Trivia

When the two new homeowners start singing: "Happy Anniversary!" and Jim reacts very annoyed, it's a tongue-in-cheek joke about a commercial that aired on the radio for the Disneyland theme park anniversary, sung the exact same way by a child. The commercial was reacted to badly by listeners because it was so obnoxious and eventually pulled. See more »

Goofs

When Jim and his daughter are trying to get out of the mausoleum you can see that from the inside the door that light is showing through the cracks before Michael opens the door. See more »

Quotes

[while looking at a magazine in Michael's room]
Jim: Hey, this is my Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. What are you doing with it?
Michael: [shrugs] I don't know.
Jim: [sarcastically] Oh, yeah, sure.

Crazy Credits

Look for a "special" message from Madame Leota at the end of the credit roll. It sounds deadly familiar to the ending of the Disneyland ride. See more »

Not for lovers of the thirty-five year-old Disney attraction
5 September 2004 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Eddie Murphy? What genius thought up this lame script? Sure, they toss in a dozen homages to the original ride, but Disney flubbed a golden opportunity to create a classic film. Don't take one of the most-beloved rides from Disneyland/World, and come up with a sub-par comedy, with smart-mouthed kids, and a jabbering Eddie Murphy.

Tech credits are great, though.

Don't be fooled by the DVD's claim of a "Virtual Ride of The Haunted Mansion." I was expecting a recap of the actual park attraction, but was instead treated to a tour of the movie set.

Also, Disney....why not just AVOID crude jokes and profanity in this type of family film? The scares alone garner the rating you desire. Don't dumb this down when it's not necessary. Have you not learned ANYTHING since "Watcher in the Woods"? (And THAT was definitely creepier.)
