Forget about the plot - of course "ghost" movies can run into formula. What's amazing about this little film - which I just watched again after 30 years - is the acting by Hartley, Asner and Bosley. Besides being genuinely touching (with a very poignant moment regarding end of life decisions that was ahead of its time), this movie is absolutely hysterical at times. Hartley never misses a beat, and shows off her comedic chops brilliantly. But it's the interpersonal relationships, little quips and asides that make this so enjoyable. It's certainly better than anything running on network television right now - especially in regard to strong, intelligent female characters (who aren't law enforcers shooting people or lawyers).
