Ghost TownAfter a near-death experience during a routine colonoscopy, people-hating dentist Bertrum Pincus is shocked to discover that he is suddenly able to talk to the dead. Even worse, they all want something from him, particularly Frank Herlihy, who pesters him into breaking up the impending marriage of his widow Gwen.

Critic Reviews of "Ghost Town"At the MoviesNovember 07, 2008
It is alternately tender, sad and smart. It's also very funny.At the MoviesNovember 07, 2008
This just kind of fell flat.Time OutOctober 24, 2008
Enjoyable as it is to see Gervais trying (and often succeeding) to make something of the mediocre dialogue, it's not enough.I.E. WeeklySeptember 19, 2008
Funny but familiar, Koepp's comedy feels like a multiplex reincarnation -- we've seen this film before and back then we must have stepped on someone's toesCNN.comSeptember 19, 2008
Naturally, Koepp makes it his business to redeem this unpleasant character and recast him as an acceptable stand-in for a romantic lead. But cynics should not despair; it's not a complete makeover.Wall Street JournalSeptember 19, 2008
It's enlivened by the performance of Ricky Gervais as Bertram Pincus, a latter-day Scrooge for whom the living are no less annoying than the dead.QuickflixOctober 21, 2014
One poor soul is buck naked. I don't even want to know how he kicked the bucket.Movie NationFebruary 01, 2013
The big screen's best use of the talents of the sarcastic, ever put-upon Mr. Gervais.American ProfileSeptember 28, 2011
Dozens of other movies have romped on the same grass. But Gervais spritzes everything in Ghost Town with a delightfully refreshing comic mist.Movie TalkSeptember 06, 2011
The Town isn't as impressive as Affleck's directing debut, 2007's Gone Baby Gone, but he handles the action scenes with brutal efficiency and gets terrific performances from his co-stars.Suite101.comSeptember 24, 2010
Yes, there are gags about mummy penises and canine halitosis, but other sublime moments recall Albert Brooks' social-satire heyday. Given the otherworldly elements, David Koepp's "Ghost Town" sweetly hits the heights of Brooks' "Defending Your Life."Florida Times-UnionDecember 24, 2009
The pudgy Brit looks right at home here on the big screen, starring in a romantic comedy in which we're asked to believe he might have a chance with Tea Leoni. And you know what? He makes us believe.
