Hadn't watched this movie in forever. Cried like a baby from beginning to end, again. I miss you, Robin :(
@birdfish420 one of my favorites too! R.I.P. Robin, it's films like this I'll miss from you.
One of my favorites. R.I.P. Mr. Robin Williams. :'(
I was just blown away by this movie--the storyline, the visual effects, the cinematography is incredible. Making a movie about the afterlife is a daunting task, and I thought the filmmakers did an amazing job of it. The power of love can transcend even death. 10/10

well, the problem with such great movies as Minority Report or A.I. is, most people don't understand anything about movies. I'm not talking about understanding "stories", intellectuell bullshit or something. I'm talking about a real movie fan who loves Hollywood movies and which are the only movies for cinemas. (Why the hell should I go into an independent bullshit in cinema??).

Sure, these two movies by Spielberg could have been some really masterpieces and A.I. e.g. isnt one because of the bad ending. But still. Who cares? Sure, I hated the ending, but until then its still some of those great movies why you're going to cinema.
Some of it was pretty overly-sappy, and the parts with the kids were, well, overly-sappy. Also I really found the wife hard to take. But the visual inventiveness and very cool concepts bring it to a barely fresh rating.


I give this movie a 3 for the photography mainly, along with some of the dialogue and the ambition of the story, even though it never really amounted to very much. The plot is so muddled and sort of just thrown together that not only is it hard to keep track of everything... it's extremely hard to believe.

I usually have a big problem with any film regarding the afterlife... mainly because I don't believe that any film has gotten it write so far. People who die... and then live forever in eternity would never really work. Heaven would not be heaven if you lived forever... mainly because if you don't die, you can never really live... at least that is the way I think. I don't believe I would ever really be happy in a heaven where I lived forever.

The acting is somewhat decent... but the main two characters who we are expected to believe that they are soulmates just do not work well together. Their relationship is not believable at all.

The visuals are good, most of the time... some of it is a bit over the top and didn't age well. The computer graphics we see in theater now make this movie look pretty cheesy.

I wouldn't really recommend the movie to anybody. It drags on way too long, and just isn't satisfying in any way.
This movie still forces tears out of me when i see it but only when i see it alone. just a quick note...ok loki guy below me...it's "right" with an -R- not "write" as in "I like to write letters." With that said, this movie takes a new spin on the afterlife and does a good job coming through with the message that "Love has no boundries." if you like a good love story and you feel like eating a bowl of icecream and having yourself a good cry...see this. A friend expressed to me that this movie should be retitled "The Death of Snatch Adams"...after he said that i vomitted blood because i laughed so hard. SEE THIS!

Visually Stunning


After seeing What Dreams May Come, I have a new found respect for Robin Williams. Up until now, I have thought of Robin Williams as a goofy-simple minded actor. Yes, I have seen Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting. Niether of those movies affected me as much as this one did. To me, those parts could have been played by anyone, but the part of Chris Nielson was meant for Robin Williams. I think the movie wouldn't have been as good if another actor had the role. The plot was very orignal and intriguing. I am usually not a fan of magical/sci-fi types of movies. I found myself drawn to the overall feeling of joy that the movie gave you when Chris (Williams) was walking through his own heaven. Only certain movies have the ability to give me chills, and this one did.
