The set design, however, merely disguises what is in fact an intimate and likeable picture.

Casper's movie is not the cleverest one around, but its hero may be the most lovable.

By all standards of logic and reason, this film should be crap... and yet somehow, it succeeds in its modest goals.

This doesn't usually happen to me, but 15 minutes before the end of Casper I suddenly realized that if I didn't take a deep breath, I was going to start sobbing.

As a technical achievement, it's impressive, and entertaining. And there is even a little winsome philosophy.

Only Ricci, strange gothic child that she is, gets close to shining next to the animation.

It's not clear why Steven Spielberg's Amblin decided to make a live-action entertainment starring the least interesting and most saccharine of all 50s cartoon characters.

Once the audience has become inured to the wide-eyed protagonist and impressive digitized effects, there's little sense of wonder or awe to be found.
