Roxy Hunter & The Mystery of the Moody Ghost is a 93 minute full length movie as originally broadcast on Nickelodeon. All of the main actors are well above average for a kids cable TV show. It's a shame that only a few of these movies were made, as the cast works very well together.
After moving into an old house in the country, nine year old Roxy gets involved in a spooky mystery. Along with her super smart best friend Max, Roxy searches for clues to save their new home and discover who is behind the spooky happenings. Is it the Moody Ghost or something else???
My six year old loves the Roxy Hunter movies, but be aware that Roxy is not an ideal role model for young girls. She mouths off to her mother, and other adults. She breaks all kinds of rules along the way, but the movie is fun if parents will watch it with their kids and talk about what is going on. After all, it is supposed to be a fun and suspenseful movie... not a church sermon.

What a brat!

"I suppose Roxy is meant to be sassy and precocious, but she just comes off as being bratty and in need of a lot of time out in her room. She repeatedly mouths off to adults, breaks laws, and never obeys any rules her mother does try to set. She's rude and inconsiderate to her family members. Not at all a good role model.
The movie is watchable. The actress playing Roxy is cute as a button. Some of the sets are very good. The mansion Roxy lives in is fascinating, although you do have to wonder how her mother can afford it on a bank teller's salary. There is also a gorgeous library, which is unfortunately run by a very stereotypical nerdy librarian. A lot of the characters are one dimensional stereotypes--the crabby bank lady, for instance. Small town life is depicted like something out of the 1950s. Neither the bank or the library has computers.
The plot is rather thin and doesn't really add up. Roxy's great detective skills are just coincidences and wild guesses that always just happen to be right.
I'd pass on this one. It isn't wretched, but with Roxy's behavior problems, why bother with a so-so plot."
Sort of fun for young girls

"First off, this is a movie for young tween-age girls. A MOVIE. If you are frightened that your child will have a personality over-haul from watching a 90 minute fictional movie, then perhaps you had best skip it.
That being said, my 8.5 yo daughter liked the movie, liked the plot, and liked that the lead character showed independence and spirit. She questioned things, was intelligent, and yes, had a bit of an attitude. What girl does not? It was a nice movie, moved quickly, no real scarey things,and a nice ending. Very family appropriate!"
Love the show:)

"My 3yr old son and I love Roxy Hunter. The story is charming, funny, and has just the right ammount of suspence for young viewers! It is a welcome break from all the cartoons my son watches!"
