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 is a sweet little nothing that is barely there, about a girl who isn't there at all.

Rarely humorous, rarely romantic, and rarely affecting.

The movie is like a lot of things, but heaven isn't one of them.

Waters finds it nearly impossible to generate stimulation from a lovey-dovey narrative formula so lifeless it wouldn't register on any ER equipment.

A film that is never quite sure what it wants to be.

It weighs down the considerable charms of [Reese] Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo, who might have otherwise gotten it to fly.

Romantic comedies can withstand a lot more heart and respect, and this tripe doesn't bother with either.

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.

Harkens back to Joseph L. Mankiewicz's The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) without being quite so clever or romantic.

The wildly disjointed movie somehow finds an inoffensive, so-so groove. Despite some original strokes and funny gags, it takes many what-if answers from other, better titles.

The movie would have benefited from a more raucous and freewheeling application of its premise.

When it comes to romantic chemistry, they never quite mesh, no matter what twinkle effect Waters puts on the screen when Ruffalo's hand touches Witherspoon's ethereal plane.

Usually whenever the phrase 'just like' precedes something, it's a nice way of saying it falls short of the real thing.

[T]he stars of this mind-numbing dull movie deserve so much better than this. Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo do their best to rise above the crap...

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.
