Goofs

When Norman the dog jumps up at Kelly and she falls back against the mirror, causing it to topple over backwards and break, the glass shatters into tiny fragments. But towards the end of the movie, when Lynn and Kelly are sweeping up the remains of the mirror and tipping them into a bucket, the pieces of glass are much larger. See more »

Quotes

Lynn Farmer: [Gravedigger sees Norman the dog and screams] He won't hurt you.
Gravedigger: Who said that?
Kelly Farmer: Me
Gravedigger: Oh.
Lynn Farmer: Yeah, that's just Norman, he wouldn't hurt anybody.
Gravedigger: But... you were over there!
Kelly Farmer: No, that was me.
Gravedigger: [Screams] You're at two places at the same time!
Lynn Farmer: We're twins, silly.
Gravedigger: Oh... ohh... twins! Oh, twins!

Sweet Movie
17 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie totally made my childhood Halloween! Even now when I watch it I think its a bit lame but its still a sweet movie.

The acting is alright, but in a movie where the stars are under 10, what else can be expected? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are adorable as the girls in this movie. Despite their age their acting is as good as any 20-something star on a daytime drama and no one really complains about their acting.

Some scenes still make me laugh with my sister when we watch it, and we always rent it for tradition on Halloween. Seriously, it doesn't deserve the bad reviews. Its a sweet kids movie, if you want intensity and drama go watch something else.
