The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
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

For the scene where Casper drags Kat out the window takes her to the lighthouse, Christina Ricci had a piece of fishing line tied to her wrist, to give the appearance of being pulled by a ghost. See more »
Ghosts don't have a reflection. When Casper looks into a mirror, he can't see himself. But when Amber and Vic are dressed in costume for the party, Stretch, Fatso, and Stinkie spook them, and appear in the mirror. However, these are not their reflections. When the two kids fall, the ghosts are nowhere around, suggesting that the Ghostly Trio is actually inside the mirror. See more »
Being 'middle-aged', I suppose I was not the target audience for this movie, but I love it very much anyway. Kiddies aside, this movie is hysterical, well-acted, and touching too. The effects are great and, to be honest, I can't find a lot to critcize here, which for me is all I can ask of a movie.
