Goofs

  • In a closeup of the bottle of colyte laxative the prescription label says "TAKE ONE TABLET DAILY WITH 8OZ GLASS OF WATER". However, when he takes the medicine, it's a liquid not a tablet. Also the red label that says "WARNING LAXATIVE AGENT" seems to disappear the second time the bottles are all three in a row.

A winning mix of sharp comedy and touching bits that keeps the laughter -- a few tears -- flowing.

Both very funny and a bit of a tearjerker, with an on-the-money performance from Ricky Gervais.

A welcome surprise: a supernatural romantic comedy that works, graced with a cast just off-center enough to make it distinctive.
