Movie Nation

The big screen's best use of the talents of the sarcastic, ever put-upon Mr. Gervais.

Dozens of other movies have romped on the same grass. But Gervais spritzes everything in Ghost Town with a delightfully refreshing comic mist.

The Town isn't as impressive as Affleck's directing debut, 2007's Gone Baby Gone, but he handles the action scenes with brutal efficiency and gets terrific performances from his co-stars.

Yes, there are gags about mummy penises and canine halitosis, but other sublime moments recall Albert Brooks' social-satire heyday. Given the otherworldly elements, David Koepp's "Ghost Town" sweetly hits the heights of Brooks' "Defending Your Life."

The pudgy Brit looks right at home here on the big screen, starring in a romantic comedy in which we're asked to believe he might have a chance with Tea Leoni. And you know what? He makes us believe.

Ghost Town is funny and moves along briskly, fulfilling the two most important qualities of a romantic comedy.

Laramie Movie Scope

This is a good romantic comedy, and that is a genre that often gets messed up. Here, the old formula comes out just right.

Rises above expectations, even though it never quite shatters the genre mould.

Gervais' rapport with his equally enjoyable co-stars Greg Kinnear and Tea Leoni also keeps Ghost Town on solidly funny ground.

Cinema em Cena

Gervais, Leoni (adorŠvel) e Kinnear estabelecem uma boa din‚mica, elevando o roteiro convencional e divertindo mais do que o material conseguiria naturalmente.

Ricky Gervais is an anti-social dentist who can speak with the dead in this very funny romantic comedy about unfinished business.

Ghost Town is both a surprise and a departure: it's genuinely funny and quietly original. It also shows what Gervais can do in the right role.

In the end, Ghost Town delivers. Right now, we need all the laughs we can get. Especially kindly ones.

In different hands, this could have been forgettably saccharine fare, but Gervais' genius and an excellent cast of bit players turn it into solidly acerbic entertainment.

The Age (Australia)

Writer-director David Koepp is almost too careful a craftsman for his own good, but Gervais and Leoni share a talent for throwing the audience off-balance...

The bravura blend of English eccentricity thanks to Ricky Gervais' presence and the surreal fantasy of a new take on the 'I see dead people' concept makes for highly entertaining cinema, especially in the first half

I laughed many times at the absurdity of the script and the situations, and was then surprised to find myself dabbing my eyes a few minutes later when emotional truths suddenly kicked in. Everything works

Sorrow and darkness aren't far below the surface of this lovely comedy, which makes our laughter more agreeable, and more frequent.

Ricky Gervais has become a major international star. The British comic created and was the lead actor in the original British TV version of The Office (2006) and Extras (2007). He has won two Emmys and a Golden Globe. Now after a few bit parts his distinc
