Laugh out loud funny

Great movie for fans of Paul Rudd's understated humor. It's a simple story that we've seen many times before, but this movie finds new twists, and its humor really hits home. In 2008 Paul Rudd hadn't quite mastered projecting charisma that commands the camera, as he did in the Ant Man movies. This may be why some of the reviewers complain of a lack of chemistry in the love stories in this movie. But the performances by Eva Longoria and Lake Bell more than compensate. They're clearly having a blast with this story, while Paul Rudd becomes a kind of straight man to the mayhem breaking out between the leading ladies of the film. This movie is surprisingly good, and we'll worth your time.

I will imediatly tell you that my favorite scene was the "tank" dog lifting seen at the vet's office. Okay, now that that's out of the way...I've seen Lake Bell in supporting roles in other films and I've always thought she had more to give. Turns out I was right. Ms. Bell was fun to watch and her chemistry with leading man Paul Rud felt perfectly natural. Her interactions with Jason Biggs were also great, though it got a bit creepy during the big revelation...I'm sure there was supposed to be some creepiness there, but it might have gone a tad too far. I have never seen Eva Longoria in anything as far as I'm aware (I don't know if that's sad or not) so I was able to watch her performance with no pre-set determinations. She definetly had the "bridezilla" role pegged in the beginning of the film. As far as the rest of her performance, she certainly made a great menacing spirit, but it all fell flat after her epifiny. Overall, this is just a fun film to watch if you just wanna watch a movie. I'll leave the purchasing desicion up to you. Enjoy.

Predictable but fun
Verified purchase
The premise is simple. A woman (Eva Longoria) dies on what was to be her wedding day. She returns to earth as a ghost only do discover that her former fiancé is seeing an alleged psychic and, worse, beginning to fall for her. The ghost begins to torment the psychic in order to prevent the incipient romance from blooming.

The rest of the plot should be pretty obvious, and, indeed, there is nothing surprising here. But if the plot is a strictly by-the-numbers affair, the performances are not so much, especially Longoria's, which suggests strongly that she had a great deal of fun with the role. That fun translates onto the screen, and the result is an amusing movie. This might not be great filmmaking, but it is an enjoyable way to pass 90 minutes.

As someone said, predictable but fun.

Exactly that. Rom/com ghost story done nicely. Nice script and dialogue, good technicals and really funny incidental characters. Fun and laughs.
