Defending Your Life  

Posted by: Isabel in , ,

Defending Your Life is a 1991 romantic comedy/fantasy film about a man who must justify his life-long lack of assertiveness after he dies and arrives in the afterlife.

There isn't a plot summary on yahoo. Basically, when you die, you are taken to Judgment City. There were spend a couple of days before a judge. They will decided if you have faced your fears and if you are ready to move on. If not, you will have to go back to Earth.

Daniel is staying at the Continental Hotel. Your basic Holiday Inn. His trial will last 9 days. During his trial it shows he never faced his fears. He made bad and stupid decisions. He also never really stuck up for himself.

While in Judgement City he meets Julia. We learn Julia's trial is only 4 days and she's staying the Majestic. A really nice fancy hotel. She even has a jacuzzi in her bathroom. She's lead a life of courage. In her past life she was Prince Valiant. (You can go to the Past Lives Pavilions and see who were in the past. This one old lady screams when she sees she was a sumo wrestler)

I recorded this movie on the DVR and finally got a chance to watch it. Daniel kind of got on my nerves at times. Otherwise good movie.
