What separates this original pic from the usual Halloween fare is that it captures the spirit of a holiday designed for kids. It's sweet and fun, but too much could definitely give you a stomach ache.

It's watchable, though the action is packed with bits and pieces from genre milestones such as Bewitched and Tim Burton's The Nightmare before Christmas, so it feels rather familiar.

Debbie Reynolds of course is wonderful.

Of course it has a TV movie feel, but it's cute, light, and great background noise for Halloween activities or parties.

I saw this TV-movie on the Disney channel when it first came on. It was fun, and I liked it, but it's not the best TV movie I've seen.
