SEVEN, Friday, 10.30pm, M ( 2008)
Ricky Gervais ( left) stars in this offbeat romantic comedy as Bertram Pincus, a misanthropic dentist who becomes cursed with the ability to see ghosts after an incident during a colonoscopy ( don’t ask). Gervais’ talent stretches far enough to make a convincing, if unlikely, romantic lead. Greg Kinnear co- stars as a recently deceased man who enlists the help of Pincus to prevent his widow ( Téa Leoni) from remarrying. The film sticks tightly to the genre’s formula and is a touch predictable but there’s enough originality and solid performances to help it stand above the rest.
