"The Sixth Sense" meets "The Breakfast Club" when a teacher who sees dead people applies for work at a high school haunted by five student poltergeists who died during detention. All his life Modesto has seen dead people walking around like living people and has long accepted the assessment of others that he has a mental problem. Principal Tina Escalonilla turns that around when Modesto describes a detail (known to her) about the school spirits that no others have been able to reveal. With her school poised to be closed due to unrelenting paranormal high jinx, she begs Modesto to stay and see what he can do to ease these spirits into the next life before Founder's Day.Written by
Simple comedy yet done excellent if you like different than standard American comedies. Excellent script, wonderful music, clichés played with self-irony, fast pace, keeps you engaged and involved gladly. Good fun, leaves you with a smile and good feeling inside. No development of characters or such. Instead - smart, simple and fun. Has the looks of a 1980's movies and spirit. Do not expect more - no drama, no horror, no thriller either. Does not teach you or address morality or hidden messages. Don't know what else to say to complete the necessary 10 lines for a review. Really simple and fun. If you into such kind of movies - Enjoy! :)
