Jerry Zucker's fantasy mixes comedy, thriller and romance (throwing a pot will never be the same again) and has become an enduring classic.
Patrick Swayze as Sam Wheat and Demi Moore as Molly Jensen. He's killed in an apparently random mugging, leaving her heartbroken.
But then it transpires that he was murdered to stop him exposing a major fraud - and this puts Molly in danger, because the incriminating information is in her possession.
Sam's ghost, still earthbound, discovers the only way to warn her is through Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg), a fake medium who suddenly finds she's his channel to the living.
