Movie Reviews

Ghost Dad is funny!
Anne Littlepage | Richmond, Va United States | 12/31/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ghost Dad stars Bill Cosby as a workaholic father who is never at home and leaves all of his reponsibilities to his oldest daughter. His oldest daughter begins to resent him when he forgets her birthday. That day also changes Bill's character life forever when a crazed taxi driver picks him up and runs off the bridge causing him to become a ghost. Bill is forced to be at the mercy of his children who help him darken his office at work, so he can be seen. As the movie progresses, Bill's character becomes closer to his children and learns that he needs to make more time for them. This movie has a lot of Bill Cosby's humor, which is really funny at times. One of the funniest scenes is with Bill and a guy in England who calls himself "Ed-ith", instead of "E-dith." Definitely see this movie if you like Bill Cosby."
Complete and Utter Nonsense

"I must say that I don't understand the reviews giving this movie 4 or 5 stars. Its almost as if they're talking about a different movie.

I am a big Bill Cosby fan, but there is almost nothing about this movie that is worth watching. The premise itself is hard enough to believe, what makes it worse is when the rules of how Cosby's non-corporeal self communicates and interacts with the real world seem to change at the writer's whim. There is absolutely no logic governing how this happens. Why, for example, can he walk through walls but is able to pick up a scotch bottle ? How is it possible for him to talk on the telephone ? For that matter how is it possible for anyone except his children to hear him when he talks ? There are no answers to these questions, because its obvious the writers were just making it up as they went along.

Bill Cosby is a great television actor but his movie career leaves much to be desired (Leonard Part 6 anyone ?), this movie is one example why."
Love the movie...Some problems with the DVD

"First I will start by saying that I love this movie. I was excited to get it on DVD. The thing that left me perplexed was how scenes were deleted from the DVD. I was disappointed by that. They added a few scenes, but I felt the gap when a part I knew well was skipped. I'm not sure what I feel about that."
