We gave it a C+

This movie gives sensitivity an icky name. Michelle Pfeiffer plays a swell wife and mom, two years dead, who continues to visit her still-grieving husband (Peter Gallagher), thus making him of no real use to their teenage daughter (Claire Danes), who could use more than a moping dad who talks to ghosts. C+
