Just Like Heaven Reviews

Just Like Heaven is a typical romantic comedy that stumbles on the problems of being not particularly funny or interesting. It could have been truly heartwarming, but is so heavy handed here that the final result is merely sentimental pap.

Just Like Heaven" perpetuates the Frisco curse that not one great movie has been made in the hilly city since Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo in 1958.

Kudos to Witherspoon and Ruffalo for generating enough screen chemistry to insure a teary-eyed finale that'll make you forget the fact that you're watching a shameless rip-off.

One of the best times I've had at the movies in a while. It's not perfect. It's not very deep. But it's a whole lot of fun and even a little moving.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

While the picture adheres to romantic-comedy formula, it's not entirely formulaic, and the actors, who appear to be having fun, give it a bright and undeniable appeal.

Um filminho simpático protagonizado por dois atores carismáticos. E, ainda assim, não é um bom sinal que eu esteja utilizando a palavra 'filminho' para descrevê-lo.

Like a romantic comedy Chinese dinner. You watch it, and an hour later you are hungry again for a romantic comedy.

There's also strong support from Donal Logue (as David's best friend Jack) and Jon Heder, who proves there's life after Napoleon Dynamite with an amusing comic turn as a supernatural bookseller who agrees to help David.

There are parts of the film that engage and others that are just plain silly. Pity. With a better script, Just Like Heaven just might have been a winner.

With apologies to The Cure... 'Show me show me show me/ How you make a flick/ That has a hackneyed theme,' she said.

...it balances humor and poignancy in a way that's far from comatose.

This trifling love story is thoroughly ridiculous but still surprisingly enjoyable

When my body and spirit decide to go their separate ways, I want to be perky and beautiful like Reese Witherspoon in Just Like Heaven.

A spirited diversion that showcases the talents of Witherspoon and Ruffalo, who should team up again soon.

It took me about 45 minutes into "Just Like Heaven" to figure out just exactly what it is: A contemporary retelling of "Sleeping Beauty."

Another cinematic press release targeting audiences with a positive spin on the ugly subjects of death, loss and severe illness.
