Movie Info

Ted Morgan has been treading water for most of his life. After his wife leaves him, Ted realizes he has nothing left to live for. Summoning the courage for one last act, Ted decides to go home and face the people he feels are responsible for creating the shell of a person he has become. But life is tricky. The more determined Ted is to confront his demons, to get closure, and to withdraw from his family, the more Ted is yanked into the chaos of their lives. So, when Ted Morgan decides to kill himself, he finds a reason to live. (C) Anchor Bay Films

Critic Reviews for Just Before I Go

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Anchored by a nicely understated performance by Seann William Scott, "Just Before I Go" effectively juggles a wealth of genuine, at times profound, emotion with quite a bit of nutty-raunchy humor.

April 23, 2015 | Full Review…

Lurches along a wobbly line between salacious comic nastiness and nauseating sentimentality.

April 23, 2015 | Full Review…

Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom. The former "Friends" star clearly wanted something special, but sadly the result is ... this.

April 23, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Courteney Cox's directorial debut "Just Before I Go" is a "Garden State" retread in which filthy jokes gradually cede ground to sentimental slush.

April 22, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A serious misfire.

April 20, 2015 | Full Review…

At times, it's hilarious, but the tone changes so much that it becomes hard to keep up.

Audience Reviews for Just Before I Go

The low critic scores for this film are not deserved, in my opinion. "Just Before I Go" is a completely serviceable rom-com, competently acted and pleasantly entertaining. I see neither ineptitude in the director, nor inordinate raunchiness in the telling (despite a chronically masturbating character!). The film is not clever or innovative, but it also is not bad. I disagree with those who propose "Just Before I Go" has the potential to become a cult classic because there isn't anything truly unique, edgy or shocking about it. It's just a nice film with some off-color humor that tries but comes up short in addressing some serious issues. If I had paid $12 for a ticket to see this film at the theater on date night, I would feel I had gotten my money's worth and exactly what I expected.
