Molly tells Sam that he "leads a charmed life". This is a line from William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Macbeth also claims to lead a charmed life, meaning he cannot be killed. Immediately after making this claim, however, he is killed. Sam is killed after seeing a production of Macbeth. See more »
Willie Lopez returns home and calls someone--presumably Carl--to tell him he couldn't get Sam's codebook, because Molly came back home. But Molly was only out of the apartment because Carl coaxed her into leaving, and she wasn't gone for very long. So, Carl should know that he wouldn't have had enough time to get the booklet, and he should have known that Molly was coming back home when they parted company. See more »

There are two different versions for the same scene. In one Oda Mae talks to Molly about Sam' s ghost behind Molly' s apartment door. However, in the other version, Molly comes down to the street and meets Oda Mae, and at the next scene they are discussing about Sam at a coffee place. See more »
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.
