Heaven Can Wait (1943)
A comedic drama directed by Ernst Lubitsch.
A man goes to hell, thinking he belongs there, and tells the devil about his life.
I watched this mostly because of the Iron Maiden song, but found myself enjoying it. The man never has a job through the whole film and his description at the end about the boat is close to what I would want. There were some funny parts that mostly involved the grandfather. The father asks "where does he get it?" about his son, and there's the grandfather acting just that way. We won't get into war bond advertisements here. I'm rating it adequate because I kind of liked it.
