Life or Something Like It
A reporter (Angelina Jolie) with a shallow, meaningless life interviews a psychic homeless man named Prophet Jack (Tony Shalhoub) who informs her that her life will end in just a few days. The wake-up call emboldens her to try and change things around -- hopefully, for the better. Stockard Channing scores as an investigative reporter modeled after Barbara Walters, and Edward Burns co-stars as Jolie's beleaguered cameraman.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has some strong language. An unmarried couple lives together and there are references to a drunken sexual encounter and an out of wedlock pregnancy. Getting drunk is portrayed as freeing. There is non-graphic violence. Some viewers may be upset by the seer's prediction. And some younger viewers may be disturbed by the reference to divorced parents, even though it is amicable.
