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

See two charming characters make beautiful music together.

Well, I did remember one thing, and that was how snazzy the shoes were that Witherspoon wore for nearly the entire picture. Getting a pair of those wouldn't just be great, it might just be heaven.

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.

In the face of Witherspoon's unrepentant charms, it's very difficult to resist.

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.

Director Mark Waters knows how to turn the gimmicky unknown into psychologically comic adventure, just as he did in 2003's Freaky Friday.

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.

Romance isn't alive but on life support in Just Like Heaven, a groaningly awful romantic comedy.
Sep 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.
Sep 16, 2005
This screwball comedy, initially promising, dies a painful death once the politicking begins.

Fortunately the film stars Mark Ruffalo and Reese Witherspoon, whose collective appeal eventually fuses to pump some heart, laughs and life into what often resembles a disorganized, schizophrenic mess.

Just Like Heaven turns into a bait-and-switch of a movie, wrapping weirdly maudlin speculation inside the candy coating of a frothy romance.
Sep 16, 2005
What a disappointment then to report that Just Like Heaven is more like purgatory.
Sep 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.

The movie clunks along much like its leads, never exactly sure where they belong.
