About the Movie

An interesting hybrid of popular film genres, Ghost showcases the talents of its entire cast. While out on the town one evening, New York couple Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) are confronted by a mugger. After submitting to his demands, Sam is murdered anyway. He then finds himself a disembodied spirit, invisible to the living world, wandering without hope until he finds a spiteful spirit aboard the subway (Vincent Schiavelli) who gives him some helpful pointers on how to co-exist. Soon Sam comes back into contact with those he knew in life, and he begins to learn piece-by-piece of his close friend and co-worker Carl's (Tony Goldwyn) embezzling plot which caused his death; the apparent mugging was, in fact, a premeditated murder. In the meantime, Carl has designs on Molly, and Sam is determined to extract revenge. He contacts a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg), and together, the two set out to serve justice and stop the maniacal Carl from getting to Molly. Blending comedy, romance, action, and horror, Ghost was a box-office smash and managed to garner five Academy Award nominations, including "Best Picture," "Best Supporting Actress" (Goldberg), "Best Original Screenplay," "Best Editing," and "Best Score"; Goldberg won her first Oscar.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Ghost' is too slow moving at times, and a few of its special effects look incongruously silly, particularly those showing what happens to ghosts not as virtuous as Sam. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jun 25, 2013

Fresh: Ghost is a dazzlingly enjoyable pop thriller. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 25, 2013

Fresh: Ghost is an odd creation -- at times nearly smothering in arty somberness, at others veering into good, wacky fun. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jun 25, 2013

Fresh: A comedy, romance and supernatural thriller rolled into one, Ghost is a zippy pastiche that somehow manages to seem fresh even though it's built entirely out of borrowed parts. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Jun 25, 2013

Absolutely Beautiful

This movie is beautifully done. The acting, music, sets, plot, story...everything! 'Ghost' is one of the most amazing and touching movies I have ever seen. The words romantic, funny, sad, and uplifting describe this movie perfectly. I cry at the end, every time! It really makes you feel good at the end, though, and gets you thinking. Gorgeous movie, superbly done. A must-see.


This movie is really good. I'm glad it's on iTunes, now. Ghost just grabs your attention and interest and it doesn't get boring at any point in the movie. I've seen this movie many times because they play it often on abc family.

May you rest in peace Patrick Swazye

This movie still evokes strong feelings for me. What a beautiful love story. Demi Moore was great, and Whoopi Goldberg was hysterical. And Patrick Swayze, well, we are going to miss you very much. What a talent, full of grace, style, great dancer, not afraid to show the emotional part of himself. He will be sadly missed by many. His style and grace with his battle with Pancreatic Cancer, all of this in the public eye, will forever be, for me, the essence of the man. He will always live on with his performance in "Ghost". "DITTO"
