl in the background bumps a snowman, it rocks briefly because many of the snowmen were Styrofoam shells, open from the back, held down by cinder blocks. See more »


Howard Garvey: [24:50, in graveyard] So you're not scared at all?
Billy Kirkfield: Of stepping on dead people? No.
Howard Garvey: No, of what's gonna happen to you when you die.
Billy Kirkfield: Well, what's that supposed to mean? I'm definitely going to Heaven. My parents make me go to church and everything.
Lucas Lamb: That doesn't mean you get to go automatically. That's what my mom says,
Howard Garvey: I do get to go automatically, 'cause I'm a kid. Kids don't even have to be that good. It's like a rule.

best family film I've seen in last couple years
2 December 2011 | by bobby-derringerSee all my reviews

not for everyone -- semi sweet semi sad, some brilliant elements... and it all ends gloriously! Great job. Great story. Reminded me -- there is life, after life.

(And altho' you can't take the "things" of this world with you – You can take the person next to you…by helping them find life, after life. That's what Billy Kirkfield learns – you can take the person sitting next to you – a son, a daughter, a sister, brother – a friend, by pouring our "spirit" – our lives, into another – we can take them with us on the journey beyond this life).

Christopher Lloyd who plays a caretaker in the movie is EXCELLENT – and talks to the heroes - - 3 fifth grade boys intent on setting a world record. And he asks them how this setting a record, makes other people…happy? He tells the boys of attending a lot of funerals and that when people talk about living a good life…its not so much what we do or did that matters…as to how we did it. That being a good person may be a purpose all in itself. Being a friend – even to someone who doesn't want to be friends.

Isn't that after all what the greatest teacher of all modeled? Highly recommend. Great film.
