Seriously ... It's the 1st time I have this kind of feeling when seeing a movie
18 January 2012 | by (Vietnam) – See all my reviews

The romance is super cliché. The horror is also very cliché. The humour, well, maybe less cliché.

But to combine those, you make quite a great movie. At first, I really don't know how it would feel to see a "romantic comedy ghost" movie. I know you will agree with me. You can't scream your lungs out in a funny movie, nor can you enjoy the romance and humour in a ghost movie.

But I did. I laughed. Then I screamed. Then I smiled. Then I laughed and screamed again. This movie gave me mixed feeling. Very entertaining, I must say.

Seriously, if you don't believe me, check it out!
