Mitch Albom wrote the screenplay for this made-for-television adaptation of his best-selling story, which offers a novel perspective on life, death, and the meaning of our existence. Eddie (Jon Voight) is an elderly maintenance man who has spent most of his life keeping the rides at an amusement park in good repair; Eddie has had a hard life, sustaining a serious injury during World War II and losing his wife, and he often wonders what the purpose behind it all is. One day, Eddie is killed while trying to save a young girl who has fallen from a ride, and in the afterlife, he's greeted by five people he knew during his lifetime, who explain to him what the key moments in his life were, and what was to be learned from them. The Five People You Meet in Heaven also features Steven Grayhm (who plays Eddie as a younger man), Ellen Burstyn, Jeff Daniels, Michael Imperioli, and Callum Keith Rennie.~Mark Deming
This review is from The Five People You Meet in Heaven [DVD] 
I watched this movie 2 years ago and always wanted to buy it. When I actually bought I could believe I owned it because I have told my family about this movie before and now they can actually watch the movie and see it for theirself. It is at an amazing price and it is based on the book by Mitch Albom. You don't neccesarily have to read the book but you should if you want to learn more about the movie's story about meeting the five people. I cry every time I watch this movie and it never gets old. I guess this movie teaches you about life. I love this movie and reccomend to all my friends. If I were you I would purchase this movie beacause its a great movie to ad to your collection.
I would recommend this to a friend
