Plot Summary

Academy Award® winners Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding, Jr. embark on a supernatural journey beyond the realm of mortality in this visually stunning and unforgettable epic. After Chris Nielsen (Williams) dies in an accident, he tries to remain close to his beautiful mortal wife, Annie (Annabella Sciorra). With the friendly spirit (Gooding, Jr.) assigned to guide him, he begins to adapt to his new state of being in a setting that can only be described as heavenly. But when his distraught wife takes her own life, she is banished to an eternal damnation. Chris vows to find her so they can share eternity together, but no one has ever succeeded in rescuing a soul from such a horrific fate. With the help of his heavenly friends, Chris sets out on the most perilous and harrowing journey of his life, or afterlife: a quest for everlasting love that will take him to hell and back!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: If the film's morose sentimentality sidesteps ludicrousness, it's also not very dramatic. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: A heaping serving of metaphysical gobbledygook wrapped in a physically striking package. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A visual feast not to be passed up and bound to pack an emotional punch for many viewers! – David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: In both concept and execution, they testify to painfully banal sensibilities. – Susan Stark, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

this is my favorite movie of all time

One of the best films of all time

This film is unique in its perspective and its imagination. Beautiful, awe-inspiring visuals add to its greatness. Robin Williams' performance is powerful in this film, and obviously, a departure from his reputation as a comedian. Cuba Gooding Jr. also delivers an astonishing performance in a supporting role.


You really do have to have an imagination to enjoy this movie. This movie in it's idea is pretty far fetched but I think a wonderful idea. It breaks your heart over and over and yet somehow makes you believe in the impossible and the amazing. When it comes to the underworld, it is an interesting idea that it your life gone wrong. I really love the idea that heaven is the happiest place that you could be and then a communal area for everyone to come together. It also reaffirms my faith that some people really do belong together, whether or not you want to call that soulmates. It is a beautiful heartbreaking story that is uplifting throughout but mostly in the end when they are all together. One of my favorites of all time. Again it may not be some's forte but it really is right up my ally. I love that there is beauty and chance in all things.
