Bittersweet romantic comedy set in New York in which a misanthropic dentist (Ricky Gervais) finds he has acquired the ability to see ghosts after he is clinically dead for seven minutes during a routine medical procedure and is persuaded by the spirit of a recently deceased husband (Greg Kinnear) to break up the engagement of his widow (Tea Leoni), falling for her himself. A melancholy tone pervades director and co-writer David Koepp's cross between "A Christmas Carol" and "Topper," but the laughs are there, along with an overriding message about living life in service to others, and ultimately "letting go" of our deceased loved ones. Some rough language and brief profanity, sexual humor, partial male nudity and drug references; acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
