Movie Info

David (Mark Ruffalo) is a recently widowed architect moving into a new apartment in San Francisco. But the apartment isn't entirely empty; it's haunted by the ghost of a woman named Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon). And although Elizabeth can't remember much about her life, she's convinced that she isn't really dead. While David recruits Darryl (Jon Heder), an absent-minded psychic, to get to the bottom of Elizabeth's identity, he and Elizabeth begin to fall in love.

    How much you like this film depends on how much you like Reece Witherspoon. Her character can be quite annoying here but I suppose that's the point. You grow to like her as Ruffalo does. The film plays a little like 'Ghost Town' and 'Cardiac Arrest' but will a little twist this time as the two souls are obviously destined to fall in love. The whole thing is very sweet and Ruffalo and Witherspoon make a nice couple. If you want a sweet romantic comedy you'll probably like this. However it may be a bit sickly for some.

    It is fun watching a ghost who doesn't know they are a ghost. At one point, Reese was arguing that she was completely normal while her ghostly image is being split in half by the dining room table.

    Just Like Heaven may not be a movie with an intelligent screenplay, topnotch direction, and superb acting, but it still managed to touch my heart and show me how good it is to fall in love.
