Paul Hogan was offered, but passed on the role of Sam Wheat, because he felt it wasn't funny. However, Paul Hogan offered Patrick Swayze the role of Steve Garner in his supernatural comedy Almost an Angel (1990), but Swayze turned it down to do this film. Elias Koteas got the part instead.

The motion picture concerns upon the starring's killing (Patrick Swayze) who returns from beyond to save his lover (Demi Moore) harassed by a devious killer . He's helped by a likable psychic (Woopy Goldberg) .
In the film there are a wonderful love story , humor , tearjerker , suspense , action and a little bit of horror.
Runtime film is appropriate , isn't slow-moving but adjusted and the movie is very entertaining.
Woopy Goldberg's interpretation is fantastic and humorous , she was Oscar winner to the category for supporting cast , a very well deserved prize .
The lover couple , Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze , are riveting but overblown sweets.
Maurice Jarre musical score is fascinating but principal song is copied from Alex North's theme.
Direction by Jerry Zucker is first class , better than his previous films like ¨Airplane¨ , ¨Top secret¨ or ¨Ruthless people¨.
The movie will appeal to fantasy buffs and love stories fans.
Rating: 6,5/10 . Good and well worth watching.
