Mark Ruffalo’s scruffy irritability makes for just the right tonic to Reese Witherspoon’s latest romantic comedy, which otherwise consists of as much cotton-candy
fluff as might be expected. She plays a dear, departed emergency room doctor who haunts her former apartment – and the sad sack (Ruffalo) who has moved in. When these two team up to figure out how to get her out of her purgatory – he’s the only one who can see and hear her –
they prove to be an adept screen team, repeatedly bringing a comedic gracefulness to contrived hysteria.
