"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.
