So what went wrong?
Well, Max has his faults. There were many women to whom he was not, shall we say, indifferent.
But you knew that, I mean, you knew that.
I thought it would pass. I think it's a sad loss that men have such an aptitude for love coupled with such an inability for managing it properly.

Good-natured ghosts teach lessons of love to the living
I really liked this film....admittedly not one of the top 100 of the decade but fun, light and clean enough for the entire family to watch. Maggie Smith and Michael Caine are, as usual, outstanding in their roles as fueding ghosts who have a bittersweet relationship even as ghosts. James Spader is excellent doing physical comedy. He is just having a good time in this role and the audience has a good time watching him. Great date movie. Fun and relaxing...
