Life is going well for Bob Jones: great job, beautiful loving wife and a baby on the way. Then he finds out that he has the Dreaded Movie Disease that will leave him dead within months. He sets out to videotape his life's acquired wisdom for his child, and ends up on a voyage of self-discovery and reconciliation.
This one of those film's where you know how it will end for them get go, but it's the performances that elevate the predictable plot. Keaton and Kidman are so perfect, and the scene when she gives him the birthday he always wanted makes me bawl like a baby every time. You may know the ending is coming, but it will still tug on the heart strings badly.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
