Jane Anderson liked this - here's a summary of her remarks in RT...
...one of the most successfully romantic dramas I have ever heard; no slushiness or forced poignancy. This is a simple story of girl meets boy. The problem is that she keeps seeing dead people, and they all want her to carry out their final requests. After years of turning them down, will a one-night stand with a shy 28-year-old virgin change both their futures?

Produced by David Blount.
