An uptight business man (Robert Downey Jr) has to help four ghosts with unfinished business. These four different characters have been linked to him since he was born (their bus crashed just as his mother gave birth on the way to the hospital), and have watched over him as he’s grown up. Strange premise, but don’t let that keep you away from this warm and funny film!
Robert Downey Jr, who rarely over-acts, gets the chance to show off a bit by acting like each of the four characters as they briefly inhabit his body to complete various tasks. He becomes a:
- African-American mother of three (Alfre Woodard)
- Timid opera singer (Charles Grodin)
- Young waitress (Kyra Sedgwick)
- Small time thief (Tom Sizemore)
Here is the trailer. The trailer seems dated now, but don’t let that stop you from watching this fun movie!
