Gervais stars in this romcom, which is more com than rom as it's hilarious. Ghost Town is about a lonely dentist (Ricky Gervais) who's a misanthropist. When he has an operation which results in a near-death experience, he starts seeing ghosts and meets Frank (Greg Kinnear). I have loved Greg Kinnear ever since I saw As Good As It Gets years ago, one of my favourite films.
For some reason, this received average reviews... I don't know why.
I am, admittedly, a big Ricky Gervais fan (The Office, Extras, The Ricky Gervais Show..etc) but I think anyone with a good sense of humour will like it.
The humour is oh so Ricky and you can really see he ad-libbed his way through the film, he blows everyone off the screen.
