Slight but Fun...
12 September 2003 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

A slight but fun film about a young girl who dies in a car crash on her way to the high school prom, only to come back some thirty years later in the form of a ghost to help settle a few things with the help of a teenager living in her old house. Stupid, slight and fun to watch. Recycled premise and jokes, very basic, but fun.

3/5 stars -
