Sam is deeply in love with Molly, even after he dies during a street stalk. Sam turns into a ghost and finds out that his supposed best friend Carl is behind is murder and that Molly is in danger. In order to help Molly and convict Carl, he communicates to an apparently false psychic, Oda Mae, the responsable for the funniest parts in the movie. An amazing, effective and powerful blend of romance, comedy, suspense and fantastic!
