    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing it is BOOlieving it! April 8, 2002
    Format:VHS Tape
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Will bring tears April 2, 2006
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "Can I keep you?" November 19, 2000
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    "Casper" is a great movie. I am not a fan of Christina Ricci or Devon Sawa but I like the movie because it has great special effects and the acting is really good. It's also quite funny. My favorite scene is the dance with Kat and Casper. I really liked the end because Devon was the real life Casper and he was really hott when he was 17. My favorite line of the whole movie was "can I keep you?" because I thought it was really sweet and that's when Kat realized it was Casper. I think the only thing that sucked about this movie was that Devon only had a cameo. His role should have been longer. I am going to buy the movie soon. It's great!

    Casper is a fun children's film, that can be watched as a family and keep everyone entertained. Unlike many movies concerning ghosts, there is no reason to worry that this movie will upset or scare even the most sensitive children. Casper is sweet and endearing, and even the vicious ghosts in this film are far from threatening as they quickly bring a smile to your face and alleviate any tension with humor.
    However, Casper does not rely souly on laughter, and has a strong plot to back it up. It raises spiritual questions that make you think, and has very heartfelt moments of intense emotion. You grow to care about the characters as we watch Casper and Kat in their simultaneous search for friendship, and Dr. Harvey in his quest to resolve his own unfinished business and finally get some closure.
    Malachi Pearson does an outstanding job as the voice of Casper, and portrays all of his emotions very convincingly. You can also look forward to a great performance from Bill Pullman, and will love hating the bumbling villains portrayed by Cathy Moriarty and Eric Idle. Unfortunately, there are times where Christina Ricci seems to have some difficulty filling her role as Kat, and occasionally makes scenes awkward and unconvincing.
    The score for this film is beautiful, and adds a great deal to the spirit and mood of the movie.
    There is some light use of profanity that I don't find necessary or appropriate for a family film aimed largely at children, but it can be easily overlooked.

    not for the language. There wasn't much but it certainely made itself clear. I didn't feel there was any need for it in this movie at all! So little kids and parents be warned! Still it's a great lot of fun and deffinitly worth looking into! :-) check it out. A good ending and good plot points make it exciting and fun with some pretty good laughs throughout.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Some charm, but language a problem January 5, 2005
    Format:VHS Tape
    I just rented this tape to watch with my kids, and found myself grateful that they tend to talk through movies. The language is not appropriate for a children's movie - and some of the profanity is not subtle (e.g. a ghost loudly proclaiming that "the b--ch is back").

    Eric Idle is a nice touch, some of the interactions between father and daughter are well-done, _but_ the evil character is drawn with absolutely no subtlety, the screams of ghost-spotters become tedious, and the aggression and (implied) violent deaths are not appropriate for small children.

    I suspect many of my objections are the filmmakers' attempt to "spice up" the movie for a teen audience, but they certainly remove a large pool of potential viewers; I wouldn't expose a child less than about 10 to the language (by then they'll have heard it from their classmates, and parents will have had a chance to train them not to use it).

    Hate to sound like a prig (I always swore I would be a "cool" mom) - BUT, kids can be sharp-eared little parrots, and I don't feel like having MY kids call me a b--ch any earlier than they likely will (around 12, I suspect).
