Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars How much swearing does a movie need? Jan. 11 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The characters in this movie must had used bad lanuage about 10 to 20 times in an hour and 41 minutes. You have a dad, and his daughter, 4 ghosts, a mad woman and a man that her partner. Or whatever he is. How much more fun do you need? Of course for some reason this movie has not been released on dvd? But maybe soon the company of this film made decide to bring Casper on dvd. When Casper opens, a lady named Carrigan Crittender (Cathy Moriarty) is ferious to learn that her dead father has only left her a mansion named Whappistaff. She even yells at her partner named Dibs (Eric Idle). They take for for Maine and learn all by themselves that the house is haunted by a freindly ghost named Casper (Malaoni Pearson), his grumpy uncles Stretch (Joe Nipate), Stinkie (Joe Alaskey) and Fatso (Brad Garrett). So when the 3 out of 4 ghosts scare away people she hired to get rid of the ghosts, she decides to have the place torn down but again the ghosts scare away the workers. Until one day when Casper sees a story on Hardcopy about a ghost psychiatrist named Dr. James Harvery (Bill Pullman) and his daughter Kat Harvey (Christina Ricci) and quicky disappears and puts the story on in Carrigan's hotel room where she calls the town that Jmaes Harvey and Kat are currently in and hires James to take a try iof rid the masnion of the ghosts, but doesn like his weeks or years reply on how long it should approzimatly take.
If you love movies that was children's animated shows, I reccomemd you to watch Casper. Plus if you are a fan of either Mr. Rogers, Ben Stein, Rodney Dangerfield, or Mel Gibson, they all pretty much has apparances in the movie. Or had apparances if thier scenes were deleted from the film. I know for sure you can see both Mr. Rogers and Ben Stein are dentifly seen in this movie.

I'm a big animation fan, so naturally I love to see live action movies based on cartoon characters. Also, back when this came out I was totally in love with Ricci. Maybe it seems odd to give this film five stars, but then you have to commend them for making a good big budget movie about Casper. That had to be tricky. It's simple in some ways, I mean, you have the usual, greedy crook villain character that's in so many live-action cartoon movies, and you have the usual silly lines and some bad acting here and there, but there are so many good things about this movie too. The effects are great, as well as the music and the Haunted House. The voices are also excellent. Plus, there were a lot of cool cameos, which were really the best parts of the movie. Especially Dan Aykroyd in a very brief scene as Ghostbuster Ray Stantz. It was a little weird when we see Casper in the flesh at the end, looking older and acting smoother than he sounds and appears as a ghost. I also am not a big fan of Kat's mom at the end, but whatever. There are little bothers here and there, but it is still an excellent movie and definitely a fave. And definitely one of Ricci's best. I'll leave you with a synopsis, in case you haven't seen the film.
Casper is a friendly ghost who lives in an old mansion with his three rude, even abusive uncles. It's all very much a take on Cinderella. A mean, greedy woman named Carrigan has recently inherited the mansion and believes there is a treasure hidden in it, so she hires Dr. James Harvey to get rid of the ghosts so she can do a thorough search. The doc has a daughter named Kat, played by Christina Ricci, who Casper develops a crush on and makes friends with. The Doc tries to talk the ghosts into moving out, and Kat plans a big Halloween party, while Carrigan causes trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, fun movie! April 4 2001

Format:VHS Tape
I just love CASPER. It's a really great movie. CASPER is about a man (Bill Pullman) who studies the supernatural in search for his dead wife. He keeps moving his teenager daughter Kat (Christina Ricci) around all over the place because his job requires a lot of traveling. Kat hates all the moving because she never gets a chance to live in a particular place long enough to make any friends. When her father is asked to find the spirits who live in a haunted house in Maine, he promises Kat that this will be the last place they will move to.
A woman who wants Kat's father to talk to the ghosts wants him to do that because she is looking for a "secret treasure" that has been hidden in the house for years. Little does anyone know that this is the home of Casper the ghost and his "uncles": Stinky, Fatso, and Streatch. And they are not happy that somebody is moving into their house except for Casper. Casper is excited because Kat - a girl - is moving into the house, too. So while the father and Kat are living at the mansion, the three ghosts try to make them miserable...so miserable that they'll want to move out. But Casper is trying to impress Kat so he can win her over! An excellent movie with a special appearence by teen crooner, Devon Sawa, as Casper, the real boy.
If you are a fan of the Supernatural and of comedy movies, than this movie is for you!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing Is Believing Dec 8 2000

Seeing Is Believing and after you see this movie, you'll see that it's a great movie from start to finish. A man (Bill Pullman) who studies the paranormal and is searching for the ghost of his dead wife moves to a haunted mansion with his daughter (Christina Ricci). They soon find a friendly ghost named Casper and three crazy and hilarious ghosts. While there, they both learn a lot of valuable lessons about ghosts and about what they're looking for.
"Casper" is an all around great movie. The ghosts are hilarious and it has a great story and it's very entertaining. The drama and the uplifting parts of the movie don't ruin the movie's overall value at all, they make it better. This is not a movie that is just for kids. If you like great movies, I recommend giving "Casper" a chance.
