  1. A wonderful movie, sincere and inspired, with four terrific performances and a story that doesn't let up. The picture has the gentle, nourishing quality of a fairy tale that you want to believe, and the unsoftened impact of gut-level entertainment. [13 July 1990, Daily Datebook, p.E1]
  2. It's an unpredictable, mesmerizing journey nearly every shady second of the way.

    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.

    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 »
