I had never even heard of Ghost World until I saw it on the new-release shelf at the video store. It looked like a good flick, but I was wrong. Ghost World was a look at real life without any drug scenes! I was amazed at the storyline between Enid and Seymour...I could see myself wanting to follow him around as Enid did, but the friendship between a curious young adult and an equally eccentric middle-aged man was laugh-out-loud as well as touching. The way Ghost World used symbolism was blatant yet haunting, particularly with Norman waiting for the bus and ''the pants.'' I didn't really care for the last scene, but the climax of the movie with Seymour in the hospital absolutely made my eyes overflow. I rented that movie for 6 weeks straight before I had the money to buy it. Each time is better than the last. I highly recommend this.

I've now seen this movie three times. It is spectacular. It seems to sum up the experience of many teenagers and their observations of the absurdities of the scene around them. All the chararcters had real ''bite.'' There weren't any chararcters that I couldn't relate to. I loved it so much I actually bought the DVD. For those who know me that is something of a minor miracle.

I saw this movie for the first time during the summer and I loved it. As cheesy and cliche as it sounds, I saw a lot of my best friend and myself in Enid and Rebecca. But no, the reason I liked it wasn't because it was ''touching'' and ''close to home''. It was just a purely GOOD movie. Enjoy!

After not being able to locate my now old favorite movie at my local video shack, I took a gander and rented this wonderful flick. I was skeptical at first, like most people are with a new movie, partly because we all have that fear that the $1.09 we spend to rent the film will be a waste. Anyhow, this movie incorporates lots of symbolism, sarcasm, and drama to convey a message about this quirky girl's life after she graduates from high school. I love this move, particularly because the ending is so eerie and blunt. You must buy this film. It is essential!

Great movie to watch alone or with other college people who hate people in general

Great script - laugh out loud funny in parts - great casting - Terri Garr as Enid's soon to be stepmother is just plain scary - Thora Birch has never been better - wonderful acting - it didn't seem like acting which is the best compliment I can pay - Steve Buscemi should have won an oscar.

The most outstanding feature in the film, IMHO, are the characters in themselves, the way they feel and their approach to world outside them and life in general. All of the main ones, specially Enid, seem to be misfits, but really it is the world we have which doesn´t fits to them. I think Enid and Seymour are the same character with several years of difference. It´s neither bad nor uncommon to feel or be like that with Enid´s age, but with Seymour´s, perhaps you should consider a bang in the head.

This movie was one of the most provacative and inspiring movies that has come out in a long time. The young leading female role was representative of Daria and portrayed a parallel example of a cartoon image into a real life person. I would recommend this movie to those who have an open mind to a pessimistic gurl in a pessimistic world of love, hope and retro styles.

I can't name how many 'paint-by numbers' movies I've seen but this definitely isn't one of them. It was interesting from beginning to end and I never knew what was going to happen next. I also enjoyed the pessimism and sarcastic humor that seemed more genuine than some other movies who have tried to do that. Definitely something worth seeing.

The movie (Ghost World) grabbed me from the moment I heard the music video Jaan Pechechaan Ho. I knew this film was something specal.

Who ever gave this movie one star is probably used to having entertainment spoon fed to them. Go watch friends or something mr. one star. This movie is brilliant. If you need a laugh track to find something funny, you won't like it.

There are some movies that, unless you have some interest in the original, just never should have been made. This is one of those. What looked good on the movie cover and in reviews did not show up as anything more than boring nonsense that put a dozen people to sleep.
