Movie Info

The strict reaper rules take a backseat to moving souls quickly and enjoying an existence without consequence when George and her colleagues get a new boss in this feature continuation of the cancelled television series Dead Like Me. There's a new boss in town, and that means a whole new way of operating for George and her fellow reapers. At first it seems like a blessing to see the rules relaxed a bit, but before long the gang discovers that death can be just as complicated as life. Now, while George's friends are all seduced by the allure of success, money, and fame, she makes the mistake of revealing her true identity to her living family. Whoever said death was easy, anyway? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dead Like Me: Life After Death

    Good straight to DVD film that concludes the series Dead Like Me. Being a fan of the series, I found this film to be enjoyable yet flawed. The biggest problem I had with the film was the fact that Laura Harris didn't reprise her role as Daisy Adair. The actress playing the character is horrible and really doesn't do the character justice. The film had its moments, and focused on aspects I found to be very good. The story with Reggie, George's sister and her trouble with dealing with the imminent death of her secret boyfriend, and how George tries to prevent her sister from killing herself and seeing that she's got plenty to offer. For me that was the highlight of the film, and it made the film better even with all its imperfections. I thought that the filmmakers could have focused more on that part of the film instead of rushing it. Dead Like Me: Life After Death is something new and is an average ending to the previous two seasons. I liked it, but I felt it could have been better. As a fan of the show, I didn't think this was the worst ever, but I felt that the script could have used a few rewrites here and there to get the good ideas out. There were a few good ideas on-screen, but it has a lot of wasted potential in being a great film. The film certainly is better than most straight to DVD outings, but like with every other fan of the show, I didn't like the absence of Rube, the new Daisy and the new boss Cameron. The whole plot with Reggie was wonderful, and it was really the heart of the film. A good little flick, but it does leave a lot to be desired. Like I said there a few redeeming aspects of the film, unfortunately it's nowhere near as good as the series. However for what it is, it's worth seeing.

    A nice wrap up to the series, especially between George and her sister. I don't like some of the things that the writers did here, though. Daisy was always a superficial character, but they basically turn her into a hooker here, with replacement Sarah Wynter (from 24, I normally like her, but she's obnoxious here unfortunately). The absence of Rube in this film, especially since his backstory never was explained in the show, is very problematic, as is his replacement with Henry Ian Cusick from Lost, who just doesn't work here. I also don't like how the presence of Cusick's character seemingly materializes the Reaper characters in an exaggerated fashion, with everyone except George dropping their beliefs and morals almost immediately after meeting him. Though they weren't perfect, the characters in the show most likely wouldn't do this, and honestly, since the show was cancelled before it could fully get off the ground, everyone except George wasn't developed enough for this to work.

    Dead Like Me: Life After Death is a fun and witty comedy, but has issues delivering a compelling story. This feature follows a group of grim reapers as they shirk their responsibilities and deal with the consequences. Several of the original series cast members have returned, including Ellen Muth, Callum Blue, and Britt McKillip, and are joined by a few new actors, including Sarah Wynter and Henry Ian Cusick. Unfortunately, the story isn't really congruent with the television series, as the characters have already dealt with most of these issues previously. The cast changes also disruptive the flow from series to feature film. Still, the film manages to recapture some of the clever wit and insightfulness that the show was known for. Dead Like Me: Life After Death is a fun and entertaining film, even though it has problems delivering something fresh and new.

    When you die you might get to go to "the next place" (wherever that is) or you might get to be a reaper, shepherding the newly dead to where they're going. A fairly bland follow-up to the two-season TV series, only for completionists.
