Steve Brooks (Perry King), a sexist womanizer, is killed by a group of his angry former lovers. In purgatory, it is revealed that he has enough good and bad deeds to even out between heaven and hell. He makes a bargain with God for redemption and must find one woman that doesn’t hate him, if not, Steve will go to hell.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Joel Barrish (Jim Carrey) and Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) have a romance. When they part, Clementine opts to get a strange procedure that will erase Joel from her memory. Distraught over her decision, Joel decides to have the same procedure done. A lot of the movie focuses on his memories of their relationship; some good, some bad, and some very abstract, feelings and emotions rather than memories. It is a beautiful movie. The effects are beautiful, the cinematography is amazing, and the movie as a whole is wonderful.
