At this point, you can't really be mad at Eddie for making kid movies seeing as his adult career done dried up long ago (did YOU see "I Spy," "Pluto Nash" or "Showtime?").

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

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

The point of Haunted Mansion is for audiences to sit back and enjoy the ride, which is easy to do thanks to an engaging story, the striking, Gothic-inspired set by Oscar-winner John Myhre and some delightful special effects.

It's perfectly palatable family fare for a long weekend when it's hard to find movies at the neighborhood 'plex that will please everyone.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's notoriously difficult to balance lighthearted humor with the spookiness a good ghost story requires, but director Rob Minkoff is surprisingly successful, delivering a satisfying mix of laughs and mild scares aimed at a young audience.

You don't go to a movie like this for the sparkling repartee; you go to ride the ride one more time, and director Rob Minkoff delivers with a slew of sight gags and character cameos that will keep faith with the fans.

More creepy than scary, but it's lots of fun.

It's neither as clever nor as campy as the attraction it's based on, but it's a suitable representation of its, er, spirit.

Swirling apparitions, a wonderful Southern gothic atmosphere and a thwarted love story make this a fine companion piece to the Walt Disney theme-park attraction.

Best of all is Parker, the perfect melancholy romantic hero, brooding and dark, yet touching and sentimental.

When a Disney ride becomes a movie, there's not much hope that things will turn out as well as they do in this tame horror comedy.
