Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Unctuous, flat and phony, a farce that has the pace of a Broadway bus at rush hour.
Rotten: Most of Ghost Dad is a dim-witted embarrassment.
Rotten: I suppose you can't blame the star of one of TV's most popular series for attempting to conquer the movies -- yet again. What's perplexing is that Cosby keeps choosing vehicles that seem designed to sabotage the conquest.
Rotten: Poitier's rhythms are so sluggish that the film's finale seems to have been optically speeded up in a last-ditch attempt to give the picture some dash and energy.
