MILDLY ENTERTAINING.
23 September 2002 | by mack3175See all my reviews

This movie was not great, but okay. The special effects seem to do alright. But Bronson Pinchot as the psychic Bobby, does a serious amount of over acting thats not even funny. The way he does it, he looks like he did over a dozen takes. And Stuart Pankin's character Preston who is Bobby's care taker, is such an idiot, you were waiting for somebody to smack him upside his head. Seems it is John Larroquette is the only one who is funny as the uptight and cynical detective Wills. His funny performance saves the movie from extermination. Bess Armstrong seems to hold her own, has the nun who is helping them on the case. An alright film.
