Just Like Heaven

Just_like_heaven Reese Witherspoon continues to slough off all remnants of talent she exhibited early in her career (see “Freeway”). “Just Like Heaven” is a wispy maudlin comedy that’s akin to watching a bowl of corn flakes turn soggy for an hour and a half. Mark Ruffalo (“13 Going On 30”) fails in his attempt to single-handedly elevate an abysmally bland story about an out of work landscape designer who has the misfortune of falling in love with the caught-in-transition ghost of a coma victim (Witherspoon) after he moves into her furnished San Francisco apartment. “Just Like Heaven” perpetuates the Frisco curse that not one great movie has been made in the hilly city since Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo in 1958.
Rated PG-13. 95 mins. (D)
