I saw this film at the cinema on its release date in the UK and I was glad that I went.
The plot is simple:
Witherspoon plays a Elizabeth Masterson, a doctor who's a workaholic. On her way home one day she is involved in an accident.
David (Ruffalo) rents an apartment. One evening Elizabeth appears and starts telling him to get out of her apartment. At first he thinks he's imagining things but then realises she's a ghost -- the question is will she accept that?
The film starts off funny but, as it progresses, it gets sweeter. He spends his time trying to straighten out the mess they're both in whilst trying to convince the people around him that he's not going crazy (he's the only one who can see her).
I love supernatural romance and this is one of the better films in that genre. The characters are believable and the development of both plot and characters is well handled. There are one or two silly scenes in the name of comedy but they are, fortunately, not many.
