Casper

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 friendly ghost who can't help scaring people, but here's your chance to search for an answer. Brad Silberling directed this 1993 feature from a script by Sherri Stoner and Deanna Oliver; the cast includes Christina Ricci, Bill Pullman, Cathy Moriarty, and Eric Idle.
