Intense thematic movie, funny at times

Whoopi gives a HILARIOUS performance. That is definitely a main reason on why to watch this movie. Very intense, violent movie about seeking revenge, putting things back in to the right places, etc. Not such a positive message, but each scene leaves you wanting to know what happens next. You'll be sure to laugh and cry.

One of the GREATEST ghost movies ever made!

This one never gets old! I wasn't able to see it when it used to show on TV because I was way too young, under 6, even though I wanted to. It's definitely not for young children. Good for mature young teens about 15, or preferably 16 and up. Sam (Patrick) and Molly (Demi) are a beautiful couple in love. One night while on a nice walk together, Sam gets mugged violently and dies while Molly watches. Losing the love of her life, Molly will never be the same. After Sam discovers the after-life as a ghost, he encounters his murderer who is also after Molly. He must try to worn her by using a woman who talks to the dead named Oda Mae (Whoopi). Together they must destroy his murderer and best friend who is also mysteriously part of it. GREAT film, extremely beautiful and emotional (and can't forget Funny!). There is a lot of violence and some gore, creepy content (like scary looking demons who take away bad people who have just died) also a mean-spirited ghost who trains Sam to move objects. One passionate & innocent love scene, some kissing. Language is pretty tame. Good messages throughout. Sam protects his love and makes a new great friend along the way. Ending is sad yet heartfelt, Sam gets to hold Molly one last time using Oda Mae's body. If you haven't seen it yet, you'll be glued to the screen! One classic movie you'll want to buy and watch over and over!!!
