... it is refreshing to see a love story played out with sincerity.

See two charming characters make beautiful music together.

Starts out glib and gimmicky but later digs surprisingly deep.

It's corny, it's somewhat predictable, but it's also very sweet, it's funny.
September 16, 2005
Closer to hell, really.

Just Like Heaven is really nothing more than your standard love-from-beyond-the-grave squishfest (even though the heroine isn't actually dead) done up in the dumb bonnet-and-bloomers get-up of contemporary romantic comedy.
September 16, 2005
Director Mark Waters knows how to turn the gimmicky unknown into psychologically comic adventure, just as he did in 2003's Freaky Friday.
September 16, 2005
Just when Just Like Heaven becomes too cloyingly cute to endure, it takes an unexpected turn. The humor shifts from the ha-ha variety to closer to black.
September 16, 2005
Romance isn't alive but on life support in Just Like Heaven, a groaningly awful romantic comedy.
September 16, 2005
Just Like Heaven is a sweet little nothing that is barely there, about a girl who isn't there at all.

It's popcorn entertainment with a heavy political-medical agenda.

This screwball comedy, initially promising, dies a painful death once the politicking begins.

Just Like Heaven turns into a bait-and-switch of a movie, wrapping weirdly maudlin speculation inside the candy coating of a frothy romance.
September 16, 2005
What a disappointment then to report that Just Like Heaven is more like purgatory.
September 16, 2005
If heaven is a big ball of cotton candy, then Just Like Heaven lives up to its name. It has no nutritional value, and it won't fill you up, but it's bright, pink and fluffy.
September 16, 2005
The movie clunks along much like its leads, never exactly sure where they belong.
September 16, 2005
Like all ghost movies, the premise of Just Like Heaven is wraith-thin.
September 16, 2005
Just Like Heaven could be the perfect balm for post-Katrina movie audiences in search of a little levity.

Just Like Heaven is light, pleasing and well worth seeing.
