Storyline

Paul is a meek electrician who, with his nagging, dominating wife Beatrice, moves to a new house in a neighborhood stricken by a series of robberies. That night, the gang responsible breaks into their house, beats up Paul, murders Bea, and makes off with the valuables. As Paul is coming to terms with his wife's death, she appears as a ghost only he can see and hear, nagging him into hitting the streets (later with his garbageman neighbor) and avenging her, with some interesting methods of doing so...

User Reviews

poorly directed and acted
10 March 2002 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

While not the worst film of all time, She's Back certainly must be in the top ten. The acting seems almost of the level of a high school play, and while Carrie Fisher probably does the best job even she acts like she can't wait to get the movie over and move on to something else. Beatrice, whom Fisher plays, comes across as so annoying that you have little sympathy for her, even though she is the one who had been killed by the gang. The direction also is pretty lacking in a lot of areas; with some leadership behind the camera this flop could have been made a lot better. A few moments are actually funny, but overall this one is better left unwatched.
