* CreatorBacklash: Russell Harvey, heir to the Harvey Comics legacy, thoroughly hated this film and how it forced child-unfriendly humor and an overly-dark, completely pointless backstory into something so beloved for its innocence. He also expressed disappointment in Steven Spielberg, whom he felt [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot wasted the perfect opportunity]] for a legitimately heartfelt adaptation.

* MoneyDearBoy: The only explanation for the celebrity cameos. Or the long-term presence of Eric Idle.
** Clint Eastwood and Mel Gibson's cameos were technically done out of a favor to Steven Spielberg, though this probably played a part in it too.
* OrphanedReference: In the finished film, Kat mentions that her dad "hit the ceiling" when she told him about the party. This is a reference to the end of the deleted ''Lucky Enough to Be a Ghost'' scene.

* OrphanedReference: In There was originally a CutSong called "Lucky Enough to Be a Ghost", which would have ended with the Ghostly Trio hoisting Dr. Harvey up to the ceiling just as Kat walks in to ask him about having the Halloween party at Whipstaff. This explains Kat's line in the finished film, Kat mentions that film about her dad father having "hit the ceiling" when she told him he found out about the party. This is a reference to Creator/ChristinaRicci does deliver the end of line in a dry enough way to make it non-obvious that this it's supposed to be a pun, but it's still hard to imagine the deleted ''Lucky Enough to Be mild-mannered Dr. Harvey hitting the ceiling in a Ghost'' scene.figurative sense either.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Friendship, Maine, the setting of the film, is a real place, but none of the movie was shot there. The downtown scenes were filmed in the more touristy Rockport, Maine, while most of the movie, including all the scenes involving Whipstaff, were filmed in California.
