Witherspoon and Ruffalo underplay the broad comedy and their characters' attraction, which is why their chemistry ultimately proves to be so satisfying.

I was licking my movie critic chops anticipating a juicy negative review of what surely would be a disastrous take on another ghost-story-turned-romance. Surprise, surprise!

Offers further proof that a film really can get by on the charms of its stars.

It's fine for what it is. A romantic comedy with a slight supernatural bent, but it doesn't go far enough.
| Original Score: 3/5

Starts out glib and gimmicky but later digs surprisingly deep.

Despite the modern trappings, Just Like Heaven is as retro as hell.
John Wirt
Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
September 23, 2005
The film sweetens and trivializes tragic circumstances that are all too common and neither funny nor romantic.
Mark Palermo
The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
September 22, 2005
It's not great for the same reason it isn't terrible: It takes no risks.

Ever wonder about having a relationship with someone who would just disappear every so often? Well, that materializes here-and sometimes it doesn't look too bad

The brain activity never dips too low and this funny, charming picture never takes itself too seriously.

It's corny, it's somewhat predictable, but it's also very sweet, it's funny.
