Overview

Casper

Based on the popular cartoon character, this family-oriented "ghost story" is about a not-so-scary spirit who bonds with a little girl (Christina Ricci). The eternally irritable Ms. Carrigan (Cathy Moriarty) discovers that the only thing she's been left in her recently departed father's will is a rickety old house in New England. Naturally, the woman is furious about this, until her "close personal friend" and assistant, Dibbs (Eric Idle of Monty Python fame), discovers a secret message that a treasure may be concealed somewhere in the house. The two take off for Maine, only to learn that the house is haunted by Casper "the friendly ghost" and his three ghostly uncles Stinky, Stretch, and Fatso. After futilely recruiting an exorcist (Don Novello, more or less reviving his Father Guido Sarducci character from Saturday Night Live) and a "professional ghost exterminator" (Dan Aykroyd), she brings in a "ghost psychiatrist" (Bill Pullman) and his daughter Kat (Ricci). Innocently attracted to the young girl, Casper befriends Kat as they try to save the ghosts' home from the evil Carrigan. Eye-popping special effects highlight this magical story that touches (albeit lightly) on the theme of what lies at the heart of human desires. Clint Eastwood, Rodney Dangerfield, Mel Gibson and The Crypt Keeper (of Tales from the Crypt) all make cameos as apparitions in the mirror Bill Pullman looks into in the house.

Originally, I was going to just come on here and rate this, but after having seen that no one had ever bothered to submit a review on it, I wanted to be sure that I did. This movie is classic! I remember having seen this after it first came out when I was barely in 7th grade in Jr. High with my brother, and after it's release, we would often bug our dad to rent this movie for us to watch. In fact, he might have been better off just buying it, because it might have wound up saving him money in the long run, because my brother and I loved this movie. After having not seen this for years, I finally picked this up one day, (I am in the business of collecting up movies that I watched & enjoyed growing up), and gave it a watch. After having watched this again after so long, a lot of it came back to me. Some of it is a little on the hokey side, but for the most part, this movie is classic and fun, and I really like the music that accompanies it as well. I am glad that I finally own this one. If you want something fun and enchanting for the whole family to watch, then I recommend this one. It makes for a good family movie night. Check it out!
