All of your life is on videotape—or perhaps DVD—to make it easier on your prosecutor and defense attorney at Judgement City to randomly access a few episodes to show whether you made the most of the life you just completed. If you didn't make the most of that life, you will be sent back to try again and again until you do get it right. And the court must be taking an advance peek at that life tape. Posh accommodations go to those who look like they will merit moving up to citizen of the universe—like Julia who falls for Daniel, whose quarters have no ambiance at all.

Film Journal 2020 (113 movies items)

"So this is what an Albert Brooks -movie is like, huh? Sardonic punchlines that function as surprising answers to simple questions served by people occasionally a bit too good for the parts they're playing. Though I really dug the world in this movie (though it feels a bit silly for these higher beings to expect humans to learn from their past experiences when they literally wipe them off their minds), the characters didn't really grab me in any particular way. Streep is a bit too swooning over B"

"First watched 8/22/2016 An interesting take on the afterlife blended with some solid comedy and drama with a nice uplifting message certainly worth a watch :) Also, I found Brook's and Streep's characters to be very likable! "
