From Amazon.co.uk

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best acting I've ever seen! 27 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I watched this film on TV recently, having never seen it before, I decided to watch it and see if it was as sad as people said. I too have NEVER cried at a film in my life, seriously, and I didn't think this would be any different. God was I wrong! The acting from both Moore and Swayze is absolutely amazing, and I began to completely feel Sam's frustrations when Molly can't hear him, and Molly's pain throughout the film. I think without good actors this film could have been quite bad, but with these two I honestly began to feel that the whole thing was real. At the end of the film there were tears in my eyes, something I didn't think would happen! If you havn't seen this film already I would seriously recommend it as it is one of the most touching films ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless classic 13 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
One of the most beautiful, and fun, love stories of all time.

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

By Great White VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This film has helped me through so many bad times. Round about the time this was released on DVD i lost my mum to cancer. This was the last film I watched with her so nowadays it has sentimental value. This is a perfect film to watch if you're depressed as it does make you feel better after you watch it. This is my fave movie ever. I watch this nearly every month because I love the movie so much. This cannot be repeated twice, there can't be a sequel to it, It's a golden tear film (meaning weepie) The power that this film has is unbelievable. If you have lost a loved one then you'd know the power that i'm talking about. The acting is superb. Patrick really does make you believe in this character and this nightmare he is going through and by the end you really do feel the magic that the character goes through. It does really make you wonder what that life beyond death is really like. The romantic side of this film doesn't miss a beat. Patrick and Demi's chemistry is paramount to the story and it doesn't feel faked, it feels real. The inclusion of Whoopi Goldberg's character gives it a lighthearted style humour which by the end has a message to it. Jerry Zucker who recent flicks before this one were Airplane! does a great job mixing the heartfelt sentimentality with the stand out humour that you get when Patrick and Whoopi are together on screen. Whoopi quite rightly deserved that Oscar she got for this role. Her acting was brilliant. Two cast members has been outlooked by every one but without there characters this movie might not have worked. I'm talking about of course Tony Goldwyn as Karl and Rick Aviles as Willie. The subtile acting brings out their most evil side and you are genuinly shocked when you found out he was in on it the whole time. How could you allow your best friend to be murdered? Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 30 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
Another classsic from the brilliant Swayze - how he will be missed! Bought on dvd to replace video because of the availability of subtitles on dvd - but a greatly loved film, great soundtrack and of course not only romance but humour! All the ingredients of a great film. Hugely watchable time and time again.

4.0 out of 5 stars a real 'weepy' 4 Mar 2003
Format:DVD
Ghost is a film that essentially covers the theme of life after death and is about Sam (Patrick Swayze), his girlfriend Molly (Demi Moore) and their lives after Sam is murdered. Sam's spirit tries to contact Molly and reassure her he is all right but Molly has no belief in the afterlife. As far as she is concerned Sam is dead. When Sam realises who is behind his death his concern for Molly grows and he becomes desperate to get through to her. By chance he comes across Oda Mae, a charlatan medium who is as shocked as Sam is when she realises in fact she can hear him and she does have psychic abilities.
Whoopie Goldberg is the real scene-stealer as the reluctant medium trying to convince a sceptical Molly that Sam is still 'alive'. She manages to inject real humour into the role, which stops the film becoming too morose. Her reaction when she realises she is really psychic and is not just a fake conning bereaved people is hilarious.
This is a real tearjerker of a film, a box of tissues to hand is a must, but it is a film that is well worth watching.

Brilliant. This film is one of those that we cannot get enough of. Having have gone through the experience of losing many of our loved ones, this film gives us the excellent feeling that we will be joining them in the afterlife when it is our turn to depart this world.

5.0 out of 5 stars A touching love story! 21 Jan 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
'Ghost' is a wonderful movie, an excellent romance about true love that lasts eternally. But the film also covers a variety of other emotions as well, it is sad, funny and sometimes violent.

Set in New York, the lead characters Sam and Molly (played by Patrick Swayze and Demi Moor) are very much in love until Sam is mugged and murdered in front of her by a hitman called Willie (played by Rick Allan) and his best friend Carl (Tony Goldwyn).

Even after death, Sam is still persistent to let his wife know that he is still watching over and protecting her. He is able to do this will the help of his old fraud/psychic sidekick Oda Mae Brown (played Whoopi Goldberg who is just as hilarious as ever). Plenty of twists and turns are ensured as well as some difficulties that lie ahead. However, nothing can stop Sam's love from finding it's way.

Now, I'm a male, but i'll hold my hands up when I say that I almost filled up at the ending, which is truly moving. 'Ghost' is a film that deservedly was nominated for five Academy Awards, and hasn't lost any of it's power since.

Highly recommended!
