Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze are the passionate lovers whose romance is undone when the latter is murdered during a bungled hit arranged by a rival. The clever concept by screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin (director ofMy Life) extends outward into comedy (Swayze's character communicates through a sassy medium played by Whoopi Goldberg, who won an Oscar for this role), horror (the afterlife is populated by hell-bound demons and the like), and romantic complications (a handsome suitor, played by Tony Goldwyn, comes on to Moore while Swayze's spirit is still hanging around). Directed by Jerry Zucker, previously best known for codirectingAirplane! and similar broad comedies,Ghost is a careful balancing act of strong commercial elements, but at heart it is a timeless Hollywood tearjerker that easily gets under one's skin.--Tom Keogh
One of the best movies from the 90's Fantastic blend of romance, drama, suspense, comedy, and special effects in this decade old stroy about love after death.
When Sam (Patrick Swayze) is brutally murdered, his spirit, which is trapped between 2 dimensions, returns to earth to investigate the crime and protect his grieving girlfriend Molly (Demi Moore). After discovering that his death wasn't just an accidental mugging and his killing was orchestrated by a seemingly unlikely culprit, Sam realises that Molly's life is very much in jeopardy.
Desperate to communicate to Molly the danger she is in, Sam seeks the help of Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg, who won a deserved Oscar for this role), a confidence trickster/storefront psychic with big hair and an attitude to match. At first Molly is sceptical of Oda Mae's ability to hear Sam's voice (and so is everyone else) but after discovering that it isn't fake, she and Oda Mae team up to thwart the evil intentions of Sam's murderers.
"Ghost" was released cinematically at around the same time as "Always" and "Almost An Angel," and it is by far the best film of the 3. Its story and messages combine to assure the viewer, no matter what religion they may be, that although we will all physically die, we will never be truly dead unless we are forgotten and that love is immortality.
A Valentine's Film: The Love Between A Girl And Her Ghost When "Ghost" was released in 1990, it enjoyed an immense popularity. It was a different type of love story. There is supernatural elements- ghosts, demons, heaven, hell, the afterlife, a story with action that men could enjoy and comedy that could make anyone laugh at the right times, especially with the supporting role of Whoopi Goldberg's character. This DVD of the film features commentary and restrospective portions. It looks and sounds as good as it did when it was released in theatres. Ghost is an easy story to follow. It's perfect to enjoy for Valentine's Day. Patrick Swayzee (Sam) was murdered by a rival (Tony Goldwyn)in order to get his hands on a lot of money. Demi Moore, his widowed wife, becomes the victim of this same rival's schemes. But as luck would have it, Sam is'nt really dead. He's merely a ghost left around to save his wife and defeat the bad guy. Aiding Sam is a medium-pyschic (Whoopi Goldberg).
There are some genuinely romantic, exciting and comedic moments in this film. The much remembered love scene includes Patrick Swayzee (as a ghost)caressing Demi Moore as she busily makes a clay urn. The love theme for this film, which was also scored for orchestra, is the Righteous Brother's "Unchained Melody". If anything, this film helped to popularize the classic oldie song. Suddenly, after Ghost, Unchained Melody became somewhat of a romantic pop song and every couple just wanted the song as their song (performed at weddings, dedicated to them on the radio, etc and even newer versions of the song are still sung by artists today). The funny moments are with Whoopi. She is a fraud psychic, who does not listen to ghosts at first and is merely scamming people from their money. But when Same comes to her, she is able to really hear him. Especially funny are their scenes together. I.E. "The Bank Scene" in which Whoopi withdraws a fortune in cash and has to give it up for donation to nuns. Tony Goldwin as the villain comes off deliciously evil, scheming and money-hungry. The special effects used in the film were computer graphics. At this time, the new medium of computer imagery was making home in cinema. Even Disney used this in Beauty and the Beast. This film is five stars all the way.
a real 'weepy' This is a real tearjerker of a movie. Watch it with a box of tissues to hand. It essentially covers the theme of life after death and is about Sam (Patrick Swayze) and his girlfriend Molly (Demi Moore) and their lives after Sam is murdered. The real scene-stealer is Whoopie Goldberg as the medium trying to act as go between. She manages to inject humour into the role, which stops the film becoming too morose. Her reaction when she realises she has real psychic powers and is not just a fake conning bereaved people is hilarious. Well worth watching.
