Ghost Dad is designed to be a comedy. Myself, I thought it was sad. He almost dies in an elevator accident, then he finds himself suspended in mid air over a bridge of water, hanging on by his car door. The man has kids! He's the only provider for them. Who is going to look after them when he becomes...ghost dad? Ghost Dad has a few funny moments, but there's something here in the mix that doesn't work. At first, the kids think its funny when they can see him in the dark, but not in the light, so they keep turning the lights on and off, and he keeps disappearing and reappearing. When the kids finally accept him as ghost dad, the movie completely falls apart. I mean, literally. The film does not know where to go from there, and instead, its just a parade of filler. Watch as he comically chokes the boyfriend through the phone when he calls her a name that rhymes with "Witch". It tries to play off as a family comedy, but it just doesn't have any story or material to go by once he dies. There lies the problem. As a comedy, as I said, it has a few laughs. Bill Cosby is great as ghost dad, the kids are likable...its just too bad the movie isn't likable. But watchable. I'm giving Ghost Dad 5 out of 10 stars. Anything but haunting here.
