A ghost stranded in New York City is determined to communicate with the woman he loves. He teams with a "psychic" who is amazed to discover her powers are authentic when she becomes his reluctant ally as he masters the skills of the spiritual world. The winner o f 2 Academy Awards including Best Supporting Actress.
The biggest hit of 1990, Ghost is part comedy, part romance, part supernatural thriller. Patrick Swayze, previously best known for Dirty Dancing, stars as Sam, the banker who is killed following a mugging. Caught in a limbo between here and the afterlife, he uses Whoopi Goldberg's fake psychic as an intermediary to warn wife Molly (Demi Moore) that his death was no accident but a murder and that she is in danger too.
Ghost's original popularity and notoriety originally arose not from its dealings with the supernatural but the scene involving Moore fondly astride her potter's wheel fashioning a somewhat phallic-shaped vase, with Swayze fondly astride her. So infamous did this scene become that it's now more likely to raise a chuckle than a sultry sigh. As for the rest of the movie, it still somehow manages to engage despite the awkward juxtaposition of lachrymose melodrama and zaniness. Demi Moore, whose massive Hollywood success was always a mystery to some, is a little flat as the tomboy-coiffed Molly, her tears occasionally seeming onion-induced. Swayze, however, delivers as Sam while Whoopi Goldberg turns in the best performance of her career, delivering the requisite zip and sass to what otherwise might have been a morose movie.
On the DVD: Though well restored, DVD enhancement has only served to emphasise the slightly quaint feel of the special effects here--Ghost was made just prior to the digital era. Otherwise, this is a good package and an essential purchase for fans. There's a 22-minute featurette, "Remembering the Magic", in which scriptwriter Bruce Joel Rubin explains that the film was inspired by the scene in Hamlet in which the Prince meets his Father, and how initially appalled he was that his masterpiece of the supernatural was to be directed by Jerry Zucker, previously responsible for Airplane!. They also reveal that Tina Turner was originally cast for the Goldberg role. Zucker and Rubin team up for a funny commentary track. --David Stubbs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This film will never age and is a garanteed uplifter for any woman feeling low.
Watched alone with a glass of wine or in the company of others for a chick flick night to remember Ghost is a definate must have for anyone with slushy taste.
It will have you laughing and crying the whole way through
Sam Wheat is killed during a botched mugging but his spirit is stuck in spirit world limbo. Watching over his left behind lover, Molly, it becomes clear that there is far more to his killing than it at first seemed. Enlisting the help of kooky psychic Oda Mae Brown, Sam must protect the now in danger Molly whilst simultaneously getting to the bottom of his murder.
Ghost is a multi genre offering, not just purely a romantic weepy that its detractors would have you believe. Romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, comedy and no little bit of spooky shenanigans all fuse together to form Jerry Zucker's monster box office smash of 1990. Made for $22 million, it has gone on to make a staggering $517 million worldwide, proof positive that the public by and large will buy into a simple story as long as it's put together well with the afore mentioned elements. The central theme of true love reaching from beyond the grave to prove itself eternal is something that most folk find endearing in a non sickly kind of way, with it naturally helped by having a cast list firing on all cylinders.
Tho Jerry Zucker's (Airplane/Top Secret) direction is uneven, it's to be expected when this is after all his first solo feature, he is however well served by his stars. Patrick Swayze wasn't wanted for the part of Sam Wheat, but he fought tooth and nail for the project and nailed the role with gusto and emotionally driven force. Demi Moore as Molly was never lovelier, trimmed short hair to reveal a gorgeous young face, her feeding off of Swayze's energy provides the film with its credible impetus.Read more ›
irrespective of ones viewpoint on life after death or that old chestnut of good vrs evil the movie is about loss. this can be taken as a euphemism for many "live" losses we experience where we end up as observers in an unpalatable and seemingly endless pit of sadness.
for anyone that has ever smoked, the scene where the "crazy" ghost knocks ciggies all over the floor but cant have one is remenicent of a time when shops were not 24 hours and to have none at 11pm was in fact hell thinking it would be nearly 10 hours before being able to buy more.
sure, the effects are dated, but they were actually cutting edge at the time. thats the problem with portraying the unreal, the technology becomes dated. however stepping beyond that the emotional charge will be just as relevant in another 20 years when the technology of today seems antiquated.
i had actually forgotten how great this film was. when it was first released i had the battle of being the "tough 20 year old" and stifleing my tears. now i am 40 and have gotten over that laughable stage i feel free to express my emotion and wailed along with my partner.
excelent stuff, and testemony to the great abilities of the late mr S and demi moore. and lets not forget what a wonderful portrayal of the medium whoopi goldberg did! how very funny indeed.
