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.

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.

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.

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

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!
