Abstract: "Ghost therapist" Dr. James Harvey and his daughter Kat arrive at drafty, old Whipstaff Manor. Its greedy owner, Carrigan Crittendon, 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, her partner-in-slime, can get their hands on the manor's fabled treasure. Casper finds a kindred spirit in Kat, but the Ghostly Trio will not tolerate "fleshies" in their house.

This 1995 family film tries to put a fun spin on the story of a paranormalist and widower (Bill Pullman) who moves into a new house with his daughter (Christina Ricci) and meets up with the ghost of a dead little boy. Based on the comic book about Casper the friendly ghost, the film is a dreary series of awkward interactions between live actors and computer effects, and you can almost see Pullman and Ricci reconsidering the project while on camera. A few cameo appearances from uncredited stars help things a bit. But there's no way, based on this film, that one could have guessed that its director, Brad Silberling, would go on to make the exceptional drama City of Angels. --Tom Keogh

This is a wholesome story of a boy who became ill and died much too young. He falls in love with a young 'live' girl who moves into the abandoned mansion with her father (a believer in the possibility of reaching into the beyond and speaking to the spirits). The three pesky ghosts add humor (guests can be so bothersome, especially if they're dead). Throw in a little greed for tension and it's a wonderful, entertaining plot for all ages. The scene between Casper and his mother will bring tears...but I loved it.

Who says there are no such things as ghosts? Not if there is the ghostly inhabitants of Whipstaff Manor in Friendship, Maine!
This desolate mansion is then, in the words of one of the members of the Ghostly Trio of Whipstaff, 'intruded' by Kat Harvey (Christina Ricci) and her eccentric father Dr. James Harvey (Bill Pullman), a ghost therapist. Carrigan Crittenden (Cathy Moriarty) had hired Dr. Harvey to exorcise the ghosts, including Casper the friendly ghost and his three obnoxious uncles, Stretch, Fatso and Stinkie, aspiring to gain Whipstaff's 'buried gold'.
Intertwining humour, all-time 'floating' fun and a modern Cinderella story, 'Casper' promises to please as a movie which is compelling, hilarious, captivating, heart-warming, witty and above all, truly 'fleshtastic'.
'Casper' is recommended for any audience, regardless of age. ... 'Casper' ... manages to appear endearing and ultimately special.
The magic of Bill Pullman, Christina Ricci as well as that of director Brad Silberling, executive producer Steven Spielberg, and other producers weaves between each and every scene to eventually lift us off our feet.
Above all, I LOVE THIS MOVIE! Casper is my all time favourite character. Truly fleshtastic. BOOlistic! You won't BOOlieve it until you see it.

I absolutely love this movie and it really brings me back to my childhood. I love watching it for the funny, silly sense of humor of the ghosts and I really love the the magic that is in this film. I just think it is such a classic. My favorite scene of the movie is when the ghosts are eating at the table and the food is falling on the ground--I just find that scene really funny! The special effects are really good for it being from the mid-90's and I just personally really enjoy the story line that the film has as well. It's super cute, family friendly and just classic in my opinion. The I also was in love with Devon Sawa as a teen girl when this came out and so his appearance in the movie always just makes me smile! And I found out that James Horner does the music for the film and I LOVE his work! He is iconic in the film music industry. Just love it! Had to have it on my phone before a flight so I had something to watch in the airport travelling! Great movie, if you have seen it or if it is a new film to watch, it's hard not to enjoy the storyline of this film!

I can think of many movies made for kids and teenagers that adults appreciate and enjoy too, but this isn't one of them. My husband and I found this movie to be silly and annoying. The special effects were impressive, and there were several fun cameos, but we had to turn it off after approximately 30 minutes. Except for a few funny scenes with Eric Idle (Cathy Moriarty should have taken a few more acting classes), the comedy is slapstick and falls flat. And as another reviewer notes, the Ghostly Trio didn't work. The three "bad" ghosts were over-the-top obnoxious and irritating, and they were so loud, we couldn't understand most of what they said.

There are several instances of mildly offensive language I would not have wanted my children to hear when they were young. Nothing terrible, but definitely not "G-rated" like movies made for children of yesteryear. :-)

Having said all this, the Casper character was adorable, but not enough to carry the movie.

Not for kids under 10 years or so.

I loved this movie when I saw it in the theatre back in the 90s. I liked the way it explored Casper, born Casper McFadden, as a person, regardless of whether he was "alive" or "dead," and told us something about his life and his living family. I found Christina Ricci, as Kat, the girl he falls in love with, to be charming and engaging. Bill Pullman, as Kat's weirdo scientist father, seeks to learn what "haunts" ghosts and discussed some interesting theories about what drives spirits. Casper's uncles, the obnoxious Ghostly Trio, I could have done without. I found their slapstick over the top and heavy-handed, not to mention, unnecessary. The film is at its best when showing how a child's consciousness, lingering after physical death, continues to seek some meaning in a new plane of existence.
