Ghost scared up box-office business in its 1990 theatrical release, and just like the movie, Paramount's Ghost widescreen collection DVD doesn't do a vanishing act either. The disc contains several special features that enhance the enjoyment of this tragic/comic supernatural love story. The film catapulted stars Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg to the top of the Hollywood food chain, and won two Academy awards: Best Supporting Actress (Goldberg as psychic Oda Mae Brown) and Best Original Screenplay (Bruce Joel Rubin). The DVD is presented in a widescreen version enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. The DVD contains "Remembering the Magic," a retrospective documentary about the film featuring many of its principals. There is also a frequently amusing audio commentary by director Jerry Zucker and Rubin that occasionally reveals how some of the film's special effects were performed.

One of those classics that gets better each time you watch it. One of my favorites. Really good movie.
one of my fave scenes is when she is trying to scam a customer and sam keeps talking to her. Saying stuff like what a crock and finaly whoopi lets out a 'Who is that. Oh and sams rendition of 'I'm henry the eightth i am!' Is great fun. I cried at the end.
One of my very favorite movies.
Love, Sadness and Humor all tied into one. It taps into all of your emotions. For a good laugh, and a good cry too--watch this very special movie.
I loved Patrick Swayze in this movie! The movie overall was really really great. Whoopi Goldburg and Swayze were sooo good. This movie is funny at parts and sad at parts. It is wonderful!
When I saw the Blue Ray version on the shelf I expected yet another "directors cut" Well this is a re-release of the original theatrical release and that for me is quite good enough. It is a wonderful film with unforgettable performances all around, it looks stunning in its new Blue ray incarnation and I highly recommend it for anyone with a hi end system.
GHOST: I have always loved this movie as well as the theme music -- now I am happy to own a copy. Who wouldn't enjoy the best of Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg, all in the same movie? [Funny AND Sad both -- keep a Kleenex near-by.]
this is by far, one of my fave movies along with king kong (the new version), and cinderella man. Whoopi Goldberg is hilarious. And Moore and Swayze are spectacular. Every time i hear unchained melody or see the ending to this movie. i bawl my eyes out!!!
This is a wonderful and sexy movie
This movie was truely intresting, spooky, and well performed but patrick, and co-stars. This edge of your seat romance and connection between life and death makes you want to watch it over and over again.
Ghost, is without a doubt, one of the finest films of all time. The music, the way evil people die and the way good people die is wonderfully crafted. The scene when Whoopi Goldberg's character hears Sam's voice for the first time is wildly funny. See this movie and you will not have a dry eye in the house at the end of the movie.
