OMG so FUN!
27 December 2015 | by raybartlettSee all my reviews

This movie was fun from the very beginning, and though there was some fear it would fall apart along the way, luckily it didn't ever lose steam. It keeps pushing right along with lots of great humour and a bit of romance too. You gotta love a movie that not only steals a scene from another movie, leaving the viewers saying out loud, that that scene is a rip off, when lo' and behold one of the characters actually admits they are scene stealing from the said movie! So fun! So refreshing.

The lead actor looking a bit like Patrick Swayze and a Ghost being central to the story line just added a bit more fun to the already wonderful story. There is so much unpredictable stuff in this film it all adds up to a wonderful sitting.

It joyfully steals from plenty of movies that came before but with it all being tongue in cheek, it's all so worth it. Yes, I loved this movie. Merry Christmas Sarah!
