Ghost TownDirector: David Koepp
Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear star in director David Koepp's fantasy comedy concerning Bertram Pincus, a dentist who gains the ability to communicate with the dead after momentarily dying during a routine medical procedure. When the dearly departed begin requesting favors from Dr. Pincus, the self-absorbed dentist finds that living with ghosts isn't easy. Fortunately, recently deceased businessman Frank Herlihy (Greg Kinnear) agrees to keep the dead at bay if Dr. Pincus will just agree to prevent his widow, Gwen (Téa Leoni), from tying the knot to humorless human rights lawyer Richard (Billy Campbell). According to Frank, Richard is just another morally corrupt gold-digger out to take the wealthy Gwen for all she's worth. At first Dr. Pincus agrees to go along with the ruse, though it isn't long before he begins to question his supernatural sidekick's true motivations.

People say this movie is very funny from a british actor.
Loved it....a little romance, a little comedy.....this one was fun to watch for the entire family!
I went into this film thinking that it would be an "O.K." movie... but after watching it, my personal surprise was that it was actually quite enjoyable! If you're looking for a film to take you away for a couple of hours, this might be the one for you... if you can take it lightly! Overall, my surprise was a bit greater than I had originally thought it would be. If you seek a relaxed and kicked back film with a bit of an english twist to the sub-plot, this film should do the trick. Ricky was perfect for the role of the dentist. Tea Leoni and Greg Campbell were also quite enjoyable in their roles to boot! If however, you're easily distracted or get a bit sketchy with somewhat "unusual" humor, this might not be the film to pick up. All in all, I can happily give this a gentle thumbs up. Not a big one, but a gentle one! Enjoy!
