This colorful, eccentric, sometimes naive and ridiculous comedy tells about the fact that there are actually no exes. If you miss Downton Abbey or yearn for the light humor of Miss Marple, you can watch this movie by Edward Hall, who worked on both of the above projects.

3. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Mark Waters directed Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, Just Like Heaven, and also made Matthew McConaughey look into the eyes of all the women he cynically broke up with.

5. Ghost Graduation

Spanish story about a simple teacher who loves his job and knows how to deal with the most difficult teenagers. He could have had an excellent career if not for his peculiarity – he sees the dead and can communicate with them.
