Just Like Heaven (2005)
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Romance
This is a very sweet romantic movie that is perfect for those lazy days watching with friends 🙂 . This is a pleasant story to follow that is surprisingly very captivating from beginning to the end. There are a few emotional moments in this story that may not be as strong as others in this genre but it is enough. There are plenty of surprises and twists for this easy to follow storyline that help keep it entertaining 🙂 . For example, I loved it when we learnt more about what may have happened to Elizabeth and how she is connected to David. The romance between Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon) and David (Mark Ruffalo) is sweet, charming and believable 🙂 . I loved their first meeting and how their animosity at the beginning was very comical. I especially loved the scene where Elizabeth is annoying David singing “Tomorrow” 🙂 . The addition of the psychic Darryl (Jon Heder) is fine and worked well with the story and Abby (Dina Spybey-Waters) was quite funny 🙂 . I enjoyed the beginning scene which gives us a hint of what Elizabeth’s life was like and does introduce the tone of the movie well. I also loved the small addition of the magic /other worldly stuff such as the niece being more aware than normal (when you watch it you will know 😛 ) . The ending is great and kind of has a fairytale feel to the overall movie. This story is a tad predicable near the end but I liked it originality at the beginning and reason for these characters to meet 🙂 . Overall, this is a sweet, entertaining and fantastic movie that is great for anyone who loves romantic comedies with a touch of something different 😀 . I would recommend this movie and would happily watch again 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
