Product Description

Product Description

Romantic thriller in which murdered yuppie banker Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) returns to Earth as a ghost to solve his own murder and protect his grief-stricken wife Molly (Demi Moore). As he cannot communicate directly with his wife, he turns to fake medium Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) for help. Nobody is more shocked than Oda Mae to discover she has the genuine power to contact the dead. Includes the famous, much-parodied midnight pottery sequence.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 extends 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 co-directing Airplane! 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, Amazon.com

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.

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 ›

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

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.

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.

Amazingly, this movie, almost 20 years old, has not aged. Even the special effects which I expected to look a bit crude and naive are more or less convincing. Walter Murch's editing earned "Ghost" an extra star in the overall rating.

Thanks to the creators of the DVD, the picture and sound have been restored and are as good as ever. I am very pleased that I bought this DVD as a New Year gift for myself.

This is One of my favourite films of all time. I have watched it a million times and the best is right at the end scene which leaves me with tears in my eyes. Make sure you have plenty of tissues next to you. I won't say anything in case I spoil the story for someone who hasn't seen this film, but, If you don't have this film, it is a must buy it, recommended to all

Ghost is a delightful film with fantastic performances. Whoopie Goldberg and Patrick Swayze bounce off each other with superb timing and the effects are great. I really liked all the interviews as well, which includes some really interesting insights from the Writer and Director.Worth every penny I have to say. Watch and enjoy!
