Might be described as a muddy, cliché-ridden sudsfest that lurches uncertainly between comedy and soap opera without finding its emotional or visual footing.

The film tries hard to avoid cliché but doesn't get very far.
These formidable actresses [Redgrave and Daly], abetted by a persuasive Connick, and by Hurt as the most genteel and benevolent of ghosts, set a high standard for a splendid ensemble cast.
Though picture is at times undermined by a lack of unifying perspective, its glimmers of greatness are a testament to the talent involved.
