Quotes

Madame Leota: What are you doing?
Jim: Hey, you leave me alone. Just get out of here and leave me alone.
Madame Leota: Oh, I see. You're just going to sit there, feeling sorry for yourself.
Jim: Tell me why not. This whole thing was my fault. We should've never been here in the first place. Supposed to be at the lake. We'd be sitting by a warm fire right now. And I made us come here. And now it's too late.
Madame Leota: No. It's never too late.
Jim: Hey, look, I tried to get in there, and I can't, all right? I tried! I failed!
Madame Leota: You try. You fail. You ...

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 »

Disney's Latest Ghost Story
16 January 2005 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

"The Haunted Mansion" is the latest movie to be based upon an attraction at the Disney theme parks. It stars Eddie Murphy as Jim Evers, a workaholic real estate agent who finds himself and his family trapped in a mansion infested with ghosts. The movie doesn't rank as well as "Pirates of the Caribbean." The story isn't all that it should be. But the movie does have its good points. The art direction is beautiful, and there are plenty of visual gems. The ghosts seen in the graveyard are probably the best part of the movie. Terence Stamp puts in a suitably creepy performance as Ramsley, the butler, and Jennifer Tilly is kooky as Madame Leota. "The Haunted Mansion" is no "Pirates of the Caribbean," but it is still worth a look.
