Ghosts Can't Do It is a 1990 American dramedy-fantasy film written and directed by John Derek, and starring Bo Derek and Anthony Quinn.[1]

The film was shot in 1989 and released on home video the same year. However, the film did receive a theatrical release in 1990. It was awarded Razzie Awards for "Worst Picture" (tied with The Adventures of Ford Fairlane), "Worst Actress" (Bo Derek), "Worst Director" and "Worst Supporting Actor" (Donald Trump, who appeared in a small cameo role).


Scott and Kate are happily married although there is a 30 year age difference between them. After Scott suffers a heart attack and is unable to make love, he commits suicide and becomes a ghost that only Kate can see and speak with. To make it possible for Scott to return as a human, they conjure up a plan to have a young man drown so that Scott can take his body.
