Furious that her late father only willed her his gloomy-looking mansion rather than his millions, Carrigan Crittenden is ready to burn the place to the ground when she discovers a map to a treasure hidden in the house. But when she enters the rickety mansion to seek her claim, she is frightened away by a wicked wave of ghosts. Determined to get her hands on this hidden fortune, she hires afterlife therapist Dr. James Harvey to exorcise the ghosts from the mansion. Harvey and his daughter Kat move in, and soon Kat meets Casper, the ghost of a young boy who's "the friendliest ghost you know." But not so friendly are Casper's uncles--Stretch, Fatso and Stinkie--who are determined to drive all "fleshies" away. Ultimately, it is up to Harvey and Kat to help the ghosts cross over to the other side. Written by

A musical scene, titled "Lucky Enough to Be A Ghost," was scripted and filmed. The three ghosts sang about their mental problems during a session with Dr. Harvey. It was dropped because of cost; the animation would have cost a few million dollars. See more »
Casper's reflection is not visible in the mirror. Neither is Kat's, even though she is right next to him. See more »
An outstanding technical achievement, and so much more!
Casper is a beautifully made movie. It has great humor, excellent cast, an enchanting music score, spectacular special effects and a very touching story. This movie is a perfect family movie and certainly not targeted only for children.
Look out for some very amusing cameos (including Clint Eastwood and Mel Gibson).
Full marks on this one!
