Just Like Heaven

[Amazon Link] [3.5
stars] [IMDb Link]

Not bad! An inventive premise (you should stop reading now if you want to be totally surprised by it): Reese Witherspoon plays a workaholic doctor who gets into a nasty traffic accident. Later, Mark Ruffalo rents her vacant apartment, but Reese's spirit shows up, demanding that he move out. Gosh, I wonder if they will fall in love?

I believe this is a chick flick. Because I think men are likely to wonder why Reese's spirit can't pick up a phone, but can lie on a table and ride in vehicles. This doesn't spoil the movie, but it does make one wonder about the physics of spirits.

Geek alerts: Jon Heder is in it, as is Rosalind Chao from Star Trek.
