Ghost Town (2008, USA) C-102m. ** D: David Koepp. Starring Greg Kinnear, Ricky Gervais, Téa Leoni, Dana Ivey, Alan Ruck. Agreeable romantic fantasy comedy: When anti-social dentist Gervais dies during a routine operation and is revived he can suddenly see ghosts in Manhattan, and they all have unfinished business, especially suave Kinnear, whose widow lives in Gervais' apartment building. Some funny moments kudos to Brit Gervais, but script is paper thin and doesn't fully exploit its potential. Kinnear is fine.
