Curtain Call


Time Out says

Spader, a publisher with job trouble and a nervous love life, moves into an old house, which, he soon discovers, he's sharing with a couple of bickering ghosts (Caine and Smith). Not a lot happens. Plotting is unadventurous, the dialogue contains about a million words, none of them amusing or clever, and the film curls up and dies in the pauses for laughter which the actors have optimistically allowed after each feeble rally. Spader, lacking the practised insouciance of his co-stars, makes heavy weather of the hero.
