I'll partly blame it on the fact that I didn't see this until I was an adult; but the songs in this are terrible and acting by the boy is worse. Luckily enough of the Muppet humor is still present for this to be deemed slightly entertaining but a disappointment after the lovely Muppet Christmas Carol

Peter Jackson creates a strange ode to cheesy ghost flicks starring The Michael J Fox in, strangely, his last live-action movie role.

A dialogue-heavy tale that frustrates as much is it curates. None of the characters are entirely likable, which makes it a little more realistic, I suppose.

Behind-the-scenes look at what happened after Carson retired from late-night. The performances, aside from Kathy Bates, were awkward. It was very made-for-TV; but kept interest.

2 interesting days in the valley, true, but they never amount to much as the climax arrives too soon. I felt like only half the story was told by the time we got to the end.

Jeffrey Wright is fantastic in his debut lead. This is a film that wants to be extra artistic but gets in the way of itself with too many conventional ways.
