This is such a cute movie! I watched it primarily for Bill Pullman, but Christina Ricci was great! This is a perfect film for watching on Halloween, when you want something keeping in the "Spirit" of the holiday but nothing gory or scary. Kids of all ages should love this, although it might be a little frightening for younger ones. It has lots of very funny moments and it was very well done.

This fun, spooky movie will have you smiling, but also sleeping at times. This is a great Halloween movie for kids, I remember watching it growing up and loving it. But watching it again now that I am older definitely ruins it a bit for me. It’s still a fun movie to watch, but there are too many points in the film that either move way too fast or way too slow. And for a kids movie there are some ‘dark’ or not completely appropriate moments, so I’d say this movie is best for more mature kids (like 9-13), but it is an outdated movie, so it may not catch today’s kids interest. My favourite things in this movie are the cast and the set designs/aesthetic of the film, spooky but not horror. 3.5/5 stars

I wish I had read reviews of this movie before I let my 8 year old watch it. He watched in the van while I was listening in the front seat. The language and themes were not appropriate for kids under 12 in my opinion.

I enjoyed the movie. I would have been disappointed if it were a repeat of the old cartoons. I give Casper five stars.

A fun film. Very interesting house. Usual contraptions are also all well done. Cristina Ricci and Bill Pullman are always enjoyable.

Good family movie.

Hideously bad live-action film with CG ghosts. Completely ruins the charm of the Casper cartoon, especially when Casper appears as a real boy. Yuk!

Casper: There's a girl... on my bed. YES!
