David rents an apartment and wants to be left alone. The spirit of Elizabeth shows up and insists the apartment is hers. He agrees t o help her find out who she was and they start falling in love with each other.
Bad romantic comedies make you scoff at their absurdity; good ones make you wish your life was that absurd. Just Like Heaven is just smart and likable enough to trigger that wishing. David (Mark Ruffalo, Collateral, You Can Count On Me) finds an amazing apartment in San Francisco--only to discover it's haunted by the spirit of the previous tenant, an overachieving doctor named Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde, Election).
There's something not quite right about Elizabeth's afterlife; against his better judgement, David agrees to help her investigate her life...but finds himself digging into his own as well. The plot takes a twist that some viewers will see coming, but Just Like Heaven doesn't rely on the surprise alone; the revelation takes the story in a new and just as entertaining direction. Witherspoon and Ruffalo are two of the best romantic leads around, but the surprise is how well their contrasting flavors (perky and moody, respectively) mesh, creating a sparky, engaging chemistry. Also featuring Dina Waters (Freaky Friday), Donal Logue (The Tao of Steve), Ben Shenkman (Angels in America), and Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite). Crisply directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), who carefully keeps the supernatural from getting silly and the romance from getting gooey. --Bret Fetzer

The cast were all amazing, but the two leads just stole the show, such great on screen chemistry and a great build up to the fabulous climax!! Truely a film for the ladies or that all important first date..!!..
100 percent worth watching, just dont forget the tissues!!
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.
The other characters are very good and add to the story and don't distract, the psychic bookshop assistant is especially good. Recommend it as a highly watchable, light movie.
Meanwhile, David Abbott (Mark Ruffalo) is looking for a furnished apartment with a comfortable couch. He's running out of options until a flier for a sub-lease flies across his path. It's perfect, and David is excited about moving in.
Until he sees Elizabeth in his apartment. She insists she lives there and he is the one trespassing. When she appears and disappears, David decides she's a spirit and tries everything he can to get rid of her. When that doesn't work, he agrees to help her find out who she is so she can get peace and leave him alone.
The pieces begin falling into place, but by then, David and Elizabeth have grown beyond their initial dislike and enjoy each other's company. Will the truth about Elizabeth be good news or bad news?
I went into this movie expecting a light romantic comedy, and there are some very funny moments, especially at the beginning as David and Elizabeth must come to grips with each other. However, as the movie progressed, the story grew more serious. I was amazed at how much I grew to care for the characters. The scene where David thinks Elizabeth is out of his life choked me up, and I did need tissue for the climax.
The story itself is basically predictable. Several major plot points are obvious long before they happen. However, there was a twist or two I didn't see coming. And the movie has some themes worth thinking over after it ends.
The movie is carried by the leads. Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo do a great job in their rolls.Read more ›
An under-rated hit film. The Ghostbusters homage is pure genius!
