Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[I]t's dreadful."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"More Disneyland ride than movie, short on plot and long on dazzling visuals for the kiddies."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"Go on the Disney ride instead. It's over sooner."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Beautiful production design and bags of promise give way to disappointment in this family comedy."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
"Eddie Murphy, fresh from a string of wearyingly bad performances in really horrible features, pulls The Haunted Mansion down around him with record-breaking speed"
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"Rob Minkoff has directed a movie that's nearly laughless and nowhere near as frightening as what's happened to Eddie Murphy's career."
‑ Brian Parks, Village Voice
"The point of Haunted Mansion is for audiences to sit back and enjoy the ride, which is easy to do thanks to an engaging story, the striking, Gothic-inspired set by Oscar-winner John Myhre and some delightful special effects."
‑ Jen Chaney, Washington Post
"When a Disney ride becomes a movie, there's not much hope that things will turn out as well as they do in this tame horror comedy."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"A thunderstorm of mysterious origin traps the old mansion."
‑ Vince Koehler, Entertainment Spectrum
"You wonder why you're willing to wait an hour-and-a-half to go on it for the umpteenth time."
‑ Michael Szymanski,
"A pleasant and atmospheric family romp, offering enough mildly chilling thrills to keep everyone entertained during its brief running time."
‑ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"It's perfectly palatable family fare for a long weekend when it's hard to find movies at the neighborhood 'plex that will please everyone."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Great visuals, few scares and laughs. But it IS clean family entertainment."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Regardless of all the ghosts, or maybe because of them, The Haunted Mansion is one lifeless, spiritless affair."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Uma comédia de horror que não assusta nem faz rir."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
