Trivia

The address which Rachel gives Eddie - 330 Central Park West - does not, and could not exist in reality, as all residences on Central Park West have odd-numbered addresses. The even-numbered address side of the street is actually the side of the street that Central Park borders. See more »

A must see for Tommy Lee Jones fans
10 July 1999 | by (virginia, usa) – See all my reviews

How do you stop your dead wife from harassing you? Hire a good detective who can tell her to stop. Tommy Lees Jones portrays a down on his luck gumshoe is approached by a man who is being followed by his dead wife. Jones figures if the man is crazy enough to offer his money, he's just crazy enough to help him. Is she dead? Check the refrigerator, take a cruise but stay out of the church. This made-for-tv film keeps you going, wondering just who is seeing things. Don't close your eyes for too long or you just might miss something. If you like a good mystery, this one is a sleeper-keeper. You might have to look on the back shelf of the video store to find it but however it's worth the search. A great movie for a rainy weekend afternoon.
