Bertram Pincus's people skills leave much to be desired. When Pincus dies unexpectedly, but is miraculously revived after seven minutes, he wakes up to discover that he now has the annoying ability to see ghosts. Even worse, they all want something from him, particularly Frank Herlihy, who pesters him into breaking up the impending marriage of his widow Gwen. That puts Pincus squarely in the middle of a triangle, with spirited results.
Comedy - This is a comedy with elements of romance and fantasy. Fans of star
Ricky Gervais will have much to enjoy here; the American stars, Tea
Leoni and Greg Kinnear, have much smaller supporting roles. Older
adults are the target audience.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Ghost Town's unwillingness to escape from a safe orbit keeps the movie trapped in mediocrity.
Roger EbertFull Review Good 'Ghost Town' is a lightweight rom-com elevated by its performances. It is a reminder that the funniest people are often not comedians, but actors playing straight in funny roles.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Ghost Town is what used to be called a sleeper. Sure, it's a light comedy, but it effectively achieves what it sets out to do: amuse us and tug on our heartstrings. And best of all, it's written, directed and acted with intelligence and wit.
