Episode #285: “Ditto” | Ghost (1990)

We’ve seen enough movies by now to know that you should never walk down a dark street at night after leaving the theater. It didn’t work for the Waynes and it didn’t work for Sam Wheat.

Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg star in Ghost.

This continues our “Love is in the Air” month, which will include: Pretty Woman, Ghost, Wild at Heart, and Mermaids.
