Product Details

Product Description


Peter O'Toole (Lawrence of Arabia, My Favorite Year) gives an exuberant performance in High Spirits. Peter Plunkett (O'Toole) hopes to save his mortgaged castle by turning it into a tourist attraction--the most haunted castle in Ireland. When American tourists arrive--among them Jack (Steve Guttenberg) and Sharon (Beverly D'Angelo), a couple whose marriage is rapidly disintegrating--Plunkett's tomfoolery arouses the real ghosts, who decide to give these interlopers everything they're asking for. But when Jack accidentally helps a beautiful ghost named Mary (Daryl Hannah), she decides he's the man to help her break the curse she's been suffering for 200 years. High Spirits is an odd foray into comedy by director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire). The special effects are clumsy, but the strong supporting cast includes Jennifer Tilly, Peter Gallagher, and Liam Neeson as Mary's murderous 200-year-old husband. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Daryl Hannah, Peter O'Toole and Steve Guttenberg star in this gleefully ghoulish comedy sparkling with romance and rollicking with supernatural special effects. Written and directed by Neil Jordan (Interview With the Vampire) and co-starring Beverly D'Angelo, Jennifer Tilly, Peter Gallagher and Liam Neeson, High Spirits is the most fun you'll have in this world or the next!Impoverished Peter Plunkett (O'Toole) hatches the perfect plan to save his debt-ridden Irish castle: lure American tourists by advertising the place as haunted. But when Peter and his staff don sheets and chains to go a-haunting, they scare up more than paying guests'they arouse the real ghosts of Castle Plunkett! And when American tourist Jack (Guttenberg) spies a gorgeous ghost named Mary (Hannah), it's love at first sighting. Now all Jack has to worry about is Mary's murderous spook of a husband and their 200-year age difference!

The DVD disc will not play in either my blue ray players or my computer. The movie itself is awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Liam Neeson May 13 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although the acting of Steve G in this movie is on par with his normally poor level, I love the story. It's cute and it was the first time I saw Liam Neeson in a film. I have enjoyed his movies since then. Don't particularly like Daryl Hannah either. Liam and the cute story line make this movie for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant wait!! Sept. 28 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I have been searching for this video for ages! I had tried all the local Music and video shops in my town and also in Belfast but everyone had given me the same answer, it had stopped being sold a few yeas ago and unfortunalty is impossible to get hold of. I was very dissapointed. Finally a friend said try Amazon, so I did and now Im just waiting for Amazon to post it to me, please GET A MOVE ON! I am grateful you have a copy but you are taking forever to get it over here!!

5.0 out of 5 stars O'Toole and Cast are hilarious!! March 21 2004
This is one of the funniest films I've ever seen. Peter O'Toole and this amazing cast have cooked up a class-act comedy with lots of spooks galore. A must have for the comic collector!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Delightful After All These Years Feb. 23 2004
High Spirits is the kind of movie that the whole family can enjoy. Although the title would indicate that this may be a ghost story, there is nothing to fear. The ghost sequences are only the slightest bit "creepy" and soon lose all their edge when we meet the ghosts themselves. (Liam Neeson and Daryl Hannah) Most folks would probably not mind being haunted by one of these two!
This movie has two BIG things going for it. Number one is the cast, all of whom just shine. Big names of Guttenberg, Hannah, Neeson, D'angelo and most notably O'toole can almost guarantee a good time. Peter O'toole, as always, is especially endearing.
The other thing this movie has is pure charm. Its a good old fashioned almost disneyesque kind of film. Its a love story with enough fun in it to keep everybody entertained. Its MAIN charm comes from the setting. A quaint old "haunted" Irish castle where the servants have a beautiful old fashioned brogue. I found myself wishing I was there on several ocassions. Some will say it is insipid and has no social value. This is true. Its just good old fashioned movie fun. Sit back, kick off your shoes and enjoy. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars May not be the scareist but ... Jan. 27 2003
If you want one of those "jumper" movies -- you know the kind, the ones that make the girl next to you jump, grab your arm and pull you close -- this isn't it, and don't expect Oscar caliber performances either. But if you just want an evening on the couch with a funny ghost movie and a bag of popcorn then this is the one. Relax, put your feet up and have a good laugh. You'll enjoy it.
