Summary: The film is about a dentist who just wants the world to leave him alone finds out he can now see ghosts and they all want his help. This movie was smart and funny with a sad and a touching ending.
Excerpt: An obnoxious and misanthropic dentist dies on the operating table and when he is revived finds he can communicate with the dead. Ghost Town is most definitely the Ricky Gervais show, which is no bad thing.
Excerpt: Blind-buy as I'm usually a big Rom-Com fan. This rather quirky movie starts off slow but picks up around mid-mark. PQ is decent; nothing special, but certainly not bad. AQ is good as well, but since a Rom-Com not expecting 'Whoa'-sounds. Would recommend this movie as a rent.
Excerpt: I blind bought this one, and watched it for the 2nd time last night. I truly like this movie, as it's different from the usual Rom-com, with some very cool moments in it, witty dialogue, and a great cast. I love Tea Leoni. Greg K. is great too, and so is Ricky Gervais. I recommend getting it.
Excerpt: Ghost Town, a Mr. E Movie Review (Run time: 102 min. - Directed by: David Koepp - Starring: Ricky Gervais, Greg Kinnear, Tea Leoni) Ghost Town, starring Ricky Gervais is a comedic love story mixed with a little of the after life.
Summary: I really liked Ricky Gervais here - his dry, British wit is perfect for a surly dentist who hates the world. The plot was too predictable with some great moments, but overall standard. Still, if you're a fan of Gervais, it's worth a look.
Excerpt: Starts off kinda slow but picks up around the middle. I thought the ending was very good and really bumped the movie up from a 3 to a 4. PQ is decent. Nothing special but certainly not bad. AQ is good as well. I certainly would recommend this movie as a strong rent. A feel good movie for sure.
Summary: Ricky Gervais does a lot with this formulaic, but enjoyable comedy about a Scrooge who finds love with the help of ghosts; the sentimental moments don't quite work, but it's consistently fun to watch. Final Grade: B
