Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

An overstuffed and under-imagined attempt to turn a six-minute ride into a 90 minute picture.

With The Haunted Mansion, Eddie Murphy continues in a long line of family film stinkers.

...maladroit dans sa tentative d'allier rires et frissons, insatisfaisant sur tous les plans...

Rob Minkoff has directed a movie that's nearly laughless and nowhere near as frightening as what's happened to Eddie Murphy's career.

Feels like something that was churned out through a machine; Disney Live-Action Cheese By Committee.

If the creative folk at Disney are going to keep using the theme parks as an idea pool for films, they should stick to the "Pirates" mold and break the "Haunted Mansion" one.

Another Disney ride-turned-movie looks great ... and goes nowhere.

December 1, 2003

Following the plot of the ride, as well as littering the screen with beautiful visual homages big and small, the film has less wiggle room to really come alive on its own.

There's disappointingly little in its 99 minutes that's better than what the ride has been doing for years in 10.

Eddie Murphy does a sterile job as the film's star, but it is Jennifer Tilly who shines in this otherwise flat film.

The only thing scary about this film is the sound of Walt turning over in his grave.

When the three hitchhiking ghosts appear, you'll be more than ready to join them in getting the heck out of Dodge.

The Haunted Mansion was made in the spirit of giving everyone in the family something to enjoy together. It's successful at that level.

Learn from the Evers family: The Haunted Mansion is not worth the detour.

...a lame and transparent pseudo-amusing scarefest...has all the whimsy and cheeky movement of an overcrowded parking lot at Disneyland...a generic goose bump ride

This one just makes you wonder: Does all of Hollywood operate out of one computer room?

For those of you in the flyover states who've never been able to afford a trip to the Disney parks, or...simply don't want to pay exorbitant admission prices.

A movie that, while consistently amusing, plays like a hackneyed effort to stretch a few minutes of ride into a coherent, hour-and- a-half story.

A pleasant and atmospheric family romp, offering enough mildly chilling thrills to keep everyone entertained during its brief running time.

More Disneyland ride than movie, short on plot and long on dazzling visuals for the kiddies.
