Hedy: Do you think that when we die, we have to wear the clothes we died in for all of eternity?
Buck: No way. I bet we get those kickin' white robes like you see in the old cartoons.
Hedy: I look awful in white. Maybe Emma would let me borrow some sweats.
Buck: I bet you get a sweet-ass harp too.
Hedy: Hmmmm...

Great Surprise
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was surfing through Netflix, where this movie has a nearly 5-star rating, and watched because of that (very few Netflix movies rank that high). I didn't even read the preview.

I figured it was a comedy because David Cross is in it, but he seemed at first to be playing such a straight role that I thought this was a drama. It ALMOST lost me until the moment the characters learned they were all about to die, at which point I couldn't stop laughing!

It begins with several couples talking about inane and stupid things, much like an episode of Seinfeld. Just go with it because your reward is to come.

It's as if Jerry, Elaine, George, Newman and Kramer are facing the end of the world, joined by Elaine's new boyfriend, David Cross. These characters all face death with the same focus on petty minutiae in their final hours as the Seinfeld cast would. It's hilarious!
