Storyline

Further complications beset the life of young, aspiring magician Max when he finds only he can see and hear the ghosts that have come to reside in his family's relatively new home (former home of the ghosts). Like Max, two of the ghosts are children, who also need a living person to help them defeat an evil apparition named Phears aiming to capture them and release mean spirits back into the world on Halloween.

Goofs

When young ghost Tara runs in front of Colin, the human older brother, while Colin and his dad are watching TV, Tara hits the bowl of popcorn on the coffee table and the bowl visibly moves. Earlier the film had established that ghosts would pass through anything solid unless they concentrated on that object to be moved. (In this case, Tara was not concentrating on the bowl.) Furthermore, the bowl had been in Colin's lap a moment before when it suddenly appeared on the coffee table. Immediately after Tara knocked the bowl aside, the bowl appeared back in Colin's lap in the next shot. See more »

wow...
12 October 2008 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I usually look forward every couple of months to the new DCOM movie, but they are really starting to go down hill. They built an entire movie around an unknown little boy who didn't even have the "usual" cuteness factor that Disney likes to exploit. The entire supporting cast were stars from other shows except this little boy and the girl who has a supporting role. The one positive in the movie was Madison Pettis. She was cute and it was amazing to see how much she has grown up in a few short years. Other than that, the characters were stereotypical and one dimensional. I wonder what would happen if the writers visited a few high schools and did research before creating their next movie?
