Summary, etc.: Daniel Miller was tooling along a Los Angeles boulevard listening to Barbra Streisand sing "Something's Coming" when something came - a bus. One head-on crash later, Daniel wakes up deceased. And his troubles are just beginning .... Meryl Streep joins writer/director/star Brooks ... for a witty peek at the afterlife where you can eat all you want and not gain an ounce. But there's a catch: you're saddled with Defending Your Life. If you can't make a case for having lived a full and fearless one, you must go back to Earth and try again. Daniel's life was far from fearless. But after he meets ... Julia (Streep), he's determined not to go back"-- container.
