Comments: I thought this film was really funny and recommended it to a Flixster friend. She said she thought it looked cute. All of a sudden it didn't seem as funny any more. I can't explain it. It is cute, and it is funny. A lot of the funnies are those uncomfortable funny kind. OK. It's funny again. More Téa Leoni funny than Ricky G., though.

Summary: Bertram Pincus is a man whose people skills leave much to be desired. When Pincus dies unexpectedly, but is miraculously revived after seven minutes, he wakes up to discover that he now has the annoying ability to see ghosts. Even worse, they all want something from him, particularly Frank Herlihy who pesters him into breaking up the impending marriage of his widow Gwen. That puts Pincus squarely in the middle of a triangle with spirited result.
