More geared toward kids than most of their movies. Their best is The Time of Their Lives, where the comedic timing is impeccable.
Hallaurous comedy with great jokes and great actors.
I love this movie I've seen it hundreds of times and still watch it
First Abbott and Costello Movie I Ever Saw, and it's still great!
Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are a pair of gas station attendants who accidentally find themselves the last people with a notorious gangster when he is killed in a shoot-out with the police and, surprisingly, become the beneficiaries of his will. They inherit a seemingly haunted roadside tavern. Trapped there with several other people (including comedienne Joan Davis) they find trouble and eventually treasure. This story is book-ended by scenes in a nightclub with The Andrews Sisters (who also appeared in Abbott and Costello's first film) and bandleader Ted Lewis. These scenes seem tacked on to add a variety element to the picture, not all that uncommon during the forties. Bud and Lou are in fine form, hilariously and ridiculously bumbling through every scene and situation. The plot is just an excuse for their routines and antics. But this isn't Bergman and it's all easily forgotten a few hours later.
Pure fun from start to finish. In the movie the legendary comedy team cemented their reputation as one of the greatest comedy duos of all time. The late Lou Costello was excellent. I don't think I need to say more, but his excellent dialogue and hysterical scared moments make this movie a sheer delight. Bud Abbott is the perfect straight man for Lou. They were made for each other. All of the credit does not to just to them. They are helped by an extremely talented supporting cast who deliver their fair share of laughs as well. An excellent movie which could very well be the best the comic legends ever made. Make time to see it if you have not already.
Hold that Ghost isn't particularly scary, nor does it make a lot of sense, but it's still endearing. Abbott and Costello are a fantastic comedy duo with impeccable timing, even if the humor is a bit dated now. However, I do think that Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein is a better Halloween movie than this one.
A very funny Abbott & Costello movie! Need to see the beginning.
first feature the boyz made at Universal but third released behind the 2 svc comedies
This was one of Abbott & Costello's biggest hits, a funny variation on the 'old dark house' theme; The Andrews Sisters sing "Aurora."
