Ghost Town (2008)

A typical romantic comedy (think Just Like Heaven or Scrooged), but with very little pretension which was nice.

Bertram the British dentist in America doesn't like people at all. After undergoing surgery, he discovers that he can see ghosts. The ghosts all have unfinished business that they need help with and Bertram is their portal into the living world. He's not at all interested in helping them, but when one of the ghost jobs needing his attention involves an attractive single woman, he plays along.

I expected little from this film as the plot seemed so contrived, but the plot didn't much interfere with some of the really hilarious scenes that Ricky Gervais nails.
