Almost everyone will find something to like about this film, but other parts can really get your knickers in a twist.
Despite having heard the tune for years previously, I didn't really like "Unchained Melody" until it was featured in the movie. There are many surprises here...Demi's unusually convincing performance, Whoopi telling us about traffic patterns in the spirit world ("I got spooks comin' in from Jersey!"), Swayze developing his telekinetic powers with the help of the "subway ghost". Yet there is also Whoopi's annoying ad lib attempts at humor, the uninspired "afterlife" special effects, and the uncomfortable subtext of the plot...that Demi loves the Swayze character even more now that he's deceased (shudder). The theologically inclined will get to weigh in on how the court system in the afterlife would rule on a "revenge killing" plea. Hey, and if this necrophiliac spook-infested romp really is a good movie for Valentine's Day, heaven help us all!

This review refers to the Paramount DVD edition of "Ghost"....
A man is shot and killed. His body dies, but not his spirit. Before leaving this world for the next, he must find a way to warn his lover that she is in impending danger from the culprits. Sound just a little familiar? It should. The idea for this story is loosely based on none other then "Hamlet". This though is not quite as deep or complex as Shakespeare's great tragedy. It is however, a thought provoking, touching story that has a little something for everybody. It's got romance,comedy, mystery and suspense, fantasy, action and most importantly...WHOPPI!
So how does Sam(Patrick Swayze) manage to make contact with his beloved Molly(Demi Moore) after his death? Well he goes through a psychic of course. Not just any psychic though..he finds a medium who's larger than life..Oda Mae Brown(Whoppi Goldberg).
Together, they turn Molly into a believer(along with the audience) and chase down the murderous thugs out to get her.
The action, and suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat, the romance will thrill you and the special effects are dazzling. Whoppi Goldberg is fabulous, and provides the wonderful comic relief in the story, as a con artist who finds herself with a gift to give. She took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for this 1990 film. The film was also honored with the Best Original Screenplay. Swayze and Moore seem like they were made for each other and will have you believing in love ever after.
The DVD presents a nice clear picture in widescreen and the sound gives you the choice of DD5.1 surround or stereo surround. It may also be viewed in French(stereo) and has English subtitles for those needing them.

When "Ghost" was released in 1990, it enjoyed an immense popularity. It was a different type of love story. There is supernatural elements- ghosts, demons, heaven, hell, the afterlife, a story with action that men could enjoy and comedy that could make anyone laugh at the right times, especially with the supporting role of Whoopi Goldberg's character. This DVD of the film features commentary and restrospective portions. It looks and sounds as good as it did when it was released in theatres. Ghost is an easy story to follow. It's perfect to enjoy for Valentine's Day. Patrick Swayzee (Sam) was murdered by a rival (Tony Goldwyn)in order to get his hands on a lot of money. Demi Moore, his widowed wife, becomes the victim of this same rival's schemes. But as luck would have it, Sam is'nt really dead. He's merely a ghost left around to save his wife and defeat the bad guy. Aiding Sam is a medium-pyschic (Whoopi Goldberg).
There are some genuinely romantic, exciting and comedic moments in this film. The much remembered love scene includes Patrick Swayzee (as a ghost)caressing Demi Moore as she busily makes a clay urn. The love theme for this film, which was also scored for orchestra, is the Righteous Brother's "Unchained Melody". If anything, this film helped to popularize the classic oldie song. Suddenly, after Ghost, Unchained Melody became somewhat of a romantic pop song and every couple just wanted the song as their song (performed at weddings, dedicated to them on the radio, etc and even newer versions of the song are still sung by artists today). The funny moments are with Whoopi. She is a fraud psychic, who does not listen to ghosts at first and is merely scamming people from their money. But when Same comes to her, she is able to really hear him. Especially funny are their scenes together.

There are good syrupy films and there are bad syrupy films. Jerry Zucker's "Ghost" is a good syrupy film. In the magical world of celluloid, the premise that true love transcends death can be given tangible form. And all you need to turn this premise into box office gold are two engaging leads, good direction and production values, a classic Righteous Brothers' tune, and Whoopi.
Investment banker Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) is killed by a mugger one night. His true love, Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) is devastated but unbeknownst to her; Sam is still lingering on this astral plane. He has information that will implicate his killer but he has no way to pass on this information until he hooks up with a psychic named Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg). Oda has the ability to channel Sam so she works with him to catch his killer and to give him the opportunity to say a proper good-bye to Molly.
"Ghost" certainly goes against the traditional perception of ghosts as apparitions who hang around dilapidated houses and take pleasure in spooking people. Sam's ghost is a tortured soul who continues to hang around the living in order to set matters right. His reunion with Molly is as schmaltzy as you can get but it is also very effective because of the strong conviction Swayze and Moore bring to their roles. They really immerse themselves in the sentimental spirit of the film and bring a charm and sweetness to their relationship. Goldberg is also wonderful in a part that could easily have been painful to watch. She brings just the right combination of restraint and eccentricity to her performance to make it a keeper. "Ghost" is one doozy of an unconventional love story but the bottom line is that it works and works well.
