San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
A wonderful movie, sincere and inspired, with four terrific performances and a story that doesn't let up. The picture has the gentle, nourishing quality of a fairy tale that you want to believe, and the unsoftened impact of gut-level entertainment. [13 July 1990, Daily Datebook, p.E1]
88
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Jay Scott
It's an unpredictable, mesmerizing journey nearly every shady second of the way.
75
Chicago Tribune - Dave Kehr
There are still some astonishingly tender moments, including looks exchanged between Swayze and Moore that seem magically divorced from this summer of exploding jets, severed limbs and homicidal children. [13 July 1990, Friday, p.D]
63
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
One of the irritations of Ghost is that the Moore character is such a slow study.
60
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
A big sweet hit, tingly and glycerined in a phony way, but diverting.
