Every bit as silly as its title would suggest, Poltergay offers sporadic laughs and plenty of groans.
Poltergay manages to find a winning, fun-loving balance that should satisfy open-minded straight viewers and the gay audience in equal measure.
...one consequently can't help but wonder if something's gotten lost in the translation.
One of those sniggering French farces that implies a lot of naughtiness but doesn't deliver much. On the other hand, it is rather a lot of fun.
Wastes a potentially brilliant premise for a cult classic with pedestrian execution, lame jokes and sequins instead of character development.
For a ridiculous, high-concept comedy... this still isn't good enough. Poltergay has good intentions, but I don't appreciate the way all five gay (ghost) characters are camp, mincing fairies, who all love interior decorating, makeovers and ironing. What a demonstration of diversity! This would be bad enough, but the comedy is rarely funny, the story makes light of serious issues and the film doesn't even have internal logic and there are a couple of giant plot holes. It's quite sweet in parts and Clovis Comillac is a decent lead (though none of the other actors make an impression), and the overall message is a positive one... but it doesn't succeed as a comedy, or a drama, and certainly not a horror, and the gimmick gets tiring after 20 minutes.
