Review this movie
ashleesJun 9, 2009This movie was boring and typical. It is basically the sixth sense of comedy or Ghost, which stories have already been perpetuated throughout movie land more times than deserved. The ending is left open with endless possibe outcomes, when the movie needed some sort of closure: which man did she choose? We will never know?
AllanP.Nov 11, 2008Very poor, old fashioned, boring and crucially, UNFUNNY. I didn't laugh once - and I had seen all the mildly amusing bits in the trailer. Getting really bored of Ricky Gervais now too. Stick to writing Ricky!
SteveH.Mar 13, 2009Schmaltzy sentimental tack.
DoogsTJul 4, 2009Barely watchable shmaltz. Has no internal logic. Pointless drivel fest.
Nov 1, 2010Felt very dated - and not in the good way. Special effects felt like a made-for-TV movie, complete with 'whoosh' sounds as ghosts pass through doors. The sneezing effect was funny the first time, not the thirtieth. The conversations between Gervais and Wiig and the lawyer were the best part of the film.
The biggest complaint I have, though, is that the movie seems to start out as a comedy, then goes into a corny romcom, then tries to be emotional and dramatic. But the dramatic stuff feels very forced, very cliche, very cheesy. The whole film felt empty and on autopilot. Seems like one of those movies meant to fill seats and sell tickets and DVDs; no real aspirations or content to walk away with. Sure, not every movies needs to be a life-changing experience, but unlike, say, a light-hearted Adam Sandler comedy, this movie seems to think it is something deep and affecting.
Really, really corny film.… Expand
Aug 24, 2010Man has colonic operation, can see dead people afterwards with "hilarious" consequences.
Pretty average comedy with one or two laughs here & there.
I'm a big Ricky Gervais fan but I thought he was mis-cast here & it felt a bit uncomfortable & clumsy at times.
Ghost is a lot better &, to be honest, funnier I'd say.
Oct 3, 2013Overelaborate and distasteful, Ghost Town is annoying, dull, and you will be checking your watch to see when you can get out of this movie hell. Ricky Gervais is rude, unlikable, and uninteresting. Greg Kinnear doesn't provide comic relief like he should've. This whole movie is a bad film disguised as a good one.
