Casper

"OK"

Casper Review


Girl meets ghost. Ghost wants to become real to get girl. The live-action version of the classic cartoon doesn't have much to mention aside from some nifty effects and a story lifted from Cinderella. Christina Ricci is always fun to look at, even when she's seen working in her Disneyesque postpubescent era. Fun for kids, I suppose, but hardly worth mentioning otherwise.
