    Just Like Heaven isn't far short of a classic among romantic comedies with a teary chaser, sure to please fans of "Ghost" and "Heaven Can Wait."
  2. Crossing the life-death divide, Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo are a winning pair in this smart and tender comedy.
  3. 63
    The film, which comes way too close to preaching, lurches away from the control of director Mark Waters (Mean Girls, Freaky Friday) and ends on a stretched-out note so sappy it makes "Must Love Dogs" look like "8 Mile."
  4. There are moments when it is possible, with effort, to forget the plot and its tired premise and enjoy Witherspoon and Ruffalo's chemistry and imagine they are in another movie. But never for long.
  5. The leads are just too good to commit fully to something this baldly formulaic. It's sad.
  6. 40
    Witherspoon's oft charming perkiness is merely patronizing here, but mid-'90s MTV staple Donal Logue steals every scene he's in as an ethically challenged therapist.
  7. Sounds promising. What a disappointment then to report that Just Like Heaven is more like purgatory, a sweating, straining attempt to marry the wisecracking fury of the modern sitcom to the classic Rock-Doris, Cary-Kate romantic comedy.

    Just like heaven is a hilarious romantic comedy with Mark Ruffalo and Reese Witherspoon. The movie has
    many laughs, romance and is touching.
    John Heder also has a nice role as a man who assists Mark Ruffalo.
    Heder works in a book store and they meet there. Overall the movie is very enjoyable for the whole family and the storyline is diverse from most movies. There is a supernatural aspect in the movie, if you haven't
    seen the movie you'll see what I mean.
