Goofs

When Milo (as Thomas) is being chased by the dog when trying to get the stamps back, he waits for Julia, Penny and Harrison to enter the room before closing the door to stop the dog. Considering they are all spirits, they could go through the door and would not be harmed by the dog anyways. See more »

Very moving...
19 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I laughed at its funny bits and cried in the sad bits. Robert Downey Jnr was excellent as the leading character and the bus passengers provided some light relief. Everyone should have friends like these! Marvellous!
