Maxie ★★ 1985 (PG)

Highly predictable, and forgettable, comedy where a ghost of a flamboyant flapper inhabits the body of a modern-day secretary, and her husband is both delighted and befuddled with the transformations in his spouse. Close is okay, but the film is pretty flaky. 98m/C VHS, DVD . Glenn Close, Ruth Gordon, Mandy Patinkin, Barnard Hughes, Valerie Curtin, Harry Hamlin; D: Paul Aaron; W: Patricia Resnick; M: Georges Delerue.
