    Though saddled with hoary jokes, Goldberg at least pumps some funky life into the bland proceedings.

    A bad movie that a lot of people will like... Though director Jerry Zucker wants his necrophiliac romance to be sensitive, he pumps up its feelings fortissimo so the dimmest viewer will get the point. [16 July 1990, p.86]

    Wrenches at every inch of the heart. Beautifully executed. Films like this don't come often enough and when they do, you most certainly know it. Whoopi Goldberg at her finest. Full Review »

    Ghost is a terrific supernatural romantic drama with brilliant performances from Demi Moore and Patrick
    Swayze. The acting is great, the
    story is involving and the effects are also fantastic. Ghost is one
    of the best thrillers of all time.
