Rating:
R
Dead Like Me: Life After Death is a 2009 comedic fantasy drama directed by Stephen Herek. The film is based off the Showtime series Dead Like Me. The film is set five years in the future from when the series ended. The Seattle, Washington, based reapers are still reeling over their recently departed head reaper, Rube Sofer (Mandy Patinkin). He has been replaced by Cameron Kane (Henry Ian Cusick), but fellow reapers, Daisy Adair (Sarah Wynter), Mason (Callum Blue) and George Lass (Ellen Murth) are not happy with their replacement. Cameron is more interested in the business side of being a reaper and not the recently dead. To deal with their disappointment, Daisy and Mason have taken to drinking heavily and slacking on their reaping duties. George is trying to bond with her still living sister, Reggie (Britt Mckillip). The trying relationship between the two sisters is only made worse by George's job.

    I thought as a pretty devoted fan of the show I would like the movie despite the bad reviews... I was wrong. I was so disappointed. The change of actress for Daisy, Daisy Adair is insulting, Mason's character de-evolved which was really disappointing and the Kane character doesn't seem to have any real purpose.



    The only saving grace of the movie is that George's storyline with her family and at Happy Time is wrapped up rather nicely. But if you really loved the show, don't watch the movie, no matter how much closure you think you might need.



    **SPOILER ALERT**



    No wrap up of Daisy's sadness she tries so hard to hide, no further development of her friendship with Mason, Roxy is just left stagnant as if she hasn't grown or developed at all in her new career as a police officer. Kane is ridiculous, I thought for a while he might be from "downstairs" and was purposely crating havoc with the reaping, but no, nothing that interesting. And the "killing" of him was just absurd and frankly sickening. I wish I could delete this movie from my memory and go back to just wishing for more. As they say, be careful what you wish for.moreless
