Overworked doctor Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon) is on her way to meet a prospective blind date when her car is hit by a truck, and suddenly the movie starts telling us a new story, that of a widower named David (Mark Ruffalo), who finds a great apartment in San Francisco after a flier literally hits him in the face. And then Elizabeth suddenly shows up to yell at him, claiming it's her apartment. But before David can debate the issue, she disappears, rematerializing at inopportune times. After trying several useless exorcisms, David turns to a wacky occult bookstore owner (Jon "Napoleon Dynamite" Heder) for help, and is told that Elizabeth's spirit may not be dead after all. Unfortunately, the movie fails to fully make sense, which may be because it's based on a French novel (If Only It Were True by Marc Levy). The ultimate circumstances of Elizabeth's fate, and their bearing on why David can see her when no one else can, are hardly explained.
