I am amazed by how many people have never heard of this movie. It is a great movie. One that I am glad I know and get to introduce to people. Plus it has an awesome music numbers featuring BB King and the song Walk like a Man!
|Walk like a man! Talk like a Man!|
First thing is that this movie has an all star cast. Robert Downey Jr, Elisabeth Shue, Charles Grodin, Alfre Woodard, Tom Sizemore (pre drugs), and Kyra Sedgwick (pre The Closer). But the story focuses around Thomas (Downey) who gets 4 souls attached to him when he is a baby and only he can see them. As he grows up these four become his best of friends that is until his strange behavior catches the eye of social services so the souls disappear from his sight.
Later when Thomas is all grown up and in full scrooge mode, the souls return because they realized that the reason they are attached to Thomas is that he is supposed to help them resolve what they left here on Earth. So the fun begins. The movie is hilarious and touching. You must check it out.
Final Verdict: Must own. Must watch.
