Synopsis


Ghost
An interesting hybrid of popular film genres, Ghost showcases the talents of its entire cast. While out on the town one evening, New York couple Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) are confronted by a mugger. After submitting to his demands, Sam is murdered anyway. He then finds himself a disembodied spirit, invisible to the living world, wandering without hope until he finds a spiteful spirit aboard the subway (Vincent Schiavelli) who gives him some helpful pointers on how to co-exist. Soon Sam comes back into contact with those he knew in life, and he begins to learn piece-by-piece of his close friend and co-worker Carl's (Tony Goldwyn) embezzling plot which caused his death; the apparent mugging was, in fact, a premeditated murder. In the meantime, Carl has designs on Molly, and Sam is determined to extract revenge. He contacts a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg), and together, the two set out to serve justice and stop the maniacal Carl from getting to Molly. Blending comedy, romance, action, and horror, Ghost was a box-office smash and managed to garner five Academy Award nominations, including "Best Picture," "Best Supporting Actress" (Goldberg), "Best Original Screenplay," "Best Editing," and "Best Score"; Goldberg won her first Oscar. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

    Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze are a couple madly in love with each other when Swayze is murdered - but just won't entirely go away. His ghost is hanging around, protecting Moore from some bad guys and trying to figure out a way to give someone the information needed to nail his killer. The movie veers between genres: horror, sci-fi, romance, mystery. And then, there's Whoopi Goldberg in another signature role (she won an Oscar for this one); she plays a medium who is shocked to find that she really IS gifted with second sight - and her confusion as she comes to grips with her newfound power is hilarious to watch as she works with Swayze to pass on the incriminating criminal information. It's a tear jerker, especially the scene in which ghost and Goldberg revisit Moore in a passionate, loving, romantic sayonara interlude set to the music of the Righteous brothers. Marvelous sentimental schmaltz that works perfectly in every way.

    If you’re interested in The Spirit World and the connection we have with our departed loved ones, you will love Ghost. Even though this move depicts a romantic love between a man and woman, I feel my mother’s presence with me whenever I watch it. And when I find life here on earth challenging, I watch it to remind me that my Spirit Family is always watching over me and sending me their love and support.

    The late Patrick Swayze at his best

    Posted

    Patrick Swayze was outstanding in any movie that he played in. This one however is very touching. It has a lot of the paranormal in it, and Whoopie Goldberg is absolutely fantastic in helping to be a "medium" and the go- between for the dead and the living. The movie is both funny, sad and has a touch of "spooky and goblins" in it when the bad guy gets what is coming to him. This movie has a romantic side to it with Demi Moore being the main love interest. She and Patrick have a great charisma in the movie. All acting, by three well known artists was fantastic.

    This movie is a classic romance with several dance sequences and has a good story line. It has many great actors to keep you interested in this fantasy style movie. All romantics will recognize "The Unchained Melody" music and other great music. Everyone that has a romantic bone in their body, needs this movie.

    Since my twenty-something daughter loves romantic movies, the reviews suggested Ghost would be a perfect gift for Christmas. A classic movie, even I will appreciate seeing it again after all these many years. And of course, Patrick Swayze is too good to miss.
