This movie was great fun! I didn't know what to expect, but I decided to ignore all the negativity and go in without any expectations. The first scene in the haunted mansion gave me goosebumps, and had me pretty scared. After that it was all good fun, with lovable characters, great cameos, and awesome CGI and color keys. I loved Patty the most, I was afraid they would make her the token angry black woman, and I hate when that stuff happens, but despite knowing little about her - and about McKinnon's character - she grew on me the fastest. She was kind, funny, and appreciated. I plan on seeing this movie again very soon!
