Storyline

Convicted embezzler Witt Hampton escapes from prison and while hiding out in an isolated country barn is discovered by young Cassy and her brother Jack. After convincing them he's a friendly ghost that only they can see, the three new friends embark on one imaginative adventure after another until, inspired by their innocent spirits, Witt vows to redeem his crimes. But, a by-the-book sheriff-who has sworn to personally put Hampton back behind bars-is closing in, and Witt may never get the chance to finally set things right.

Sentimental and silly
27 May 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I Didn't mind that this is really an uncredited rehash of Whistle Down the Wind,relocated to America,colourised and sentimentalised beyond belief.The movies today lack the taste for emotional honesty,at least within the mainstream and this kind of thing is acceptable to all but purists.What did irritate me was the stupidity of the convict hiding out in the barn .He goes out of his way to be visible rather than hide-eating in the local diner where he gets embroiled in a fight,doing surreptitious house repairs ,going fishing etc.Presumably the local lawman as played by John Savage was blind as well as borderline psycho! Bland and anodyne I can just about put up with but stupid -No I draw the line there. Decent performance by the wonderous Diane Ladd as Aunt Helen and John Savage is always watchable even in sentimental slop
