David Koepp's 1998 New York City romcom could improve an amorous relationship, even if it's on a first date. I know one couple that the movie worked out well for. The story may be populated by ghosts, but don't let that put you off; at least one of them is naked.
This offbeat comedy about an Upper East Side dentist with death issues makes the best use of Manhattan's Carnegie Hill locations since "84 Charring Cross Road." The Met, The Carlyle Hotel, and Central Park get plenty of autumnal screen time. Take a NYC vacation without leaving your house.
Téa Leoni and Ricky Gervais are hilarious in this underseen gem. Even malcontents need love.
Rated PG-13. 102 mins. (A-) 4 ★s
