User Reviews

Brilliant Movie
31 October 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie at least 20 times. I enjoyed it every time I watched it. It is a pleasure to watch a movie without drugs, sex, violence to make it enjoyable. The plot is realistic with rich people trying to make big money at the expense of nature and trying to hoodwink the local citizens, (like some politicians in todays world) Some people believe in ghosts some don't, but in this movie the ghost bit fits in with the movie brilliantly. I would give this movie a rating of 9.9 It is a family movie and I wish there was more like it. The comments I read about this movie being "a Urinal" I could not believe. The person that wrote the comments on this movie must have been watching something else. I would put this movie amongst the "Disney Classics" It is a BRILLIANT MOVIE.
