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.

Great visuals, few scares and laughs. But it IS clean family entertainment.

Beautiful production design and bags of promise give way to disappointment in this family comedy.

Regardless of all the ghosts, or maybe because of them, The Haunted Mansion is one lifeless, spiritless affair.

Eddie Murphy, fresh from a string of wearyingly bad performances in really horrible features, pulls The Haunted Mansion down around him with record-breaking speed

You wonder why you're willing to wait an hour-and-a-half to go on it for the umpteenth time.

Uma comédia de horror que não assusta nem faz rir.

Comic thrillers are always risky, but this one lacks even a hint of badly needed black humour.

Despite a talented cast of actors, nothing really stands out in this movie based on a theme park ride.

... essentially a soulless collection of episodic gags... only serves to hammer a few more nails into [Eddie Murphy's] career's coffin.

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?").

uses the ride's familiar visuals as a leaping-off point for the horror-comedy, which is at times delightfully silly and at other times depressingly thin

Manages to make even such surefire audience grabbers as a zombie attack exceedingly dull.

To paraphrase one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite films ("Little Big Man"): Sometimes the Magic Kingdom works, and sometimes it doesn't.

It's ironic that in 2003 we find Murphy playing a role that, for all intents and purposes, might have been done by Mantan Moreland 60 years ago -- only Mantan was funnier.
