Just Like Heaven
Source: Catholic News Service
Charming romantic fantasy about a dedicated young doctor (Reese Witherspoon), comatose after a near-fatal car accident, whose spirit "haunts" a grieving widower (Mark Ruffalo) who has rented her former apartment. Despite a somewhat formulaic setup and an uncertain start, director Mark Waters directs with just the appropriate gossamer touch, and the highly appealing leads play with the requisite delicacy. Some sexual innuendo and banter, mild profanity, a few crass expressions, brief rear hospital nudity, mild medical procedures including incisions, some occult thematic material, and an exorcism used for comic point make this best for adults (and older adolescents). The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
