Synopsis

Gothamites Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) see their romance shattered when a street thug kills Sam during a mugging. A spectral Sam finds himself in a world where only sassy pseudo-psychic Oda Mae (Whoopi Goldberg) can hear him. He learns, with Oda Mae’s help, that a rival masking a money-laundering scheme arranged Sam’s death and that Molly is in jeopardy. Working through Oda Mae, Sam tries to warn Molly before she suffers his fate.

Dove Review

This film is a combination romantic comedy-drama-fantasy-thriller film that was the talk of the town in 1990. It includes great effects that make Patrick Swayze look like an actual ghost and Whoopi gives the award-winning performance which brings the audience laughter and tears.

It had been a long time since I watched this movie. I was surprised by the language contained in this film. Maybe I am more sensitive to it as a reviewer for Dove. For this reason, the strong language and other content, Dove cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie.
