If the film's morose sentimentality sidesteps ludicrousness, it's also not very dramatic.

Here's what's wrong with giant movie screens: You can fill them with extreme close-ups of Robin Williams' face!

Dripping with bold visual aplomb and sugar-coated mysticism, Vincent Ward's film is a staunch romantic's romance for those who believe-or want to believe-in eternal love.

Few films delight the eye the way Vincent Ward's What Dreams May Come does!

A heaping serving of metaphysical gobbledygook wrapped in a physically striking package.

All the weeping and hugging the characters do can't make up for the film's fatal lack of texture and psychological nuance.
