While in a coma after a bus accident, ‘s spirit leaves his body and roams the city trying to keep watch over his family, though he can only be seen when it is dark enough for his aura to materialize. This is one of those movies that encompasses two of the scariest words in the English language: ‘concept comedy’. On top of that, this unquestionably unfunny, graceless and ridiculous exercise in bad filmmaking was directed by the great Sidney Poitier.
