5. "Ghost Town"

Gervais plays dickish dentist Bertram Pincus, a lonely man who goes out of his way to avoid all human contact. After a near-death experience, he has to start steering clear of ghosts, too. The charming comedy's got plenty of hilarious moments, but the best is the deadpan back-and-forth between Gervais and Kristen Wiig's surgeon, who's explaining he died ... for seven minutes ... during his colonoscopy.
