Boo To 'Boo!' Except To See Eddie & Evelyn Again
3 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the few episodes that offered very little. It's another ghost story and, frankly, Spielberg is overdoing it in that department. I prefer his other shows here, the straight drama or comedies. These are getting old. Speaking of old, that's what we have here: two old "ghosts" who have lived happily in this house and are not happy when the nice family moves. The new owner is a slimy porno movie guy and his ditsy girlfriend, who stars in the cheap films.

The ghosts do what they can do get rid of their unwanted guests, which sounds entertaining, and should have been....but wasn't. I did enjoy a few of the remarks, like the one Evelyn Keyes makes when she says, "These people are too stupid to be frightened." The porn dude's hairpiece wasn't bad, either. Why "rug" jokes usually work, I don't know, but they do.

It was good to see veteran actors Keyes and Eddie Bracken again. Evelyn is 91 years old and still going strong. Her birthday and mine are the same! Eddie passed away in 2002. They were both born in the mid 1910s.
