Product Details


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 Excellence at it's best May 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
What an excellent movie. I love it just as much now as I did when I was 11 yrs old. Today in particular I searched for it on DVD because I wanted to buy it and I was quite disappointed when I saw that it wasn't available on DVD. What a shocker that was since this movie is, in my opinion, one of the best children's movies of it's time. So hopefully sometime soon the production company will realize this and make start offering it on DVD.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Scream or Sugar?" Oct. 31 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Casper the friendly ghost lives in an old mansion along with 3 other ghosts. When a ghost chaser (Bill Pullman) and his daughter (Ricci) enters the mansion to get rid of the ghosts, Ricci becomes friends with Casper. Meanwhile, Pullman focuses on the 3 other ghosts that "live" in the mansion. This is first "normal" role for Christina Ricci, who was in the Addams Family movie as Wednesday.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous, regardless of if you're 5 or 55 years old Sept. 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of those movies that all of my friends have a copy of, and love it, but everyone's afraid of admitting they bought it for themselves.
Even now, seven years after its release, the special effects look good, which is really saying something. The plot, while simple, is also touching, making it one of the best movies to watch after a bad day in the big, bad, adult world. Everyone needs a laugh, even us grown-ups.
However, I'm shocked that this isn't on DVD. Wait, no, appalled. Here I sit, with money burning a hole in my pocket, and I love this movie. I don't buy VHS anymore. But, I guess I'll just have to wait until the studio exec people remember this little $100 million plus box-office grossing film needs a DVD!!
