Storyline

Living under the care of his uncles: The Ghostly Trio, Casper has been letting them push him around and making his afterlife miserable by having him do chores for them while they are scaring "fleshes" for their amusement. Whenever Casper would try to stand up to them, he gets too timid to do so. While they are on vacation in a place called Sunnybrite Resorts, Casper meets with a good little witch girl named Wendy, whom she and her bewitching aunts are on the run from an evil warlock: Desmond Spellman who attempts on destroying her after discovering that she will be a greater witch than him. Like Casper, Wendy is a kind witch who also have her relatives mistreating her. Casper and Wendy have become good friends as they discover that ghosts and witches are each others worst enemies, so they come up with a plan to make their elders pair up to one another. Once Desmond comes into town, he determines to destroy Wendy at once. It is now up to Casper to do what he can to save his friend from...

Trivia

When the three witches approach the Crewcut Hunk, portrayed by Casper Van Dien, he quickly escapes their clutches by proclaiming "Sorry ladies, I've got to go and kill some bugs". This is referencing Caspers portrayal of Johnny Rico in Starship Trooper where they go around defending themselves from giant interplanetary insect type creatures, code named Bugs. See more »

Goofs

When Desmond first sees the magical static on his locating equipment, the location marker is in an area on the Montana-Canada border. Later in the film, when the location marker appears again, it is in an area on the east coast. See more »

Quotes

The Oracle: Attention, please listen, here is the latest: Desmond is now gone and Wendy is the greatest!
Geri: Her? She's the greatest witch?
The Oracle: She has done something no other can boast; This little witch befriended a ghost. So Wendy is the greatest, it is her I select. Someday she'll be queen, so show some respect!
Geri: Go Wendy!
Gabby: We always knew you had it in you!
Fanny: Yeah! Wendy for president!

Be fair the rating shouldn't be this low
30 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay now be fair, this is when alls said and done a kids film. I agree with the previous comment and so long as the kids enjoyed it that's what matters.

I found the film enjoyable and even if there are continuity errors so what? This isn't any huge film like transformers it was classic casper it's supposed to be enjoyable not brilliant and thats what makes a film good and I have no doubts that this film is enjoyable.

I feel no need to say anymore, don't apply large standards to it, this is one of the best casper films there is, it's fine for what it is, I say 7 although I'm very tempted to give it a 10 to bring the score back up it does not deserve as low as it has.
