When Peter Plunkett’s Irish castle turned hotel is about to be repossesed, he decides to spice up the attraction a bit for the ‘Yanks’ by having his staff pretend to haunt the castle. The trouble begins when a busload of American tourists arrive – along with some real ghosts. Among the tourists are married couple Jack and Sharon. Sharon’s father holds the mortgage on Castle Plunkett, so she’s hoping to debunk the ghosts. Jack, on the other hand, after meeting pretty ghost Mary, is very eager to believe. Can there be love between a human and ghost? Jack and Mary are going to try and find out.

User Reviews: If you can forgive the less-than-ideal acting by some of the other cast, Peter O’Toole once again shows why he’s one of the greatest actors in the English speaking world. From the scene where he’s trying to hang himself while arguing with his mother, to where he meets his ghost-Dad, O’Toole is hilarious as the bumbling, scheming drunk Irish fool who is desperate to keep the family castle in family hands.
