Ghost Town funniest movie of the year
Ghost Town funniest movie of the year

Ghost Town
Now Playing


In spite of what that snappy "Patrick Jayne" says on the ad for The Mentalist, there are psychics and there is also an afterlife, and if something as serious as CBS's weekly foray into the world of the dead, The Ghost Whisperer, isn't your cup of tea, have I got a recommendation for you (and that recommendation comes with two great belly laughs and at least one smarting knee slap). And, trust me, in today's world, a good belly laugh is worth its weight in gold.

In perhaps the funniest movie I've seen all year, Ricky Gervais (from the English version of The Office), is a tight-assed dentist (I found myself thinking: this guy has to be a Virgo) who goes in for a routine colonoscopy, and then finds himself being visited by dead people after he goes home. Checking in with the surgeon (Kristen Wiig in a delightful change from Saturday Night Live), he finds out that while on the operating table, he croaked for seven minutes. Sort of a Dead Zone scenario with laughter and a gorgeous Tea Leoni, who plays a recent widow (of the first ghost Gervais sees, cheater Greg Kinnear) who's also curating a mummy exhibit. Gervais' character, acting on the advice of Kinnear's ghost (who doesn't want his widow hooking up with a goody-goody lawyer) uses his dental expertise to win her. Only nothing goes as planned, and Ghost Town quickly turns into a mix between Harvey and a completely hilarious The Sixth Sense, with Gervais coming to face his selfishness and help the dead finish old business. A tiny bit hokey, but I found myself with "something in my eye" more than once and left with a huge smile on my face.

Go see it, whether your stocks have bottomed out or not, and laugh again.
