After Kevin finds a ghost named Ernest haunting his new home, he becomes an overnight social media sensation. But when Kevin and Ernest go rogue to investigate the mystery of the latter's past, they become targets of the CIA.
Guess, the subject of the review should have been sufficient but these word's limit literally kills the speech. David Harbour, the HELL BOY, coming in a very light, soft, good family watch movie over the Netflix. It is not something extra ordinary, it is not something very different, you can easily guess the ending, but still worth your time. Reviewers calling it like another Casper movie, perhaps in a way true, just that no white tailed ghosts in this one.
You will enjoy it surely watching, it will not bore you, though from a very critical point, there are many flaws that could have been covered, but leave that aside, just enjoy.

This movie was fun, I recommend it
What a surprisingly funny, solid movie. Wasn't expecting much, to be sure, but it actually had a great plot and mystery. Plus, all of the actors were great, with one exception.
I loved the mom and dad, although Mackie's treatment of his son was kind of weird because he hated his son but didn't seem to mind the other son. There weren't a lot of reasons for that, at least that the movie explained.
But overall, it was fun and funny and extremely interesting, too. David Harbor was phenomenal as the ghost. Tough role and he just crushed it.
The notable exception is Tig Natoro, who presents as so smug and unwieldy in everything, including this. Her scenes were painful, took me out of the movie every time.
Otherwise, this is a Netflix winner and it gets 8 stars because 1 star comes off for Tig.

Really fun 80s throwback
It's overly long and goes to some very random places narratively but We Have a Ghost is still a really fun 80s Amblin throwback that has plenty of charming moments and humour that hits more than it misses. It's definitely Christopher Landon's weakest film in a while but thankfully still isn't bad by any means.
The cast are all good in their undemanding roles that require them to go through the usual stereotypes and motions and David Harbour is obviously the standout with the hardest job. He has to be extremely innocent and emotive purely through movement and he pulls it off effortlessly.
Christopher Landon's direction is really good, the film has some fun set pieces combined with the right songs to make them even better and the overall earnesty of the film wins you over by the end. The CG isn't anything spectacular but it's convincing enough and rarely pushes its own limitations.
