Ghost Town

Here's one that almost passed us by. Not very well advertised, but with a name like Ghost Town you already know I was going to check it out.

But don't let the name fool you...This is a funny movie and well worth the price of the ticket.

Ricky Gervais plays a Manhattan dentist with an over-sensitive gag reflex who hates people.

He dies for seven minutes during a routine medical procedure and as a result, he can now see ghosts and, of course, they all want something from him. The "something" that one particular ghost, played by Greg Kinnear, wants is for him to prevent his widow (Tea Leoni) from marrying a guy he doesn't like. At first reluctant to take on the task, he is finally blackmailed into to trying to break up her relationship and soon he falls for her himself.

We went in not knowing what to expect in this one and came out pleasantly surprised.

I have not even heard of this one. That sounds like a good movie, and I really like Greg Kinnear (in a non Mark Wahlberg kind of way, of course.) ;)
