Well, to look directly at him, we'd need those funky glasses that seem like they're made partially from tin-foil, but that'd still constitute an upgrade
This is one of the first films I watch that stars Lacey Chabert, and I gotta say, she's talented. She nails this role, just as she has in everything else I've seen her in. Here, she plays a nurse with a strained relationship with her parents. She works at the ER, and after her father passes away when she was with another patient, things go south. Not long after, she finds herself working for a middle-aged terminal woman, and that changes her perspective completely. Every acting performance is great. The humor, whilst a lot of it is dark comedy, has a real heart and is, quite frankly, utterly hilarious. Every character is well-written, credible and consistent. The supernatural aspects tend to be *really* obvious(in spite of them not being, you know, a big, bright light or a burning bush)... can someone please explain to me why there are groups of people who believe that if something from the beyond were to send us messages, they'd be clues like you find in a crime story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or Agatha Christie? This does get its message across nicely, and there certainly are more obnoxious movies out there that try to get you to embrace the father, son and holy spirit. Editing and cinematography are good. So is pacing. There is a little disturbing content, and an intense sequence or two. I recommend this to fans of those who made it, and/or of the genre drama. 7/10
