    The script -- like the direction and acting -- is only half on.
  2. Raines' conversations with the dead... aren't exactly riveting.
  3. The hallucinatory gimmick can only do so much for the same old stories.
  4. All this talent can't make the premise - a police detective talks to murder victims - work.

    "I see dead people." Crime victims, that is. Nobody does smart flakiness like Jeff Goldblum. I hope they bring it back.
