As we learn more about how human kind is evolving, I think this movie has more relevance as time continues on. I just had the chance to view the original starring Ellen Burstyn, and the original did have a lot of heart but I also felt that Dana Delaney's portrayal of someone coming to terms with this newfound ability was equally realistic and more pertinent to today. I love Rita Moreno as her always positive and encouraging friend. The only part of the movie I could have done without was the over dramatic scene in the hospital. I saw this on TV when it first aired in 1999 and wanted to purchase a copy of it immediately, but was unable to find any for sale. I definitely preferred this versions ending more than the original.
