Just Like Heaven DVD Review

Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo star in the romantic comedy, Just Like Heaven - a flick about love, loss and a psychic named Napoleon Dynamite. Find out if you should shell out the bucks for this new movie on your next date!

Just Like Heaven - Heaven Sent?

From the previews of Just Like Heaven, you'd probably think you had the plot all figured out right away. Mark Ruffalo's character, David Abbott, moves into a new apartment and quickly realizes that it's possessed by the ghost of a young woman (Reese Witherspoon's character, Elizabeth Masterson). Of course he does all he can to rid her from his new pad, but nothing seems to work. Eventually David enlists the help of the local occult book store owner, who is none-other than Napoleon Dynamite - or at least the actor who played him. Napolean tells David to move out of the apartment because while he can't see Elizabeth's spirit, he can feel that she's not leaving anytime soon!

Just Like Heaven - Otherworldly Love

Instead of taking Napoleon's advice, David decides to help Elizabeth find out who she really is and what happened to her. During their search, David and Elizabeth start to open up to one another and slowly you can tell that a freaky kind of love is blossoming. No one else can see Elizabeth, so there are some great scenes with David carrying on like a lunatic, seemingly talking to himself!

Just Like Heaven - Transparent Plot

The cool thing about Just Like Heaven is that you don't necessarily know where it's headed the whole time. Almost all of the characters will draw you in - even the supporting cast shines during their on-screen time. Mark and Reese have great chemistry and you start rooting for the two of them to hopefully overcome their tricky situation and get together. Occasionally the storyline gets a bit cheesy, but you've gotta expect some cheese in a romantic comedy - especially one about a guy falling in love with a ghost.

Just Like Heaven - DVD Features

Join Reese, Mark and Jon in a Meet the Cast featurette, with interviews from each actor. Laugh through the gag reel and zip through all the deleted scenes. There's commentary from the director and cinematographer and a behind-the-scenes feature as well.

Just Like Heaven - Bottom Line
Just Like Heaven isn't going to be sweeping the Oscars, but it definitely holds its own in the romantic comedy world. It has sweet, sappy parts and some really funny lines. Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) doesn't have a huge part, but without it, the movie wouldn't quite be the same. A great flick to check out on a first (or fourth) date or even with a group of your girlfriends.

    Oh my gosh. Its been so long since I've seen any halo fans like me, I'm definitely able to do voice overs in the cast but it kills me so much that I dont got my 360 live anymore but instead on xbox one. Hopefully I'll do something about it omg. Im in love with halo machinimas such as Red Vs Blue and so on.
