"It's a wonderful afterlife"

A perky little romantic film about finding love through the astral plains of the afterlife. Elizabeth is a doctor totally engrossed in her work thus she doesn't really have a life. One night she has an accident while on her way to her sister's place. Enter David who is apartment hunting and he decides to rent her place after he finds her couch to be just right for him. One problem though Elizabeth well her spirit still lingers around so she proceeds to stake her claim on her apartment. So while one person refuses to join the afterworld, the other person still distraught over his wife's death refuses to join the living.
It is basically a light comedy with some amusing moments even though the tone I've used to narrate it ... might come across as a morbid horror flick. I actually enjoyed it even if I'm not exactly a fan of Reese Witherspoon. She is talented though no doubts about it. But I don't know. Mark Ruffalo is the main reason the film appealed to me. He is just a delight to watch. Playing a romantic lead suits him although I've seen him in various other roles too in films like "Collateral", "In the Cut" and "The Last Castle".
So it was a good idea to borrow it and watch it as some post Valentine chick flick treat.
