Ricky Gervais And Greg Kinnear Ready For "Ghost Town" - Review And Movie Trailer

You can always tell when summer is drawing to a close. The movies start to get a little better in anticipation of the Thanksgiving and Christmas blockbuster season.

On deck is "Ghost Town" starring Greg Kinnear and Ricky Gervais.

In real life, Ricky Gervais does not believe in ghosts, but put them on a movie screen and he's more than happy to see dead people.

Gervais, who stars in the supernatural romantic comedy "Ghost Town" told reporters at the Toronto Film Festival:

"I'm a skeptic across-the-board on ghosts and things like ESP and the afterlife. But it doesn't change the fact that the romance of Hollywood lets you take someone on a journey against their will, really, if it's done well."

"Ghost Town" casts Gervais as cynical New York dentist Bertram Pincus, who loves his job because people can't talk to him while he's working on them.

A near-death experience while under anesthesia for a Colonoscopy leaves Pincus with the ability to see ghosts - and they appear to him everywhere, in the park, at his office, in the bathroom, and in his bedroom. Pincus is the only person who can allow them to finally rest in peace, but only if he is willing to help them clear up unfinished business they have with the people they loved while still alive.

Greg Kinnear co-stars as Frank Herlihy, a manipulative adulterer in life who continues his devious ways after he's killed in a freak sidewalk accident. Frank promises Pincus that he can make the annoying ghosts go away forever if he will break up the approaching marriage of his widow, Gwen Herlihy (Tea Leoni).

"Ghost Town" runs 102 minutes, and is due in theaters September 19. The film is rated PG-13 for some strong language, sexual humor and drug references.

This movie may be a good way to usher out the dull summer sophomoric comedies, and get the ball rolling toward the upcoming fall blockbusters.
