Ghost Town ( M): A mis­an­thropic English den­tist who can talk to ghosts may seem an un­likely lead for a Hol­ly­wood ro­man­tic com­edy, but as Ricky Ger­vais ( The Of­fice ) plays him in this ami­able su­per­nat­u­ral fan­tasy, the char­ac­ter and the film work beau­ti­fully. Dead­pan di­rec­tion ( David Koepp), sparkling Man­hat­tan back­grounds and an en­gag­ing cast ( in­clud­ing Greg Kin­n­ear and Tea Leoni) make this sad, funny film one of the year’s most agree­able sur­prises. — Evan Wil­liams
