Worth Watching - July 14: Ricky Gervais' Ghost Town Trailer
This is what you get when you ask for originality in Hollywood. Ghost Town stars British comedian Ricky Gervais as a dentist who dies for seven minutes while getting a colonoscopy. When he awakes, he discovers that he can see ghosts and his usually quiet life is suddenly turned upside down. Gervais is actually a much funnier comedian in real life than he is on the big screen, which is generally why this looks so bad. I'd almost rather watch Over Her Dead Body instead, but thankfully this doesn't look that terrible. I'm actually curious to know more about Greg Kinnear's character's story and might check this out simply for that. But overall I'm unimpressed, but maybe I'm just not getting it. Did anyone else laugh?
