Afterlife of the Party

We’re not running a matchmaking service here!
19 September 2021

A young party girl dies, and in heaven is given a week as a ghost (or an angel?) to resolve some unfinished business in her life before she can never visit earth again. Things get easier when she discovers that her best friend can see her and talk to her.

This is a pretty shoddy modern cross between It’s a Wonderful Life and Ghost Town, only less well written than the former and less funny than the latter. Are Netflix originals the new Hallmark movies? Low effort, low impact scripts with good looking people going through the ropes.

A waste of time.
