Ending / spoiler

(10 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 Brad and Claire leave the cafe at the beginning of the film, and part company. Brad walks to the corner and turns around to look at Claire from a distance. Notice that an extra wearing a pink shirt walks behind Brad once and then again 2 shots later.

Question: The instrumental music being played in the hospital when Brad Pitt is talking to the Jamaican lady sounds familiar, not composed solely for the movie. Anyone know what it is?

Chosen answer: The music played is just another part of the original score composed by Thomas Newman. His music, like many composers', sounds similar in different movies on which he has worked. You may be recognizing similarities to other scores such as The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, Road to Perdition, etc.
