The owner of an Irish castle decides to attract visitors by falsely claiming that the building is haunted, only to have a pair of real ancestral spirits start causing trouble in this uneven attempt at fantasy-comedy. The story centers on Jack and Sharon (played by Steve Guttenberg and Beverly D'Angelo), naive American tourists who are initially unimpressed by the owner's attempts at fraud but become more interested in the real ghosts, Mary and Martin (played by Daryl Hannah and Liam Neeson).

Flat and sitcom-y; Hannah's costume looks like a plastic trash bag
I saw this movie when I was lonely and it helped somewhat.
Ghastly ghost story.
What was Neil Jordan thinking?
Not Neil Jordan at his best
