      This is known as one of the worst films that Bill Cosby was in .This is ironic sense it was directed by Sidney Poitier who is known to be a great producer.Why did the movie get the bad rap that it did.

      The main thing thats wrong with this movie is the premise.Its about a man,played by Bill Cosby.He has 3 kids whom he raises on his own.He gets in car accident with a satan worshipper cab driver after work.The cab driver is a lunatic,he drives frantically and eventually ahs bill and him fly off a cliff and into the sea.Bill jumps out of his body and becomes a ghost form on


      earth afterwards.He can only stay on earth for about a couple of days before he disappears.Near the end of the movie his body ends up being found and the family has to get his ghost form into it to turn him back to normal

      It is really akward to see Bill Cosby in a role like this.The plot premise itself dosen’t have much to deliber.It is essentially a couple of gags involving Bill Cosby in his ghost form. An example of this is when he goes to take a physical at a hospital and he gets a tape recorder to make it seem as if his heart is beating.His heart really can’t ...


      • beat because he is dead.Another annoying part is when Bill Cosby gets turned into a ghost and is sent to random place run by a man called Edith.It is not really explained why Edith summoned Bill in the first place.He tells Bill that he only has three days to stay on earth but Bill demands that he be sent back to earth so he can take care of his children.

        Another problem the film deals with is the relationship between Bill and one of his children who is a teenage girl.it attempts to come off as seroius part of the movie when it isnt.THe converstations between them are like antics in a

        cheap sitcom.The stuff they talk about is a boy she is dating and owning arguing over her owning a car.This part of the movie is boring and stale.

        The last part of the movie is really bad.Bill Cosby’s teen daughter falls down thee stairs and jumps out of her body and becomes a ghost like him.For some strange reason,when teh family goes to get Bill’s body back,she goofs around and avoids trying to get back in her own body.It is hard to understand why she wouldn’t be more concerned about her father.At the end,the satanic cab driver comes by and gives Bil his wallet back.How did he survive anyway.This is not explained in the movie.
