Meet Joe Black

Meet Joe Black (1998)

Ending / spoiler

(7 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: In the beginning where Claire and Anthony are waiting for "Drew" to arrive they are talking. She says to him while putting her hand on his tummy "Get some food in that flat tummy of yours". On the first shot of this Anthony's arm is out with his hand resting on his hip. In the next shot (as she's pulling her hand away) his arm and hand are down by his side with her arm over his. Not possible.

Joe Black: How are you doing?
William Parrish: What the hell do you care?
Joe Black: Just asking, Bill.
William Parrish: You wanna know? I'll tell you. You're looking at a man who is not walking through the valley of the shadow of death. He's galloping into it. At the same time, the business he built with his own hands and head has been commandeered by a couple of cheap pirates. Oh, yes! I almost forgot. My daughter's fallen in love with Death.
