Fan Comments
9 Feb 2001 - Meet Joe Black was an excellent movie that will never lose its spark of intriguing story line  and acting.  A timeless film that should never be forgotten. -- BT

6 May - I believe Brad Pitt to be one of the few actors of his generation that is the MOST DISTINGUISHED , UNIVERSAL, CHARACTER ACTORS since CLARK GABLE, ERROL FLYNN AND GREGORY PECK! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BRAD. --  Joyce

4 Apr 99 - It was the greatest love story ever. It was even better than titanic. I could watch it a million times. I cried on the love scene, it was such a beautiful story, & so romantic. It touched my heart; I can't wait for it to come out on video, I'll be the first to buy it.

31 Jan 99 - It was the best movie of '98 I thought.

4 Jan 99 - On scale of 10, about a 5. Was too long and too contrived. Good acting though. End didn't justify theme or explain itself. What happened to Bill's body?
