Plot: A lonely landscape architect falls for the spirit of the beautiful woman who used to live in his new apartment. Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 16 Sep 2005
Wonderfully acted comedy; sensitive, silly and sweet (by paulala343)
Just saw a preview of this film last night, and I have to say, I can't wait to see it again. Usually, I'm not a huge fan of "otherwordly" type films, but this one is original and fun. Mark Ruffalo and Reese Witherspoon have great chemistry, and the script is smart. He's a depressed landscape architect trying to get his life back together; she's a disgruntled spirit, wondering what ever happened to hers. After their initial frustrations she hates how he doesn't use coasters or pick up trash in HER apartment, he hates how she appears without notice in what he now <more>
considers HIS apartment they try to piece together the course of events that have left her in this state of limbo. What I loved about this film is David and Elizabeth's progression from animosity to genuine affection, as they alternately pester then rely on one another. He becomes dedicated to trying to help her, despite appearing insane to everyone in San Francisco, except for a wonderfully quirky psychic bookstore clerk played by Jon Heder aka Napoleon Dynamite. Not since Patrick Swayze quarreled with a Whoopi Goldberg in "Ghost" have I been so amused by a spirit haunting a mere mortal. This is a great chick flick, but would work out nice for a date, too. Just have a tissue handy!
Really really good, and i hate chick flicks. (by lovadoll)
I admit i am a girl who hates chick flicks, and had to be dragged to this film, and i'm happy to say this was freakin hilarious. just like heaven follows a male widow who moves in to an apartment inhabited by a ghost who can't remember her past. They find themselves in hilarious situations trying to help each other.Reese Witherspoon was fantastic and so was mark ruffalo. SO if your in for a good laugh,or a sweet,charming chick flick then Just Like Heaven is the movie for you!!!! If I enjoyed this anyone can.It's kind of a mix between ghost and a romance.Women will love it!!!Men <more>
will love it!!!Kids will love it!!! It's funny for everyone who's in the mood for a heartwarming comedy.
Mark Ruffalo and Reese Witherspoon are both excellent, but sometimes when two astounding actors act opposite one another, a movie flops-- this is not such a movie. Just Like Heaven is the best movie I have seen all year. These two actors put all they've got into their performances, and it shows. The movie is sweet, it has a fairy-tale feel, which is comforting in an uncertain world. The chemistry between Reese and Mark is amazing and the story is unusual and entertaining. The plot is fairly predictable, but the audience is thrown a few curve balls. There is uncanny humor, yet the movie <more>
maintains a poignant sense of reality. I give Just Like Heaven 10 out 10 stars.
This couple does romantic really well (by aharmas)
It has been a good season for romantic comedies. Earlier on Diane Lane and John Cusack proved that comedies didn't have to be stupid, as it was properly demonstrated in a recent sex comedy. Stick to the conventions, find people with good chemistry and good looks, and you might strike gold. Witherspoon has shown incredible amounts of charm in previous outings, and this time she is on fire. The amazing surprise is Mr. Ruffalo, as her smitten "friend". He is a pleasure to watch, matching Witherspoon scene by scene and stealing a few on his own. He has fantastic comedic timing and <more>
knows how to charm his audience.The film itself will not break any grounds, instead it pays tribute to a few classics in the past. What it doesn't do is draw too much attention to itself by being too clever, dry, or indulge in the use of four-letter words gratuitous. It recalls comedies of the past, when characters were developed and actors work their magic on the screen.There are a couple of interesting twists along the way, and some of the romantic scenes are lovingly shot and directed. The supporting cast is very effective, making the experience light and yet very fulfilling. A+
I rated this movie a nine because I feel that it has really accomplished what movies like this should accomplish. It IS a chic flick, and it is not going to be nominated for any academy awards, but it is has a very solid story with a great cast and great chemistry. Unbelievable as it may be, the story is one that should be told, and was told well.This is a movie that everyone can enjoy from beginning to end. It is entertaining, genuine, and original, bringing a fresh and worthwhile love story to life in a way that many others have tried and failed.I would compare this movie more to films like <more>
50 First Dates and A Walk to Remember than I would others such as Maid in Manhattan or Wedding Date...
Why is a movie starring the wonderful Reese Witherspoon labeled a chick flick? Seems to me any male would want to see it. The viewer cannot help but love her character in this movie. Motherhood and marriage must agree with her, as she has never looked better.Of course the storyline is quite fantastic and not very realistic. But who cares? I get up in the morning to face reality every day. I don't need to see too much of it at the movies.Mark Rufalo did a fine job of acting, but to me it was Reese's movie all the way. I wonder why our movie critics and voters for Oscars and such <more>
don't give much weight to comedic actors and actresses? It takes just as much talent, and actually there are in my estimation less who really pull off comedic roles well. Reese Witherspoon has done it many times, and doesn't disappoint here. Most modern so-called comedies to me are simply not funny. However, this movie did make me laugh. The guy who works in the psychic bookstore was hilarious. But this movie isn't all about comedy. It does touch at the heartstrings of any member of the human race who feels left out, feels like they are missing it. Usually a movie has one person who the viewer can really relate to. In this case, both leads played people who I could relate to.If constant special effects, extreme violence, streams of foul language, or total realism are for you, then perhaps you should skip this movie. For the rest of us who can enjoy a romantic comedy, I can't imagine not being entertained by this movie. I left it feeling great.
When I went to see this movie, I went in with high hopes and I was not disappointed. I enjoy Reese as an actor, and am becoming a fan of Mark Ruffalo's. Reese, as always, was the perfect main character that you just fell in love with from the very beginning and I really like Mark's ability to be a very physical actor, which Just Like Heaven took wonderful advantage of. The movie's storyline is good, it does have a couple of somewhat predictable turns, but what movie doesn't? The acting is very well done, I haven't laughed that much in a very long time and Reese and Mark <more>
have great chemistry on-screen. If you are looking for a really good chick flick to make you laugh, cry, and feel every motion in between, this is a great movie for you.
What a sweet story! After trying all weekend to see it, on my third attempt I finally did it had been sold out . I don't get excited over most films that come out, I'm a bit cynical, but what a sweet movie this is! I would have made some minor changes to the storyline, and a couple parts could have been developed more, but what I thought during the first 20-30 minutes would turn out to be a predictable, somewhat recycled story, turned out to be a delightful sweet touching romance that had me going AAWWWWW! I even teared up once or twice. Mark Ruffalo is a hottie! I wish I could have <more>
been in Reese Witherspoon's shoes when she kissed him, he's such a boyish cutie. I found it very entertaining. Definitely worth seeing!
Mark Waters' "Just Like Heaven" on the surface is ordinary romantic comedy with a pleasant premise. It's a "chick movie". The movie does however, end up being a very pleasant surprise. "Just Like Heaven" does have several things going for it. Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo have a magical chemistry that overcomes the spiritual confides and constraints of the story. Screenwriters Peter Tolan and Leslie Dixon have cleverly adapted Marc Levy's "If Only It Were True", which would have been a bad movie title. "Just Like Heaven" also <more>
possesses a lyrical romantic quality, and a narrative twist. All welcomed and appreciated. "Just Like Heaven" is simply about fate and love.Reese Witherspoon plays Dr. Elizabeth Masterson. We glimpse Elizabeth being great with patients in a San Fransisco hospital emergency room during a 26 hour shift. She receives a coveted residency slot. Then the attending physician orders her to go home and get some sleep. On her way to dinner at her sister Abby's a very good and concerned Dina Waters home, Elizabeth is involved in a horrific traffic accident.Three months later, melancholy David Abbott Mark Ruffalo happens upon Elizabeth's 2 story apartment. It is a steal given the majestic view of the Bay, and the month-to-month lease. Something is out of place with David. David eats Chinese take out and watches a DVD of his wedding. Suddenly, Elizabeth appears demanding he immediately leave her apartment. Elizabeth realizes that she is ethereal. David on the other hand, now thinks he has gone off the deep end. He tells his friend and therapist, Jack funny Donal Logue , that he is literally seeing someone "who is emotionally unavailable". Elizabeth persists, so he consults a book clerk/ spirit expert Darry the slacker funny Jon Heder from "Napoleon Dynamite" . Darryl is hysterical in his spiritual insight and his sensing "some strong feelings" in David and Elizabeth's relationship. A lot of "Just Like Heaven" is contrived aiming for an ending; however, director Mark Waters is a romantic at heart. So clever and wacky contrivances are forgiven.Witherspoon's Elizabeth is a young doctor out to save the world, but she is all alone. Her neighbor, Katrina Ivana Milicevic describes her as "... like a cat lady, but without the cats." A telling description. David, who in his past life was a master landscape architect, guards a a painful secret. In Mark Waters' world Elizabeth and David were fated to meet. Reese Witherspoon is at her spunky and spirited best. She also brings a sense of wonder to Elizabeth. Mark Ruffalo really shines in "Heaven". He delicately balances David's sadness, and David's realization that only he can see Elizabeth. Ruffalo imprints great compassion and a sense of humanity in David. Ruffalo has this charming every man quality and decency much like Tom Hanks and even James Stewart. Witherspoon and Ruffalo's innate touching chemistry make believable their love story.Not to worry-- it all works out. Well, there are surprises and twists along the way. Director Waters and writers Tolan and Dixon get their job done. Ruffalo and Witherspoon are simply a joy to watch together. Perhaps is it is "Just Like Heaven."
