Just Like Heaven
Reese Witherspoon plays another spunky, smart character, and Mark Ruffalo is her love interest. It’s definitely a romantic comedy, and we don’t see enough of those these days. There’s also some melancholy, as the topic could be quite heavy if played differently. But the formula works, boy meets girl, etc. The twist is that there are metaphysics involved! Jon Heder, from Napoleon Dynamite, plays a psychic who helps the two communicate – kind of the Whoopi Goldberg role in “Ghost.” Sweet and thoughtful – and sometimes just a little uncomfortable, which might not be a bad thing.
