The review of this Movie prepared by J.R.

Joe Black - Brad Pitt comes to earth from Heaven to take Anthony Hopkins to heaven with him in the form of death. Death decides to take a Holiday, and Joe Black delays the inevitable to become more knowledgeable himself and in mean time falls in love with Anthony Hopkins Daughter Claire Forlani. Pitt ultimately does the right thing & the movie has happy ending for all except the main antagonist who gets his. A great movie all in all!
