It's a fantasy comedy entitled "Ghost Town," which takes place in New York City concerning a dentist who gains the ability to communicate with the dead after experiencing a Near-Death Experience during a routine dental surgery. (Many people who have Near-Death Experiences return with psychic abilities.)
The ghosts who appear in the movie have "unfinished business," which is one of the biggest reasons that ghosts do appear to humans. When the ghosts begin requesting that the dentist act as a point person between the living world and the spirit world, the dentist does his best to ensure that the messages of the dead reach their intended recipients. (But not before we get to see how narcissistic and self-centered he is. Once he believes that the spirits are "real" and he acquires some empathy for them, then he is helpful.) It's an excellent movie and the shots of New York City are very enjoyable.
Starring Ricky Gervais, Tea Leoni, Greg Kinnear, Billy Campbell, Dana Ivey, Kristen Wiigmore. This movie was released 9/19/2008 and is rated PG-13 due to some strong language, sexual humor and drug references. Distributor: Dream Works
