These family ties prove that boys DO cry (at atrocious films)
3 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Successful shrink, Jon Porter (Michael Gross of Family Ties and Tremors fame) is unexpectedly called back to his childhood home after his mother dies of mysterious causes with the intentions of paying his respects, selling the house and getting the hell out of dodge with his daughter (Hillary Swank who I'm sure doesn't keep this film on her resumé) but an assortment of ghostly teenagers have different plans.

So much squandered talent between Swank, Gross, and the fat kid from The Sandlot trapped in an awful script that makes the first film (of which this only shares a title and tenacious source material with) look like fillet mignonette to this ones week-old hamburger that someone fished out of a particularly pungent dumpster. Bad acting, horrible special effects, and just all-around godawful. Skip it.

My Grade: D-

Eye Candy: Leslie Danon and Jennifer Aspen get briefly topless
