Ghost Town was a pleasant, touching surprise comedy with a big heart.

You may say you've seen this type of picture many times before, but I liked about everything, and the idea worked on all levels for me.

The acting was good, and it had just the right amount of comedy, which did not get too silly and stupid , with some touching moments that made for a feel-good movie.

Even if you don't believe in ghosts, or you do, you should enjoy this film.

As romantic/comedy ghost stories go, this is a pretty good one -- thanks to Ricky Gervais' sardonic wit.

Yes! He sees dead people with unresolved problems, and that is the problem.

He'd like to move on with his rather pathetic and lonely life, but the ghosts won't let him.

As a matter of fact, they follow him everywhere.

It's a quirky comedy for those of you in a slightly twisted romantic mood.

This romantic comedy, called Ghost Town, involves a distrusting, self-centered New York dentist who develops an ability to see dead people, after briefly flat lining during a routine colonoscopy.

He then wakes up with the annoying ability to see ghosts.

The dead are solid looking, of the type that populated the classic Cary Grant movie Topper.

Each spirit has unfinished business with the living for which they want the star dentist to act as a go-between or harmonizing agent.

This film has some dead spots, but I enjoyed it.

There is comedy, romance, and a satisfying ending that might be called a bit of a tear-jerker in the end.
