After three centuries, three witch sisters are resurrected in Salem Massachusetts on Halloween night, and it is up to two teen-agers, a young girl, and an immortal cat to put an end to the witches' reign of terror once and for all.
Sarah Jessica Parker,
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

It is clear that the ignition must be turned upwards to remove the resurrection liquid, as shown by Dibs when he stole it. But when Carrigan is turned into a ghost and he refuses to make her live again, he pushes the liquid out of the ignition with it turned downwards. That gesture should have caused the opening of the bottle or the destruction of the ignition. The bottle does not open, but the ignition sparks. That shows it is broken. How they brought Dr. Harvey back to life if the ignition is broken? See more »
DIBS! Get this thing cooking, you flaccid little worm you!
Ah, Carrigan! How kind of you to drop in!
You know, if there's one thing I've learned from you, it's 'always kick 'em when they're down'. And baby, you're six feet under. Oh, what a shame!
Sorry, sweetheart; we're through!
[gasps as she sees that Dibs is about to break the vial]
I am not gonna forget this, you ungrateful, lousy little worm you!
You can haunt me all you want, but it's ...

Early during the end credits, Stretch (doing his Little Richard imitation) bursts through the credits, singing. 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!
