Very attractive cast propels this comedy/fantasy about the ghost of a deceased husband (Caan) who pays a visit to his widow (Field) as she's about to remarry (Bridges). Robert Mulligan's touch of genius is at work one more time. The story may be a bit strained at times, but the results are satisfactory altogether in the end.
