Chris Nielsen dies in an accident, and enters Heaven. But when he discovers that his beloved wife Annie has killed herself out of grief over the loss, he embarks on an afterlife adventure to reunite with her.
Annette Bening auditioned for the role of Annie Nielsen.
Annie, I'm here babe, I still exist.
When Chris causes the pen to write "I still exist," the insert shot of her examining the writing is a different written page.
Disclaimer after the end credits: "The persons and events in this production are fictitious. No similarity to actual persons, living, dead or reincarnated is intended or should be inferred."
The version released in Thailand (and most likely in some other countries) both theatrically and on DVD has a song 'Beside You' that plays over the first portion of the end credits. It is sung by "Simply Red' and credited to Mark Snow and Michael Kaman. The credits go on to say that Chris and Annie's theme, which plays on the credits of the American release and throughout the body of both versions, is based on variations of 'Beside You' by Mark Snow and Michael Kaman. However, the American credits say that Chris and Annie's Theme is based upon variations of 'Beside You' written by Martin Fulterman and Michael Kaman.
