This is a film about a young boy whose parents are separated and he tries to find happiness. He wanders off at a school nature trip and ends up in a haunted mansion where he is saved by ghost Jian Ren. The ghost becomes his friend, since the kids at school don't like him because he is rich. His cowboy hat wearing father is too busy making money while his mother is a fashion designer, also very busy. The ghost helps the kid try to get his parents back together, the thing which would make him truly happy. This film would be for kids except for a few scary moments. The plot is universal, the poor little rich kid with a supposedly imaginary friend. There are some decent special effects, especially for the time, in this film. The best character is the mom, played by Josephine Siu, who looks stylish, sexy and yet has a heart. The film is not great, but its the kind of film you saw when you were younger and not so critical of every little detail in a film and then watched it twenty years later and remember the story. Entertaining but not essential, its okay.
