We Have A Ghost (2023) Movie:- synopsis

We Have A Ghost (2023) Movie:- brief review

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.

They should have tightened the scripts and added more comedic scenes involving the available comedic talent flair among its star casts. This movie could have been much better, as I 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 utilize it properly.

The heart-wrenching ending of the movie broke my (in fact our team member) hearts. It provided a satisfying ending to the Ghost.

Still, it is an enjoyable watch as long as you can overlook a few things here and there. And I repeat, despite the shortcomings mentioned (and not mentioned) above, I believe, this is a good family movie that you can relish, while it lasts. I must honestly state that despite all its goofs-ups, this light-hearted horror comedy made us laugh and enjoy it with family members.

Rotten Tomatoes / Critics ConsensusThis film has a fun concept and a talented cast; unfortunately, this spookily uneven ’80s pastiche also has very little idea of what to do with them.
Rotten Tomatoes / Audience SaysIt suffers from some clunky writing, but this film is a fun lightweight supernatural comedy that might even make you cry.
