Dead lawman Roy (Jeff Bridges) and Nick (Ryan Reynolds) seek out bad souls back on earth in "R.I.P.D."

About this Article

"R.I.P.D." sounded sort of promising. Think of it as "Ghost" meets "Men in Black," this tale of a recently-deceased cop recruited to the Rest in Peace Department and partnered with a Wild West lawman. The mismatched pair is tasked with capturing rotting spirits who roam the earth, but the comic book-based "R.I.P.D." is a dud that squanders a decent cast and succeeds neither as the comedy nor the action film it purports to be.
