Can't Be Heaven (also known as Forever Together) is a 2000 American comedy-drama film directed by Richard Friedman. The film stars newcomer Bryan Burke and Ralph Macchio. The film was loosely based on the 1968 movie Blackbeard's Ghost.
Danny (Bryan Burke), is a young student in middle school. He starts to develop feelings for his best friend, Julie (Michelle Trachtenberg). However a new student by the name of Archie (Michael Galeota) comes in and sweeps Julie off her feet. Danny flees to the graveyard where his father is buried and talks to him about his problems. He soon comes across Hubbie the Ghost (Ralph Macchio), who helps Danny with his girl problems. As a former living person from the 30's, Hubbie, gives Danny his advice. The advice repeatedly backfires, always leaving Danny depressed. Danny soon learns that Hubbie once had a former lover before dying in an accident. Danny and Julie end up together at a school dance and Hubbie re-connects with his former love with the help of Danny.
The film was first released in 2000 on DVD by Ardustry Home Entertainment, and re-released in 2010 by Mill Creek Entertainment.
TV Guide praised the film as an imaginative and refreshing look at adolescent romance, writing that it was "an amusing coming of age story far above the run-of-the-mill teen fare churned out in abundance".
