It's actually pretty good, especially considering how corny the premise is.

All the performances are very sincere, especially Demi Moore's, so you can actually suspend disbelief and accept the concept of what you are watching. Much better than what I expected.

As old as this movie is the special effects around ghosts and the afterlife actually hold up pretty decently. They are subtle and low key enough that they don't detract from the experience.

Whoopi Goldberg plays a comic relief character but the comedy is never overdone. I could actually see watching it again sometime, much to my surprise. It's a nice comfortable movie to enjoy.

A great supernatural drama from the 80s! Great performances from all...and of course the film that made the Righteous Brothers famous again!

I am stunned people like this movie....IT IS SO BAD. The best scene is in the first 5 minutes in the elevator, at least that was funny. Besides the terrible 80s hair and style it's such a ridiculous movie. Whoopi is always great but she's about the only redeeming feature. Someone told me there was pottery in it, barely and that was ridiculous too.
Yikes!

Very good, Goldberg, Moore, and especially Swayze are excellent in this murder-mystery romance film.

An exceptional film with romantic, supernatural, and mystery themes, with two leads at their best. The audience gets to like them straight off, which makes us sympathetic to them when death enters the picture. The direction and storytelling works well, and most astonishing of all? This is one of those few times when Whoopi Goldberg is essentially playing herself... but not being annoying.
