Sam Wheat is a banker, Molly Jensen is an artist, and the two are madly in love. However, when Sam is murdered by friend and corrupt business partner Carl Bruner over a shady business deal, he is left to roam the Earth as a powerless spirit. When he learns of Carl's betrayal, Sam must seek the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown to set things right and protect Molly from Carl and his goons.Written by
In her first role, Sondra Rubin playing a nun was ironic, because she never went out in public without make-up. She is the real-life mother of Bruce Joel Rubin, and was given a cameo in the film. See more »
When "Oda Mae" and "Molly" are straddling the rafters, they are obviously stunt doubles. See more »

Carl Bruner speaking.
Balistrari? Carl, it's me, John.

German VHS version was cut for violence (the man with the broken window in his chest) to get a "Not under 12" rating. Some TV stations aired the complete version. See more »
"Ghost" isn't very subtle, and similar themes have been done elsewhere with more depth, but I say just relax and enjoy. The best reason is of course, Whoopi Goldberg, who is hilarious and as always, very good. As for the story and the characters' reactions not being plausible, you really need to have a little imagination when you watch movies! I give any movie credit for not being bad, since there are so many dreary movies out there, and Ghost is not bad.
