Hello Again

DVD review by The Movie Snob

Hello Again (D). I was entirely unaware of this 1987 release before The Borg Queen suggested that we watch it. Blissfully unaware, I might add. Shelley Long (Night Shift) stars as a thirtysomething housewife married to an up-and-coming plastic surgeon (Corbin Bernsen, Major League). She dies in a freak accident, and a year later her dippy, new-agey sister somehow brings her back from the dead with a goofy incantation. Needless to say, her reappearance tends to startle a lot of folks. This is a weird movie -- I guess it's supposed to be a comedy, but it is not very funny at all. For long stretches, it almost seems to be a serious exploration of how people would really deal with such a bizarre situation, but it's unconvincing in that regard. In short, seeing this movie did not enrich my life.
