Movie Thoughts: Just Like Heaven

This romantic comedy was family viewing tonight. Even Olivia seemed intrigued at one point, but then lost interest, which is a somewhat good summary of the movie. I like both Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo as actors, so I enjoyed it on the whole, but it's very light and fluffy. Lots of suspension of disbelief. But I'm also a firm believer in not demanding more of a movie than it purports to give, and I knew from the beginning that this movie would be fun yet forgettable. So with that in mind, it's diverting enough. :-)

(And it has some funny lines from Jon Heder, of "Napoleon Dynamite" fame.)
