Self indulgent tripe

This film is a straightforward exposť of the paradise as imagined by popes, and the writer of the book. It is over the top but soo beautiful. The story is a bit lacking and some bits are ridiculous, like how the doctor was killed. Most stories of the tv show Ghost Whisperer were much better and smart. Here I must say that Rolling Stone was so wrong to call it the worse tv show just because the main actress is not their preconceived idea of a gifted regarding ghosts.

Surreal visuals and Robin Williams cant make up for the stagnant story.

Remarkably charming and beautiful movie. Special effects are indeed incredible and riveting, no surprise it took Oscar for special effects. Of course it's overly sentimental and at times mushy but sometimes this is exactly what you need in a film. The cast is solid.

I dont generally like cliche soulmate type movies, but this one was good. Many aspects can be discussed... Lifes twists can beat us down to very dark places, recognizing what you have in front of you (Gooding's character), the depths to which we will go to for those we love, faith, thinking outside the box and the overall creativity of the film.

The depictions of heaven can be a bit tidious, but the same cannot be said for hell, which I thought Sciorra and Williams absolutely nailed. Sciorra's life in this film, if you are one that can empathize witn movie characters, was brutal. Williams' character tries to overcome her endless despair. The ending is a slight twist, but a good one.

Cant quite put the words into play as to what it is lacking... I can say that the second half of the movie was much more thought provoking for me. So I give it a 4/5.

What Dreams May Come is a visually gorgeous tear-jerker with a bit of wonky writting and a decent performance from the leads. Definitely worth a watch ... with tissues.

This wasn't bad, even though the acting can be too over the top at times. And what kind of an angel would say to you, "Give up!?" Is he daring you to sock him in the face!?

One of my personal favorites, the story is what makes this a great movie.

As someone that doesnt believe in Heaven, I still love this movie. It sucks you in and takes you away to another world. You will cry.

Lots of script/performance issues, but very nice to look at.

Robin Williams was an incredible actor and does what he does best. This film is insanely beautiful visually and has an amazing story to tell about love. It's a bit strange watching this movie including suicide after the events of Robins own untimely death. I highly recommend this film to anyone looking for a good tear jerker.

It gets very painful to watch Robin Williams in any movie after his tragic passing. In this film, he was so lively and happy his smile is heartbreaking.

A truly great tale told in a unique and exquisite style to portray the emotion of the circumstances present in the movie, the fatal flaw however goes back to the uncoordinated cast and slow pace of events.

One flipping emo ride.

This movie is hard to categorize. Clearly it is innovative and powerful and visually stunning. And morose and sad. Visually gorgeous. And it has to affect you in some way. It affected me a lot, which I suppose means it's a good film in that it touched the audience. I didn't like HOW it affected me, and it's not something I want to watch more than once or twice. But I was impressed by it, maybe because it gives a fairly detailed conception of the afterlife. Whether you believe it or not, at least you have to give the film points for producing such a vast vision of how it might be. It's just too sad and morose for me.

I love this movie, I really do, since I believe the way heaven and hell areportrayed in the movie

This movie tries to have a good message to it, but I am way too skeptical of matters of religion to take this movie too seriously. Afterlife beliefs aside, this movie (while it was beautiful) had a lot of pacing issues and it was hard to stay interested at times. It's a good idea, but something seems to be missing.

A visual work of art with a plot that could have been balanced a little more, What Dreams May Come proves to be full of thought and beauty in all of the tragedy it presents, and with some notably great acting and sutile but gorgeous twists, there is hardly anything not to reccomend here.
