As America's foremost TV dad, Heathcliffe Huxtable on The Cosby Show, Cosby is warm, wise and lovable. As Elliott Hopper, the overworked, unattentive dad in Ghost Dad, Cosby is, on the large screen, a mere shadow of his television presence.
I suppose you can't blame the star of one of TV's most popular series for attempting to conquer the movies -- yet again. What's perplexing is that Cosby keeps choosing vehicles that seem designed to sabotage the conquest.
Just depressing and incompetently assembled, reaching for a madcap mood of paranormal activity that results in one long headache. I now see why Poitier never directed again and Cosby refused another leading role in a feature film.
The movie doesn't exhibit the slightest attempt to be consistent, logical or sensible in anything, and there are scenes so pointless and unmotivated that attentive audiences will ask what they're doing in the movie.
