STORY SYNOPSIS
When George and her colleagues get a new boss whose focus is on moving souls quickly and enjoying life without consequences, the team begins to break the strict reaper rules. While her friends fall victim to their desires for money, success, and fame, George breaks another rule by revealing her true identity to her living family. As the reapers struggle with their roles on Earth, they each find that death can be just as complicated as life. Through its strong storyline, Dead Like Me delves into the intricate mythology and dark comedy created by the TV series and appeals to the show’s legions of fans as well as those new to the world of the reapers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bitter disappointment March 1, 2009
Format:DVD
As a die-hard fan of the series, I have to say that this movie is an insult.

Despite being written by two of the original series' regular writers, both the writing and the direction (new director) are truly painful. Daisy Adair is played by a different actress, Sarah Wynter, who doesn't hold a candle to Laura Harris, who played Daisy in the series. Rather than being a superficial, but talented and clever, materially-driven woman, Daisy is now nothing more than an air-headed wanna-be. Her character has been utterly destroyed. Meanwhile, the character Roxie apparently has no problem breezing past lines she never would have even come close to consider crossing previously. The plot stretches credulity past the breaking point, and is entirely unimaginative.

The one point of strong satisfaction from the movie is that Georgia finally reveals herself to her sister Reggie. While very satisfying, it also feels like committing a cardinal sin, and in any case it was an easy, low-hanging fruit for the writers to grab that certainly didn't involve any skill to come up with.

On the whole, the movie was extremely painful for me to watch. If it had been any other movie, I would have simply stopped watching after 20, 30 minutes tops; but I needed closure. But it was so bad, that my wife has said she's considering writing her own ending to the series, just so she could forget this one.

Don't buy this movie, unless you're such a die-hard fan that you actually don't care if it completely sucks (think Star Wars Episode I, only a bit worse). It simply isn't worth it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh... February 2, 2009
Format:DVD
I have to disagree with a lot of what people seem to be saying in their reviews. As a long time fan of the series, I actually found this to be fairly disappointing. I did not think the consistency of the characters was there throughout, and the storyline often seemed poorly tied together. Sometimes it seemed like they couldn't decide between making a movie for the fans and making a movie for the casual viewer who didn't know all the backstory.

Laura Harris is sorely missed. Couldn't they have waited until the timing worked out with her? Her replacement is trying very hard to measure up, but she doesn't quite cut it. I never felt like she had a full grasp on Daisy's character at all. Situations that Laura could have given meaning to came out stiff and one-dimensional.

Rube was also missed. At least they gave a valid reason for his absence.

As I said somewhere else: it's been too long and the magic is gone. Something was missing.

About the only character I felt was utterly perfect and herself 100% of the time was Dolores. And Murray. God bless you Murray Herbig.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible waste of Money and Expectations February 21, 2009
By V. M.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me preface this review by saying that I am a HUGE fan of the original series. I was so excited when I heard a movie was being released that I pre-ordered it and waited with great anticipation until it arrived in my mailbox.

As I watched Dead Like Me, the movie, all I kept thinking was... is this it? I loved George and Dolores, but character-wise, that was it. I agree with others' review's on the "new" Daisy. She left a great deal to be desired, acting-wise and character-driven-wise. The plot and story line seemed disjointed and areas that could/should have been flushed out and exciting/entertaining/illuminating were just flat, boring and seemed "rushed" or glossed over.

There is so much more the writers could have done with this movie, if only to convince someone/anyone to revive the series, but apparently they were only interested in getting a paycheck and doing the least amount of work in the process. Or maybe the writers of this movie never actually "watched" the series. In any case, I CAN NOT recommend this movie to ANYONE who loves the series. It is a cheap attempt to make a buck and does nothing to be true to the series.

It is really a shame, because so much more could have been done by the writers and by the Daisy character. Rube's replacement, Cameron, was interesting to a small degree, but not enough character development there either to justify his ending comments that he did what he did to create chaos and see where the ripples in the pond led when he made people do the wrong thing. I mean, is he supposed to be a devil; truly evil?, or just simply misguided and "quirky?".

That being said, as usual, I loved Dolores Herbig and the whole idea of giving kitty one last Hurrah.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wow, Epically bad. February 14, 2009
Format:DVD
If a show has been over for 3 years, and didn't have a proper ending, WHY WHY WHY would you make a movie that doesn't tie up loose ends?

Once the film ended the only words we could think was "WHY did that need to be made."

I absolutely love the show. One of my top ten.

Why this movie fails:
-Loss of Rube. No characters seemed to even care that he was gone.
-Loss of Daisy and replaced by someone doing a bad impression of her.
-Dry boring script.
-Emotionless dialogue being delivered by cast.
- Different locations trying to be passed off as the originals.
- Threw out old reaping rules and stomped all over what was set up.
- 25 person cat funeral.
- Different cinematography didn't match old aesthetic.
- Wasn't made for fans, new comers wont enjoy.

Just bottom of the barrel production. I don't know why there are so many gleaming reviews. I think once more true fans see this wreck of a great show, the true ratings will come out.

Rewatch the series and pass on this.

The movie wasn't bad but it last the thread the show was going on. It almost looks like an fanfic made into an episode stretched to feature length.

Non US blocking by xenophobes at production company
Sorry, but it is "that licensing rubbish". You don't have to believe it, but it's true. Don't get me wrong, I think it sucks and *I* don't like it any more than you do, but it's still reality.
