    The movie's slogan is "Believe," not an unreasonable request. But even those who'd be happy to comply must get past Ghost's one casting jaw-dropper, a certain woolly-mindedness to its script and a production prettified to the point of stickiness.

    What it offers, apart from the overblown special effects that seem inescapable in American movies, is an unusual and effective combination of swooning, morbid romance and screwball comedy.

    The passion and poignancy of trying to communicate with the dead is well-exploited here. Moore has never been more fetching.

    Given its obviously commercial aims, Ghost is remarkably appealing on a purely personal level. It is about how you deal with death.

    Ghost is one part horror picture, one part comedy, one part love story, one part murder mystery and four parts entrancing.

    A bad movie that a lot of people will like.

    There's something offensive about the movie's chintzy view of death and the way it periodically flirts with promising conceits only to back away from them in as cowardly a manner as possible.

    It sounds like a horror movie, but it's a romantic fairy tale. The scariest thing about it is its shamelessness.

    Ghost is a dazzlingly enjoyable pop thriller.

    Ghost is an odd creation -- at times nearly smothering in arty somberness, at others veering into good, wacky fun.

    Name user

    A comedy, romance and supernatural thriller rolled into one, Ghost is a zippy pastiche that somehow manages to seem fresh even though it's built entirely out of borrowed parts.

    Name user

    The real credit for turning a minor mystic romance into one of the most enjoyable movies of the year rests on an excellent script by Bruce Joel Rubin, and on the surprisingly sure direction of Jerry Zucker.

    Ghost' is too slow moving at times, and a few of its special effects look incongruously silly, particularly those showing what happens to ghosts not as virtuous as Sam.

    Zucker dutifully pushes all the buttons -- romance, thrills, laughs, tears -- that have been pushed before by more assured hands.

    Name user

    Surprisingly entertaining.

    Name user

    The actors succeed quite nicely in unifying the movie's multiple personalities, its ricocheting screenplay.

    Name user

    Contains some nice ideas, and occasionally, for whole moments at a time, succeeds in evoking the mysteries that it toys with.
