Dr. Bertram Pincus (Gervais) doesn’t like people very much. In fact, the antisocial dentist does everything he can to avoid interaction with other human beings. Unfortunately, he gets more than he bargained for when he is released from the hospital after undergoing a standard procedure: he can see dead people, and they can see him.

Suddenly, every ghost in New York City wants Pincus to help clean up their unfinished business. Dapper Frank (Kinnear) is the most persistent ghost, badgering Pincus to help keep his widow, Gwen (Leoni), from making a big mistake. Gervais is perfect as Pincus, whose deadpan expressions make obvious his disdain for people. His comic timing is spot on throughout the film. Kinnear makes Frank likable, not an easy feat since he apparently wasn’t such an upstanding guy when he was alive and married to Leoni’s Gwen.

Aasif Mandvi appears as a dentist sharing Gervais’s office, and Billy Campbell is Gwen’s new love interest. SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE star Kristen Wiig is a scene-stealer as Pincus’s surgeon, particularly when she is trying to avoid telling her patient what went wrong during his procedure. Dana Ivey and Alan Ruck also appear as ghosts in need of help.

    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it seem like some of these responses appear like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I’d like to keep up with anything new you have
