I heard this was fun and it is. And there is no sex-none-zilch. Ricky Gervias is perfectly cast as a socially challenged dentist. The part was made for him and Greg Kinear is quick and fast with the one liners. Kinear plays a ghost who has come back to keep his wife from marrying someone he thinks is a gold digger. Ricky's character can see and hear Greg along with a host of other ghosts who start bugging Ricky to help them with some unfinished earth business.
I had a hard time seeing Tea Leoni's character linked with the dentist. It never felt very real and I don't think he even kissed her. It reminded me of the theme in the movie As Good As it Gets. Jack Nicholson might have made some changes to his character by the end but he was still not someone I would wish on anyone. A classy woman like Helen Hunt would have to be crazy to hook up with him. But, stranger things happen in real life so we can enjoy the fantasy. Even though Ricky warmed up some in the end of Ghost Town he was still going to be a handful for any woman. Is it really possible to change that much in a short time? The movie winds up with a good moral about helping others.
I just found out something I didn't know about Red Box movie dispensing machines. You can go online and reserve a movie you want at the exact Red Box you would like to pick it up at and they will save it for--I am not sure the time--maybe 24 hours. This was nice to know as I had given up on Red Box because they were always out of the movie I wanted. You just go and swipe your card and wa-la there is the reserved movie.
