About

Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman star in director Brad Silberling’s sweet-natured family comedy about the problems of inheriting supernaturally afflicted real estate. Despite the presence of obnoxious ghosts Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso, the real villain of the piece is self-centred Carrigan Crittenden (Cathy Moriarty), who isn't happy about being gifted a decrepit old haunted house in her father’s will. Crittenden enlists the help of parapsychologist Dr James Harvey (Pullman), whose daughter Kat (Ricci) quickly becomes firm friends with the titular friendly ghost, Casper, setting the stage for a likeable family-friendly drama suitable for all ages.
