If I had to describe this movie in one word, I'd say it's pretty CUTE. It's nothing amazing, but you have to keep in mind that's it's mainly for little kids, and possibly families with high cuteness tolerance. I think it made an adorable holiday film.
Not many people I know have seen this movie, and before a few weeks ago I'd never even heard of it. And the ones who have seen it say it's stupid, not funny, the animation is horrible, and way too corny.
It may be a bit on the corny side, I admit. But it's for KIDS, and it's Casper, so I expected as much. Of course it comes nowhere near comparing to the 1995 Casper film, but it's one of the better sequels.
Anyway, I'd say it was pretty funny for and not stupid at all. And as far as the animation, I've seen MUCH worse. It's pretty good for what this movie was made for. Better than a lot of the movies you'd find in this one's genre.
Anyway, the worst thing about this movie is there are one or two inconsistencies with the other films and such, but it shouldn't bother you unless you're a complete Casper fanatic.
I'd say it's worth watching, and it comes on television quite a lot during the holiday season, so you've really got nothing to lose, except maybe a couple of hours, and that's only if you don't know how to have any fun.
P.S. The above comments are mine and no one else's. Keep in mind, I'm slightly biased, being a huge Casper fan. But that also means I'd know if it sucked compared to the other movies. If you think 'Ahmahgawd, this sounds great!' and you run out and buy the film, and you think it sucks, you can blame me. And I'm sorry. But don't take the time to sit through an entire children's' film only to pick out what you don't like. Try to have some fun and enjoy yourself. It is Casper, after all.
