  1. A fright show artfully designed for the whole family, a comedy that all but the most impressionable children will likely get a kick out of.

    It's notoriously difficult to balance lighthearted humor with the spookiness a good ghost story requires, but director Rob Minkoff is surprisingly successful, delivering a satisfying mix of laughs and mild scares aimed at a young audience.
  3. 50
    Eddie Murphy is less offensive than Dr. Seuss.
  4. The special effects display is so lacking in imagination it turns into so much noise, just a flashy distraction from the stiff, stock cliches of the by-the-numbers script.
  5. Tame and witless enough to make me long for the ancient, dusty fright kitsch of ''The Munsters.''
  6. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    Mansion's drab comic strokes and narrative render the movie almost superfluous.
  7. 20
    Lamer than Tiny Tim on a damp London day.

A real shame. Aside from Eddie Murphy, everyone else is utterly forgettable and poorly executed. The special effects are average at best relying on old school gimmicks in a modern age, and it shows. Set pieces on the other hand are quite stunning and the movie actually does feel like an amusement park ride. Overall: An average movie that might be good as a rental for the kids (really young kids.) Expand

In the 80's and 90's he made some pretty funny and thrilling movies, but now he makes worthless POS films. (Daddy Day Care, A Thousand Words, Norbit, Imagine That, Meet Dave, Showtime, I could go on forever). This movie is just another one of those waste-of-time, brainless movies that you wonder how the hell got made. I'm so glad Murphy decided to take on the Shrek franchise, because that's about the only good 21st century movie he's made. Also, Tower Heist was okay. Expand

    Moronic, sophomoric, campy, unfunny, abhorrent. Every word coming out of Eddie Murphy's mouth is like someone excreting into my ears. TheMoronic, sophomoric, campy, unfunny, abhorrent. Every word coming out of Eddie Murphy's mouth is like someone excreting into my ears. The special effects are far below par. Everything about this movie made me want to leave the theatre, but I don't waste any bit of money, so I slowly tortured myself in order not to have thrown away twenty bucks. I will throw this movie down into the f**king pits for all it deserves if I can forget it. But my memory, unfortunately, is too good. Expand
