Ghost
1990
Gothamites Sam and Molly see their romance shattered when a street thug kills Sam during a mugging. But love endures beyond the grave when a spectral Sam learns that Molly is in danger, and he must find a way to warn her before she suffers his fate.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

More proof that comedians can handle drama with ease: Wacky laff-factory director Jerry Zucker turned out one of the most moving (and traditional) romances of the nineties without even trying. What set out to be a thriller told from a ghost's perspective turned into a sexy love story on the lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry of Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, and in light of their decline ever since, they're something to see at the peak of their charisma. Some of the gags invoke groans and still more could have been done with the core concept of a ghost's dilemma, but this is a great story that still holds power years later, and one of the best farewell scenes of its kind.
