About the Movie

Seeing is believing when everyone’s favorite friendly ghost stars in this charming, live-action adventure from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. “Ghost therapist” Dr. James Harvey (Bill Pullman) and his daughter, Kat (Christina Ricci), have been hired by Carrigan Crittenden (Cathy Moriarty) and her partner-in-slime, Dibs (Eric Idle), to get rid of the spirits at drafty, old Whipstaff Manor. Sure enough, the place is haunted by The Ghostly Trio – Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso – who don’t believe “fleshies” should come anywhere near their haunted domain. But Kat soon meets another, very different kind of spirit: Casper, a good-natured ghost who's just looking for a friend. Can they all learn to live with each other? With dazzling special effects and undeniable humor, it’s a family friendly adventure that’s ghostly fun for everyone!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Casper's movie is not the cleverest one around, but its hero may be the most lovable. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: A fairy tale with the soul of a rerun. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 16, 2010

Rotten: Casper moves like a dirge, especially when it sinks into a meditation on death a la Ghost. As specter spectacles go, Casper is a bit of a ghost bust. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This doesn't usually happen to me, but 15 minutes before the end of Casper I suddenly realized that if I didn't take a deep breath, I was going to start sobbing. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008
