GHOST TOWN

title: GHOST TOWN
year: 2007
cast: Ricky Gervais, Greg Kinnear
writer/director: David Koepp
rating: ***1/2

Written and directed by David Koepp, this gives the wry-guy Ricky Gervais a decent showcase. Plot centers on a grumpy dentist who goes in for surgery and then finds out later he died for six minutes, and as a result he can see ghosts... much like that kid in "The Sixth Sense", but this ghost-spotter is more annoyed than frightened of the pursuing spectors. Greg Kinnear, as the most charming and most persistant of the ghosts tailing our anti-charm hero, "hires" him to thwart his wife from marrying "the wrong guy". It then turns into a love story, and altogether it's an entertaining romantic comedy with a supernatural twist.
