      Paulina G Great 80's movie. Don't know why it doesn't have a better audience score. Remake of this movie will be phenomenal. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Michell B I have loved this movie since I 1st saw it on vhs lol. Great cast, beautiful location. It's set in Ireland, filmed at Dromore castle. If you love 80's cheesy comedy flicks, like Big Trouble in Little China, Police Academy etc……you'll love it too. Plus it's got the great Peter O'Toole, Steve Gutenberg, Jennifer Tilly & at the time a young & unknown Liam Neeson. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review Odessa D This movie is fantastic! I love to watch it every year in October. It's funny and charming, and I love seeing many of the actors in their early years. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/17/23 Full Review Robert A Man critics never give credit to camp or melodramas. It is a good movie. It never tries to be anything more than a cheap '80s comedy. You get what you pay for it. It delivers as expected. It is a good movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/09/23 Full Review Colin E A few decent jokes and certainly a unique plot line. But rough at times as it stumbles through but still watchable. As other note, good Halloween movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/13/23 Full Review Daniel B Liam Neeson's finest work, as good now as it was in 1988. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 1/5 Dec 24, 2002 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com '...a cast like this is never boring, with the romance working better than the broad comic highlights...' Rated: 3/5 Jan 9, 2024 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Although flawed with a hopelessly off-the-wall story and visual jokes that fall flat, there are still enough unique elements to warrant a viewing for the curious. Rated: 4/10 Sep 6, 2020 Full Review Michael Arbeiter Nerdist High Spirits is cheesy, slapdash, and not exactly up to snuff to today's standards of gender politics, but Halloween-appropriate nonetheless. Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Cathy Burke United Press International It is a cast perfectly blended to this story of human foibles and eternal love. And best of all, each actor, whether their part is large or small, seems to genuinely enjoy the high-jinks they are helping create. Dec 9, 2017 Full Review J.C. Maçek III PopMatters High Spirits is a good time but the film is far from Jordan's best, and isn't quite what one would call "memorable", even with the fun effects and witty quips from O'Toole. Rated: 4/10 Apr 13, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews
