A big sweet hit, tingly and glycerined in a phony way, but diverting. This sometimes spooky mystery-thriller-comedy-fantasy-romance focuses on loved ones who die suddenly, only to linger in spirit form, helping the mortals they have left behind. Specifically, when have-it-all yuppies Sam
and Molly (Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore) are held up, sentimental bank executive Swayze gets shot. But he finally figures out--we've seen smarter ghosts in "Casper" cartoons--that vulnerable, adorable Moore is in danger from his corrupt co-worker (Tony Goldwyn). He solicits fake medium Goldberg
to help him communicate, and she discovers she's a bonafide psychic after all.
