Casper (Widescreen Special Edition)

Brad Silberling
From director Brad Silberling and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment comes a live-action fun house ride filled with laughter, excitement and ghostly surprises. "Ghost therapist" Dr. James Harvey (Bill Pullman) and his daughter Kat (Christina Ricci) arrive at drafty, old Whipstaff Manor. Its greedy owner, Carrigan Crittendon (Cathy Moriarty), has hired Dr. Harvey to exorcise the house's apparitions: a friendly but lonely young ghost named Casper, who's just looking for a friend, and his outrageous uncles Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso (The Ghostly Trio). If the plan works, she and Dibs (Eric Idle), her partner-in-slime, can get their hands on the manor's fabled treasure. Meanwhile, Casper has found a kindred spirit in Kat, but The Ghostly Trio will not tolerate "fleshies" in their house. With hilarious antics and dazzling special effects from many of the creators of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Jurassic Park, Casper is a mile-a-minute adventure comedy for the whole family.

This is a good movie. I never watched the cartoons that this ghost character appeared in but I thought it wasn’t a bad movie. The visual effects are a bit dated and there is some swearing so beware if you are Sensitive to that kind of thing. The characters aren’t quite fully developed and there were some unnecessary scenes. Overall I thought it was a good movie with some nice cameos and a few funny parts. The film runs 101 minutes long. Watched once. 8/10.
