excellent filmBy Becky from Norwich , 07 May 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a film about a boy who sees some ghosts and has them like friends but one day they have to go away. Years later the ghosts realise that they need the boy, now a man to help them sort out their unfinished business. This film has you laughing and crying. A delightful and what I would call a sit down and relax film. Give it a go.

Sweet comic fantasy for the whole familyBy ArrogantDuck (69 reviews) , 08 Aug 2013How did I let this little gem from the early 90's pass me by for 20 years?? This is amongst Robert Downey, Jr's best comedy performances as a businessman visited by the spirits of 4 people who died the very moment he was born and now need his help to right the wrongs in their lives before they can pass on into the afterlife. It's a really sweet, feelgood comic fantasy and I may have to hunt down a copy to keep.

Surprisingly good!By icehaven (9 reviews) from Birmingham , 16 Jul 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI wasn't expecting much to be honest, (only rented it due to dogged dedication to see every film RDJnr has ever made), but I was very pleasantly surprised how funny this was. The moment in the car when he first sees Milo again is proper hilarious. And considering the plot, kind of like a cross between Ghost and Quantum Leap, It's not even as cheesy as it could easily have been, apart from the end, but that's fair doos for what it is. Elisabeth Shue, though, is awful. Admittedly it's not much of a part, and anyone can look a bit amateur opposite Mr. Downey Jnr, but she truly cannot act, and I'm not remotely surprised she kind of faded away.
Anyway, it also really reminded me of Drop Dead Fred, very much in tone, but also literally in theme/plot (friends only he can see and hear, left him when he was a child, then come back when he's 30ish at a time of crisis in his life etc.) and occasionally actual scenes (particularly the meeting scene). I would't say it's a rip off or anything, just 'inspired' by, and definitely a great example of if-you-like-this-you'll-like-the-other.
So yeah, give it a go even if you don't normally like this kind of fluffy stuff, (and definitely essential viewing for fellow RDJ fans).
Feel goodBy Marion (30 reviews) from Cramlington , 06 Jul 2011A great Ron Underwood film (I like every thing he does) Mr Downey Jnr is great in this, especially when he does all the characters. Just a nice feel good film.
Love this filmBy a customer from Hertfordshire , 16 Mar 2011I must have watched this film a dozen times over the years and I still love it. Its simple and heart warming and Robert Downey Junior is gorgeous! Its a Sunday afternoon favourite.
