      Jay Weissberg Variety Every bit as silly as its title would suggest, Poltergay offers sporadic laughs and plenty of groans. May 8, 2007 Full Review Simon Foster Poltergay manages to find a winning, fun-loving balance that should satisfy open-minded straight viewers and the gay audience in equal measure. Aug 9, 2010 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews consequently can't help but wonder if something's gotten lost in the translation. Rated: 2/4 Apr 6, 2008 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall One of those sniggering French farces that implies a lot of naughtiness but doesn't deliver much. On the other hand, it is rather a lot of fun. Rated: 3/5 Oct 11, 2007 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Wastes a potentially brilliant premise for a cult classic with pedestrian execution, lame jokes and sequins instead of character development.

      Audience Member It was a fun, festive and campy movie that provided lots of laughter and giggles from those of us who enjoyed it! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Extremely charming, it has found its own way. The end is very lovely indeed. Very different to what I've seen before and I love it! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member thought this would be terrible but infact its quite sweet. Got funnier once the ghosts began to help MArc Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member comédie anecdotique mais sympathique Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Emma and Marc, two young lovers, move into a house which has been uninhabited for thirty years. What they don't know is that in 1979, in a cave under the house, there was a gay disco, which burned down when a foam machine short-circuited, and five bodies were never found. Today, the house is haunted by five gay ghosts. However, only Marc is able to see them, and his visions drive Emma away. The ghosts, touched by Marc's problems, do everything in their power to help him get his girl back. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member For a ridiculous, high-concept comedy... this still isn't good enough. <i>Poltergay</i> has good intentions, but I don't appreciate the way <b>all five</b> gay (ghost) characters are camp, mincing fairies, who all love interior decorating, makeovers and ironing. What a demonstration of diversity! This would be bad enough, but the comedy is rarely funny, the story makes light of serious issues and the film doesn't even have internal logic and there are a couple of giant plot holes. It's quite sweet in parts and Clovis Comillac is a decent lead (though none of the other actors make an impression), and the overall message is a positive one... but it doesn't succeed as a comedy, or a drama, and certainly not a horror, and the gimmick gets tiring after 20 minutes.
