Because someday, trust me, I'm gonna need help movin' a body. When that day comes, I don't wanna hear any shit from you.

Just Like Heaven (2005)
Chosen by Brian Marshall who had this to say 'a guilty pleasure film starring the attractive Reese Witherspoon and the equally hot Mark Ruffalo. An enjoyable rom-com with supernatural elements though the cynic in me much preferred the alternate ending.'

Not horrid but Ruffalo seems an odd choice for this kind of film, never fully convincing as a romantic lead.
It pretty much goes through the motions offering no surprises, competently but dully made.
The alternative ending is a very amusing joke but would be an absolutely terrible way to end this film (even the original book was not as mean and fixed things for it's sequel).
The actual ending (the deleted scene alternative was only made as a joke which suggests they may have had more fun making the film than I did watching it) may not be a surprise but there something to be said of delivering the expected, no one wants to feel their investment of time has been wasted.
