1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Leigh Ann Hussey on Jan. 11 2001
Format: DVD
Patrick Stewart does his usual stellar job of taking what could otherwise be an indifferent film, with really kindof a sappy script, and turning it into pure art. The breadth and depth of his talent amazes me ceaselessly, and in this vehicle he travels easily from the roar you could hear in the nosebleed seats at the back of the theatre, to moments of incredible intensity and intimacy. It's a sweet story, once you get past the almost inevitable Hallmark family interaction formulae; truth be told, I found myself moved nearly to tears more than once, and all because of Patrick Stewart's performance.
See this movie if for no other reason; it's reason enough.

In a word, wonderful! June 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The first time I saw this movie, I was enjoying a night alone in my house. I turned on the t.v., expecting to see a very different movie, and instead, I was surprised with a wonderful adaptation of what had been a favorite story of mine when I was a little kid. Patrick Stewart is wonderful as the tormented ghost, I fell in love with the "boy-next-door", and you find yourself rooting for Neve Campbell, and hoping her father will change for the better. I will definately be looking for this movie later.

GREAT MOVIE!!! Sept. 27 2008
By Pamela J. Ring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie was better than John Gielgud version (matter of opinion)but both are well worth buying! Both are heart warming and moral valued so if you want to OWN 2 great movies? Either one or both will do. I give both movies 5 out or 5 stars no matter how many times they are watched!

Wonderfully entertaining March 30 2003
By Lisa Kleypas - Published on Amazon.com
Patrick Stewart's portrayal of the ghost was delightful and poignant and he wove into his role some Shakespeare which added depth. Neve Campbell was also exceptional as the young child who believed and shed her tears for the ghost's release.

Patrick Stewart makes a great ghost! Jan. 9 2007
By The Best - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is extremly well done. the scenery shots are magnificent. The story is a wonderful variation on several old ghost/haunting stories combined with a new twist. Great family film.

Best of Seven? Nov. 27 2007
By P. M Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There are at least seven versions of Oscar Wilde's THE CANTERVILLE GHOST out on DVD as of 2007. Can a slightly-dated, made for TV version really be worth your time and money? Can Patrick Stewart carry the title role as well as or better than Charles Laughton or John Gielgud?

YES!

The role requires the Ghost to be a Shakespearean and Stewart is a natural as the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, and Elizabethan Lord caught in limbo, ever regretting the involuntary manslaughter of his beloved.

Of course, the ghost encounters a modern American tenant of his manor. The daughter and her brothers discover that Sir Simon is more bluster than horror and set out to lift the curse.

Good supporting cast overcomes so-so production values. Good on-site locale helps.

A great follow-on to this DVD would be the classic 1930's campy drama 'The Ghost Goes West,' where a US grocery magnate buys a Scottish castle--with ghost, of course.

This version of THE CANTERVILLE GHOST has just the right blend of wit, romance, and pathos. Go for it!
