Ending / spoiler

(5 votes)

Bill dares Joe (Death) to reveal to Susan who he really is at Bill's birthday party. Joe does so, and Susan is distressed and cannot accept Joe. Joe decides to help Bill by revealing his dishonest new business associate that he is an undercover agent for the IRS and that he has been discovered. This then prevents Parish Communications from being sold off to John Bontique. Nearing the end of the party, Joe takes Bill over the bridge of a stream on Bill's estate and takes him to the afterlife, also returning the body of the young man. Susan and the young man speak (him knowing nothing of the previous events) and they fall in love.

Continuity mistake: When Marcia Gay Harden is doing the final preparations for the party that night, she and Anthony Hopkins have a dialogue where they talk about favorites and children. Towards the end of the dialogue, she hugs him and the watch on her wrist says something like 10am. A minute later she hugs him again and the watch now says 12:25.
