[An] offense of a ghost comedy.

Top Critic

Lowell has little to say about loss and love. But there's a talking parrot, and on some days, that's enough.

Top Critic

Not a life-changing romantic comedy, but it's funny enough, has charming leads and breezes by in its quick 97 minutes.

Lyles' Movie Files

Ghost-lite romantic comedy is only so-so.

Common Sense Media

... neither funny, charming or anything else that will make it a memorable hour and a half of viewing pleasure.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

The film -- pinched from Ghost in every relevant particular -- is pretty moderate.

Super Reviewer

this movie is obvious and predictable that leaves nothing to the imagination, although the concept is different and it has potential but the script is its failure and is funny in places but not really rememberable or worth the watch for a second time.
