Headlined by Melanie Lynskey and co-written and directed by Justin Long, this had the potential to be a cute little quirky Indie flick (about a woman haunted by the ghost of the old mansion she’s hired to babysit), but it instead dissolved into pseudo-raunchy silliness early on and could never quite recover. Sure there are some decent bits hidden along the way, but more often than not it sputters along with a mixed-bag assortment of both juvenile and puerile humor with a wholly unnecessary love story tacked on as an afterthought.

2/5 stars
