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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
