I love his quick witted dialog and it is magical to watch Ricky evolve from his irritating character as you find yourself rooting for him in this sweet romantic comedy. The entire cast works well in this and if you like romatic comedies, you just want to watch it again and again.
This is a great comedy. Actually it is a coming of age movie and the Ghost Rules had changed.
I do not want to give a blow by blow detail of the story as that is what you are buying the DVD for and need some surprises. Be sure to watch the commentary afterwards and then the moving again armed with the knowledge of what is being portrayed.
Frank Herlihy (Greg Kinnear) a recently dispatched philandering husband still hangs around in the ether. Soon Bertram Pincus D.D.S. (Ricky Gravis) meets with an untimely "end" of sorts and is able to see dead people. So as tradition has it Frank recruits Bertram to protect Frank's widow from marrying what seems like an unseemly person. Naturally thing go awry. We cannot help from kibitzing. But we may also learn something in the process.
Fort the technically inclined I must admit I only say the Blu-ray version so I cannot comment on different media presentations. The commentary is with David Koll and Ricky Gervais. Aside from the standard three languages they have added Portuguese subtitles for some reason.
