A Fun Start To This Series
13 February 2009 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This is the first of many Happy Ghost films and it centers on a girl's school. While fleeing the rain at a camping trip, the girls (including a young Loletta Lee) come upon a rope that materializes into the form of the title character. He becomes their friend and does things for them, including making sure one of the girls wins events at a school athletic competition. This film is mostly harmless, with the only dose of major reality being teen pregnancy. I would guess this film was aimed for teens and it delivers. It had to be successful, it spawned so many sequels (I know about three more, but there may have been more). A pleasant, non raunchy teen comedy with a dose of comic horror. Pleasant viewing, I'd recommend it.
