Ghost Town Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P373404~Ricky Gervais~rickygervais]] and [[Performer~P200274~Greg Kinnear~gregkinnear]] star in director [[Performer~P97774~David Koepp~davidkoepp]]'s fantasy comedy concerning Bertram Pincus, a dentist who gains the ability to communicate with the dead after momentarily dying during a routine medical procedure. When the dearly departed begin requesting favors from Dr. Pincus, the self-absorbed dentist finds that living with ghosts isn't easy. Fortunately, recently deceased businessman Frank Herlihy ([[Performer~P200274~Greg Kinnear~gregkinnear]]) agrees to keep the dead at bay if Dr. Pincus will just agree to prevent his widow, Gwen ([[Performer~P41892~Téa Leoni~téaleoni]]), from tying the knot to humorless human rights lawyer Richard ([[Performer~P386570~Billy Campbell~billycampbell]]). According to Frank, Richard is just another morally corrupt gold-digger out to take the wealthy Gwen for all she's worth. At first Dr. Pincus agrees to go along with the ruse, though it isn't long before he begins to question his supernatural sidekick's true motivations. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
