What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star
Peter Feldman Ghost Town is an engaging comedy romp that is delivered in the right spirit. Both funny and a tear-jerker.
Shaheema Barodien This is the kind of honest and engaging story-telling that Woody Allen lost sight of. And if you never quite warmed up to that singular comedic force that is Ricky Gervais, get ready to become a fan.
|Chicago Sunday Times
James Berardinelli Ghost Town is one of those romantic comedies that never quite clicks. At times, its humor is effective, provoking chuckles and laughs. At other times, the comedy feels forced and awkward. The romantic element is equally hit-and-miss.
Peter Travers With expert help from Kinnear and the irresistible Leoni, Gervais rides the hurdle of his first big-screen leading role in high style.
C. Fuchs A blast to watch, in a droll, low-key sort of way.
Tomatometer Ricky Gervais' consistently sharp performance and beautifully dry execution transform this otherwise mainstream comedy into an endearing, funny, and altogether snappy romantic comedy. With ghosts.
