Movie Reviews

Encore!
Heidi Steffy | Erie PA USA | 02/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Be prepared to laugh. It is always a joy to watch Maggie Smith and Michael Caine play off each other. They are so accomplished. James Spaeder does a very good job holding his own with these two. This is not the average love story. After all there is nothing average about a ghost couple with a history of fireworks in their relationship. They have a lot to teach, and do it well just being themselves. In spite of the fact that everything seems to go constantly awry, all that unseen "help", Spaeder's character proves to be a clumsy but apt pupil. Just a pleasure to watch."

"A delightful romantic comedy with the talented James Spader, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, and even Sam Sheppard, it is set in Manhattan, with a lovely old home furnished in fabulous antiques, including two ghosts who were famous theatrical personalities in life. Spader inspires giggles with another of his always surprising comedic presentations, especially in his "fright" when the ghosts appear. The music is warm and the characters are rich. The dialogue is bright. The film offers a beautiful fantasy escape to upper class New York and a look into the publishing business - enjoy it with a glass or two of wine, and it will seem very believable."

"This film was funny and very different. Wonderful to see Maggie Smith and Michael Cain together with James Spader equally matching them in the acting department. A plesant enough way to spend a spare hour or so."

"A Fun and Funny love story. Caine & Smith are fabulous as always. Recalls the Topper movie and TV series. It's great seeing James Spader in a comedic role again."
