Carl finds Sam's code book in a shoe box. He could easily have taken it earlier, or told Willie exactly where to find it, since he helped Molly pack up that shoe box himself. See more »
Oda Mae Brown:
My mother had it. My mother's mother had it. They both had the gift. They always said I had it, but I never did. I never had it. They told me what it was like. They told me all about it, but now that I got it, I don't think I want it. So do me a favor, just go away. Find somebody else.
Somebody else? You're out of your mind.
Oda Mae Brown:
I'm gettin' there fast.

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 is easily Swayze's 2nd best film. It has a great love story, good acting, and holds up nearly 30 years later.
The film tells the story of Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore). Sam is a banker and Molly is an artist, and they strongly love each other. Sam then gets murdered by his business partner Carl (Tony Goldwyn), and is now on Earth as a spirit. He then meets a psychic, Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) and must have her help him protect Molly from Carl and his goons.
The film had a pretty basic story, and had sweet romance to it. Swayze and Moore had great chemistry, and he also shared great screen time with Whoopi Goldberg.
The movie went in a pretty fine pace. Some parts kind of dragged on for too long, but wasn't bad at all.
The ending is sad, especially if you watch it now since Patrick Swayze is no longer with us. But regardless, Ghost is still a pretty good movie and I would call it a classic without a doubt.
