Movie: Ghost Town

A fine bit of Hollywood fluff. Ricky Gervais, the brit who plays the lead, is hilarious, though his character transformation is not quite convincing. Tea Leoni is gorgeous. Among the funniest bits are the parodies of the hospital staff, including a doctor obsessed by her fake tan, during Gervais' two visits to the hospital.

Recommended conditional on being a romantic comedy.

Addendum: Among the many movies with "Ghost Town" in their titles is 1983's "Benji in Ghost Town". Sorry I missed that one.
