If Patrick Swayze comes back as a ghost, let's all just agree to call the fucking ghostbusters, alright?

I didn't like it. I just felt zero chemistry between stupid sexy Swayze and tomboy Moore. Her acting in this role comprised of summoning tears. Whoopi Goldberg was the MVP and kept this movie from the pits of sappiness. I was expecting a lot more from all the subsequent cultural references to it. Sweet loft apartment. Fav scene: Whoopi in her fancy fuchsia outfit visiting the banks.

I always thought this film was creepy, particularly the end, where Swayze enters Goldberg's body for one last go-round with Moore. I mean, it's still Whoopi's body right? Anybody else besides me got a problem with that?

This is a two-hour film that could have been shorter. Felt like there was too much time spent with Swayze figuring out his ghost powers and then trying to figure out his own murder. Ah, but we get some stupid, sexy Swayze. Jeez, what a beefcake. What a hunk! He's so gentle and loving. Gotta wipe myself off with a rag.

Pretty sappy and unintentionally hilarious romantic tripe that took the country by storm in the early 90's. Swayze literally comes back in wraith form to do some sleuthing to find out who killed him. Whoopi is in one of those "magic negro" mystic roles that's fairly insulting. Overall it's pretty cheesy but it has a few scenes that are memorable.

Only after watching this do I realize that it wasn't considered a punchline at the time. That on its own is hard to believe, but... a Best Picture nominee? What? How? It's charming enough in a schlocky kinda way, and Whoopi is great in her silly role, but it's so sappy and ridiculous and unintentionally funny. S'bad. 13th film of 2018.

Beau film, même si c'est un classique guimauve, il n'en demeure pas moins un joli film fantastique avec une chanson universelle. J'aurais bien écrit quelques compliments sur la prestation hilarante de Whoopi Goldberg mais elle me dégoûte comme de la merde maintenant. En revanche Tony Goldwyn m'a fait un putain d'effet ! Quel beau-gosse ! Bien plus que Patrick Swayze, qui est à fond dans son rôle, pareil pour Demi Moore. On passe un bon moment.

I love it with Whoopi Goldberg but a supporting character does not a solid film make. Talks down constantly to it's audience, and while the merging of genres can lead to interesting scenes the film's frequent jumps from maudlin sentimentality to a witty yet somewhat cynical comedy (with a good dash of silly) to a murder mystery feels jarring enough to remove you from the whole experience. Same with the possession thing, what the fuck?!

Its bad but it's that special kind of 90's bad where its easy to laugh at everything. The dialog is awful, Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore are bad at acting. The pottery scene and every cheesy love moment is laughable with how over the top the cheese is. But there's a lot of foreshadowing and somehow everything that's brought up is used. Whoopi Goldberg is hilarious. And there are a couple of really good shots and scene transitions.
