Pete Docter and Kemp Powers co-direct this Pixar animated adventure comedy about Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx), a middle school band teacher who winds up dead from an accident on the very day he gets his big break to join a famous jazz ensemble. He manages to avoid going into the light to the “Great Beyond” and lands instead in the “Great Before,” where soul counselors—all named “Jerry”—prep new souls for life on Earth.

Joe is tasked with mentoring 22 (Tina Fey), a soul who resists transferring to a body on Earth. Long story short, they manage to return to Earth with 22 inhabiting Joe’s body while Joe ends up in a hospital therapy cat. Can 22 learn that life on Earth is worth living? Can Joe find a way back into his own body to fulfill his destiny as a great jazz pianist?

This charming story has wonderful messages about finding your spark, about what makes life worth living, and about helping others. The animation is wonderful, its depiction of Black culture respectful, and its celebration of jazz music inspiring. What a tribute to second chances! (100 min.) 

—Glen Starkey










Weekly Poll
What should Santa Barbara County prioritize for regulation and ordinance updates?

Cannabis all the way. Growers should be required to get a conditional use permit.
Child care facilities deserve our attention. There are too many barriers for these businesses.
It's not glamorous, but wireless communication needs to come into compliance with federal rules.
The environment should be prioritized. Oil and gas operations on land need more regulations.
