Storyline Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Ghost Town's unwillingness to escape from a safe orbit keeps the movie trapped in mediocrity.

Roger Ebert Full 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 Today Full 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.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 91 moviegoers:GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, enjoyed "Ghost Town" very much. For a minor movie with no major stars there are a surprising number of very high reviews. Equally important is the fact that no one disliked this movie.
