A "woman's movie"for everyone
6 February 2001 | by (Victoria B.C.) – See all my reviews

As usual, the only films worth seeing these days are on the History Channel, or the Women's Television Network.

Such a WTN movie is "Giving Up The Ghost", the story of a grief-stricken wife who is revisited by her husband's ghost. If you think you've heard this one before, stop.

It's not your usual adrenaline-driven cliche-riddled vehicle for some glam star, but, at times, a case of "Be careful what you wish for" I'll say no more, not wishing to mar your enjoyment of a fresh and highly entertaining movie. Go, see...and I do mean that it's a movie for everyone
