Many characters for one talent
on 17 November 2012
Robert Downey Junior won't miss the possibility to show he is able to play any character, in this case, because of a careless bus driver four passengers die but their souls remain attached to a baby, born exactly in the moment they died.
They become his friends while he grows, visible only to him, but when their presence risks him to be considered a freak, or insane, they choose to disappear. Twenty years later, they discover why they are still glued to the boy, now a man and reappear devastating his well organized life as a bank executive.
Why watch it: The four ghosts, all of them fantastic actors, the impersonations of the four by Robert Downey Junior when his body is "possessed" by them and a fantastic american anthem a cappella by the same Robert Downey.
The DVD is a UK edition but it has several Dubbings, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian and also has the subtitles in the same languages plus english, making it enjoyable also to the non english mothertongue as me. There are no extras on the DVD but of course being a movie of the VHS era there were no interviews or making of at the time.
