The Haunted Mansion

Jays Rating:

The latest Disney movie based on their theme park rides is the family comedy The Haunted Mansion. Eddie Murphy is a real estate agent who takes his family to a mansion he is going to sell on their way out of town on a family vacation. When they arrive at the mansion (of course it’s haunted) it’s raining and the bridges are washed out and they have to spend the night. This film is really not very funny. The kids will probably like the special affects (the ghosts) but it’s probably to frightening for kids under 5 years of age. The story is corny and doesn’t make sense. For example they talk about a curse. What was the curse? I didn’t hear anything cursed. In fact the only cursing I heard was from parents who had to sit through this movie with their children. The kids were entertained and I’m going to give this movie a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA
