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

In Max' magic act fantasy, he covers Traci with a sheet. The top of the sheet is rounded due to the shape of her head, but when the camera changes, her covered "head" is pointy due to the invisible strings holding up the sheet with Traci no longer under it. See more »

Quotes

Phears: We will meet again; and, if you tell anyone that you've seen me, my cape-dwelling friends and I will haunt them and make their lives unlivable. Understand? Tell no one - especially your parents. I know where you live, Max. When was the last time you saw your parents grovel for mercy?
Max Doyle: At my Cousin Skeeter's piano recital?
Phears: What?

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?
