A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Sometimes you have to try something new to knock yourself out of a rut. It might not be easy, and it might not lead to the results you were expecting, but change is usually good.
Positive Role Models
The ghost hunters may not have much experience, and they certainly don't work well together, but they give it their all, and sometimes having a lot of heart is enough.
Violence & Scariness
Some scares. People also get hit and knocked out, ostensibly by supernatural beings. One character gets into a brawl and takes out several people. Bickering.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Flirting and some suggestive language. An adult's supposed virginity is mocked.

Language includes "s--t," "f--k," "suck," "d--k," "p---y," "ass," and "douchebag."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ghost Team is a low-budget (and low-quality) comedy about a group of young adults -- including characters played by Justin Long and Jon Heder -- who investigate a supposedly haunted house and find more than they expected. There are a few scares and some fights/characters getting knocked out. You can also expect drinking (plus characters stumbling upon a meth lab) and swearing -- including "s--t," "ass," and the occasional "f--k." Note: An unrated version is available to rent/buy; this review doesn't cover the additional content included in that cut.

Is It Any Good?
We appreciate satire, but this comedy spoofing the reality TV/supernatural-investigation genre (yes, that's a thing) is just plain lifeless. For starters, there's the dialogue, which is overly explanatory and obvious. Pair that with a heavy-handed soundtrack and a lack of chemistry among the cast, and you have a movie about ghostly spirits that lacks any spirit.
Ghost Team gets points for trying, though: Any self-respecting TV junkie who's found him or herself falling down the paranormal reality TV rabbit hole knows just how rife for spoofing the material is.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
