"Heart Condition" is far better than "Ghost"
9 February 2004 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

As "Heart Condition" was made at roughly the same time as "Ghost", it was not a "copy". It ("Heart Condition") isn't a "love story" (as "Ghost" is), which let it's comedic portrayal overshadow "Ghost", in my opinion.

GREAT movie!
