Zucker, known for overboard comedies like "Airplane!" and "Ruthless People," changed tack and directed this undemanding romantic thriller, which was the surprising top grosser of 1990. Murdered investment consultant Sam Wheast (Swayze) attempts (from somewhere near the hereafter) to protect his lover, Molly (Moore), from imminent danger when he learns he was the victim of a hit gone afoul. Goldberg is medium Oda Mae Brown, who suddenly discovers that the powers she's been faking are real. A winning blend of action, special effects (from Industrial Light and Magic) and romance.
