Goofs

After the family get caught in the rain, they run up the steps to the front door and you can see the effects of the rain which include their wet clothes and Sara's frizzy, uncurled hair. Later, when they go into the house a few minutes later, her hair is again curled and their clothes are dry. See more »

Quotes

[Emma and Ezra has discovered the children in the attic]
Emma: Are you kids hungry? Does anybody want a cookie?
Ezra: Cookies? Don't offer them cookies. They're trespassers. Trespassers don't get cookies. This is none of their concern.
Emma: [angrily] It is their concern. They're involved.

Look for a "special" message from Madame Leota at the end of the credit roll. It sounds deadly familiar to the ending of the Disneyland ride. See more »

Not as bad as many lead you to believe.
17 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was a very poorly reviewed film, and it didn't deserve such flack. For me, it was a dumb, entertaining movie with some heart. For others, it was a terrible job of emulating the classic Disney ride and just another stupid Eddie Murphy comedy vehicle. Though I'd rather go on the ride as opposed to watching this, it still has it's charm. This movie is about a Realtor (Murphy) and his family traveling to a haunted mansion for a business deal. While in the house they learn some strange things and end up traveling through various rooms found in the ride (the bride, the ballroom, Madame Leota, the graveyard with the singing busts). In the end, this is a fun movie for kids, and amusing for adults, with fun references, and a fun performance by Murphy and the kids.

My rating: ** 1/2 out of ****. 85 mins. PG for mild language, violence
