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: All the weeping and hugging the characters do can't make up for the film's fatal lack of texture and psychological nuance. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

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

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.

Beautiful Love Story

What Dreams May Come is one movie that is nothing like all the other fairy tale/ Dis' cartoon , Hollywood love story. This film is unique to itself. The love story that drives this film can be appreciated by both woman and men of all. This film really encompasses real human emotion and life, the good and bad, the evil and grace that is a part of any marriage or relationship between two people that love each other. The story is so beautiful and the visual aspect of this film is so incredible and beautiful too, even the scenes that required a very dark and depressing set. I love this film and every time I watch it I realize how lucky I am and that I have a husband that loves me that much in return. If you are an art enthusiast than you will love this film, the color, the art, the backdrops, sets, and so so so much more.
