Audience Reviews for Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven

  • Oct 02, 2009
    I think this movie TRIED to be encouraging and uplifting but it was incredibly depressing. First of all, God's name was maybe mentioned TWICE and the whole idea of heaven is being in the presence of God... literally "meeting your Maker." I didn't like how it was "everyone has their own heaven." Also, how could a soul be in more than one place at a time if someone else's heaven was different but had the same people in it as others? It makes no sense. I realise this is a figment of someone's imagination and meeting five people in heaven is completely fictional, but what upsets me is if someone saw this and believed it, instead of believing the Truth. Not once was ever mentioned HOW Eddie got to heaven... didn't mention his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in fact, mentioned that he even questioned if God knew he existed. I didn't like it. I watched the whole thing, but kept hoping it would be over soon because it was depressing me. The only good thing about it though was all my thinking about heaven... and how it is not far away from each of us. Life is short and we never know when it will end. We need to make the most of our time here on earth before we go. The part about Eddie's wife dying got me very teary eyed because I thought about what would happen if my husband suddenly took ill and left me alone on earth. I couldn't bear it. Just the thought made me very upset. I think the real heaven is going to be streets of gold, crystal clear water, the tree of life, God Himself laughing with us and answering all our unanswered questions we had on earth, our loved ones by our side eating great food and talking all eternity long about anything and everything and just pure joy forever. But the only way to get there is to accept Christ's death as payment for our sins.

    I knew nothing about the movie going in didnt know there was a book etc etc... just saw it because someone had it. In the end, its a good story, at times entertaining. But not great. I'm not sure if the book is so much better, but the movie is only "ok". It does sell good morals & ideas about life, but its mired in a mediocre film.
