Without the talent of Ricci, Casper would have been a truly barren motion picture. As it is, it's still not very good.

A hollow and garish echo of the sweet little ghost.

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.

The horror, the horror.

Casper moves like a dirge, especially when it sinks into a meditation on death a la Ghost. As specter spectacles go, Casper is a bit of a ghost bust.

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.

Great special effects. Unfortunately, they can't carry the movie alone.

Maybe Casper will be back with a better script next time. I'd like to see him again.

As expected, it features extra-spectral effects, slews of celebrity guest shots and splendidly decorated sets. For all of that, though, the film is duller than a dead man's eyes.

You have a movie that's constantly busy... but never really going anywhere.

A very juvenile film, aimed squarely at the preteen audience, which it will no doubt satisfy.

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