The latest Disney-fueled ‘Let’s turn this ride into a movie’ effort stars Lakeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, and Rosario Dawson as a team working to rid a rickety New Orleans mansion of its (not terribly terrible) ghosts. Along with the handful of nifty references to the ride itself, there’s a decent amount of stuff to enjoy here, but in the end, the uneven script never gives us anything either as funny or as spooky as it could have. Screenwriter Katie Dippold (2016’s ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot) can’t seem to avoid the obvious one-liners whenever possible, which makes this a good option for the PG-13 crowd but may leave many adults feeling more tricked than treated.

3/5 stars
