Elizabeth Masterson, a dedicated doctor in San Francisco, had almost no time for anything. When her sister with two kids set her up on a date, she gets into a tragic car crash and goes into a coma. Meanwhile, a landscape architect named David Abbott moves to San Francisco and, coincidentally, into Elizabeth's apartment for rent. While at the apartment, Elizabeth's spirit haunts him. She doesn't remember who she is, who her family is or what she did - All that she remembered was her apartment and where everything was. To settle the arguments, David agrees to figure out who Elizabeth really is. When they get close to figuring out who she is, they eventually find love with one another and as they finally know who she really is, they learn that fate really has put them both together.

David and Elizabeth's apartment building is really about six stories tall, but the view from the roof (done with CGI) is one from a much taller building. They look down upon other buildings that are of a similar height. See more »
There are inconsistencies in what material objects Elizabeth can(not) touch or pick up. Since she is a fantasy character, she can do whatever the writers say she can do. See more »
this is a nice, light-hearted fun comedy. it is slightly different to other comedies, in that the story is original. the concept is a bit weird, but interesting and different.
reese witherspoon is very good in the film. she portrays a niceness and has a touching sensitivity which comes across nicely. there is a nice chemistry between the male and female lead characters. it is believable and interestingly fun.
the apartment where some of the conversations between the two main characters takes place, is very suitable. there is a nice view out of the window and the sofas and arrangements of furniture, give a cosy and warm feel.
i very much liked the ending of the film. A bit like a fairytale where the end fits the puzzle.
the film improves as you watch it, and i appreciated it more, once the film was over.
