Casper | 1995 | PG | - 1.4.1

Casper the Friendly Ghost is back and has made friends with psychologist to the ghosts Bill Pullman and his daughter Christina Ricci.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A couple of chaste kisses, a couple of vague sexual references.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Many scenes, played for laughs, where people encounter the ghosts and scream and run away. A man has his head twisted backwards, a car is hit by a demolition ball, the ghosts scream and make scary faces and they chase people (sometimes with weapons). The ghosts contemplate killing a man, a young girl is sent flying down a rail on a trick chair, a woman tries to kill a man with an ax and then tries to run him down with a car. The car crashes into a tree and she falls down a ravine (and dies). A man is tossed out a window. Many pratfalls and tumbles.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Death and ghosts.
MESSAGE - You will be rewarded for your good deeds; sacrificing for someone else what you wanted for yourself is good.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
