  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.

    A beautiful movie with a touching story and an incredible cast. Whooping Goldberg made me laugh during this movie and she dilivered an awesome performance. Patrick Swayze is my man crush. Full Review »

    Ghost, especially the clay scene, is painfully cheesy. But the feel of the whole movie and the way it plays out is inspiring, even if the setup has been done a hundred times before. Full Review »
