About the Movie

Armed with his genius as a biologist/physician, Dr. Wolper is intent on mastering the process of creating life... specifically in the form of his dead wife. All that's standing in his way is the university, the faculty, the laws of nature and about 20 local ordinances. But just when he is about to unravel the mystery of life, a sexy young assistant (Mariel Hemingway) moves in and captures his heart. Now, the only life that comes unraveled is his own.

Sweet old movie

This is a sweet old movie about a guy who is having trouble saying goodbye when his wife dies. It's a lighthearted view of a sad topic. It's not spectacular but it's not lame either. It's just a nice movie. Don't know if a guy would like it or not.

Great Movie

This movie was never big in the theaters, but turns out we missed a great one. Pulls at your heart strings and brings you to the floor with laughter. The music is fantastic as well.

Fun Movie

I'm a big fan of Peter O'Toole. This was a great movie. It was quite funny and very moving at times. I think anyone would like it and Peter was great! Take the time to check this out.
