R.I.P.D. - M.I.B. with ghosts?

The other day, I saw Jeff Bridges on the Jimmy Kimmel show, promoting his new movie, R.I.P.D., with sexy co-star, Ryan Reynolds. Now, I've seen trailers for this movie many times, and every time I see them, I always think that the premise is very similar to Men In Black, but with ghosts instead of aliens.

The movie starts off with a young cop trying to take down a suspect. Then he learns about a secret organization that is in charge of keeping aliens/ghosts from disrupting normal human life. There is the seasoned veteran of the organization training the rookie. There are ugly aliens/ghosts. And then they learn there is a plot to destroy the world. I don't know if there are any other similarities between the movies, as I have not yet seen R.I.P.D. But I do plan on watching it. I love M.I.B. and this one looks just as funny.

Here's a look at both movies:

For those who have seen both movies, tell me, are they similar? How was R.I.P.D.? I look forward to hearing your thoughts! :)
