[to little boy sitting in ancient museum chairpiece, annoyed and patronizing]
No no, little boy! We mustn't sit on the chair. Do you know why? Because THIS is a priceless, irreplaceable piece of fine art from another millennium. And YOU... are a not-quite-formed, piece of temporary plasmic rubbish taking up space on this already overcrowded planet!

Kay (Sally Field) lost her charmer husband Broadway choreographer Jolly (James Caan) when he fell down the staircase at home. Three years later, she is finally ready to move back home. She wants to marry stiff Egypt archaeologist Rupert (Jeff Bridges). He is concerned about her past with Jolly and then his ghost shows up. Only Kay can see him and he's not satisfied with Rupert.
Sally is adorably flustered. She works really hard to sell this. Jeff Bridges is in a tougher position. He has to stay adorable despite disbelieving Kay. James Caan is perfectly good as the charming cad. It does get a bit sitcom-like at times. The movie is basically sold on the three legged acting foundation. This is a remake of a Brazilian film which I have not seen.
