Storyline

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 gets in a coma. Meanwhile, a landscape architect named David Abbott moves into 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, and 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.

Really really good, and i hate chick flicks.
18 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I admit i am a girl who hates chick flicks, and had to be dragged to this film, and i'm happy to say this was freakin hilarious. just like heaven follows a male widow who moves in to an apartment inhabited by a ghost who can't remember her past. They find themselves in hilarious situations trying to help each other.Reese Witherspoon was fantastic and so was mark ruffalo. SO if your in for a good laugh,or a sweet,charming chick flick then Just Like Heaven is the movie for you!!!! If I enjoyed this anyone can.It's kind of a mix between ghost and a romance.Women will love it!!!Men will love it!!!Kids will love it!!! It's funny for everyone who's in the mood for a heartwarming comedy.
