My favorite character in Ghost is Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg), a phony psychic who, to her shock, suddenly starts contacting real spirits.

The first spirit is Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze), a recently killed ghost who needs Oda's help in warning his girlfriend Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) that his killer will soon come after her. He pesters Oda until she relents and talks to Molly, who is at first understandably skeptical of ghosts, psychics, and the like. Eventually, though, she believes. Meanwhile, Sam needs to find out who his killer's accomplice was, and why he was killed.

Although the story about Sam and Molly was obviously the focal point of this movie, I would have enjoyed this film more if it had focused on Oda's hilarious misadventures as she is a more fascinating character than either of the ill-fated lovers. If they had been a subplot, or not even in the film at all, this movie would have been vastly improved.

My Rating = Two Stars
