I just saw the advance press screening of this well-crafted 103-minute above-average movie by director/screenwriter David Koepp.
The plot/story has a few neat twists that were unexpected - contributed positively to the tight and well-written script - that delicately touched on loyalty/fidelity, self-centeredness/self-absorption, happiness/contentment, death/sadness/grieve,...
The acting ensemble delivered with great comic timing - ensuring that the jokes and funny moments were well-received. Strong on-screen chemistry between Ricky Gervais and Tea Leoni lended credibility to their interactions. Ricky Gervais, Greg Kinnear, and Tea Leoni turned in delightful solid performances.
I had high expectations for this light-hearted movie and they were met. I wish the movie was longer - as I enjoyed the humor, acting, and story very much.
The sophisticated humor in GHOST TOWN has a appreciative audience.
Good date movie.

I went to the Wednesday, 10th Screen testing of the 'Ghost Town' and I found it to be a VERY funny movie. I would tell anyone to go see it. It did however have TWO F bombs in it, one which was in the very beginning of it. The Actors did a good job, and it was throughly enjoyable!

There was no sex, no violence, no profanity, & no car chases. I loved it! It was an intelligently-written movie that was funny and wise. I wish Holleywood (or anyone!) made more movies like this one, Bravo!
