Ghost Town

Ricky Gervais (creator of "The Office," don't ya know) stars as a people-hating New York dentist who expires for a few minutes during a routine operation and ends up with the ability to communicate with the dead. That wouldn't be so bad, except the dead are a needy lot. Take, for example, Frank (Greg Kinnear). He needs help stopping his widow (Téa Leoni) from marrying some schmuck. Great idea until Gervais' character falls in love with her himself. ... Yeah, the plot sounds uncomfortably similar to Over Her Dead Body, but Gervais and Kinnear contribute quite a bit of comedy before the romance glops it all up. 102 minutes PG-13.
