Spoiler Free Review of We Have A Ghost (2023) Movie
In this film, the said Ghost is still stuck in the past, in the 1970s world. Until one day, he gets discovered by the tech-savvy young kids of the 21st century. This supernatural horror adventure comedy may make you smile when you encounter the latest buzzwords like social media platforms and internet sensations. Even government agencies in the 21st century get involved in this funny story about a bald ghost from the past.
What we disliked about it
We think that its writers should have tightened the scripts and added more comedic scenes in it. As they had a great pool of available comedic talent flair among its star casts. This movie could have been much better, as we believe it missed a great opportunity with its talented actors, such as David Harbour (Ernest), Anthony Mackie (Frank), and Jennifer Coolidge (in a guest appearance). The story had lots of potential, but its team could not utilize its central premises properly.
What we liked about it
The heart-wrenching ending of the movie broke our hearts. On the other hand, its scene at the end provided a satisfying ending to the Ghost. And we loved that aspect of the film. Still, it is an enjoyable watch as long as you can overlook a few things here and there. And we repeat, despite the shortcomings mentioned (and not mentioned) above, we believe, this is a good family movie. It tugs at your heartstrings many times.
One can relish the movie, while it lasts. We must honestly state that despite all its goofs-ups, this light-hearted horror comedy made us laugh and enjoy it with family members.
