Our Score
In a movie blending the sentimental with the supernatural, Patrick Swayze stars as the murdered banker trying to warn girlfriend Demi Moore that her life is in danger. Whoopi Goldberg plays the psychic he communicates through, and she provides the comic moments to lighten the potentially maudlin atmosphere. In fact, Goldberg's performance is so good, she deservedly won a best supporting actress Oscar. The special effects are a real treat, the love-beyond-the-grave theme is very touching and the ending is a wonderful piece of schmaltz. Who says sweetness and light were, erm, dead?


The spirit of a murdered executive tries to find a way to help his girlfriend bring his killer to justice and enlists the aid of a fraudulent medium - who is amazed and baffled when her psychic powers turn out to be all too real. Romantic fantasy, starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Tony Goldwyn and an Oscar-winning Whoopi Goldberg.
