Movie - Ghost Town 2008

After being in the hospital for a regular procedure, DDR. Bertram Pincus (Ricky Garvais) started having visions. Finding out he had died during the procedure only helped him and the ghost of Frank Herlihy (Greg Kinnear) realize what had happened. Now several ghosts wouldn’t leave this cranky Dentist, with no people skills, alone. All they wanted was help from the only living person that could see them, all Dr. Pincus wanted was to be left alone. The plan to get rid of them all, suddenly turned into Frank helping Bertram, with his social skills, especially around Franks widow (Tea Leoni), if only they could find a way so that everyone could get what they wanted. Also appearances by Billy Campbell and Alan Ruck.

*** This reluctant ghost whisperer fights the concept of seeing and hearing the dead. While this is a comedy, there is some foul language, some racial prejudices which makes it far from politically correct, but this sort of comedy is sometimes needed. I enjoyed the concept of the sneeze. Not exactly the greatest story ever written, but I needed a laugh and this movie left me in a good mood so I will go with an average recommendation, unless the language, the stereotyping, gag reflex moments or mummified bodies bothers you, then you might want to skip this one.
