Casper (1995)

Directed by
Brad Silberling

Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman star in director Brad Silberling's supernatural family comedy about a friendly ghost. The obnoxious, self-centred Carrigan Crittenden isn't happy to discover all she inherited in her father's will was a decrepit old house. Rumour of hidden treasure tempers her disappointment, but, visiting Whipstaff Manor with her assistant Dibbs, all they find there are ghosts - and they are hostile to the living. Crittenden's attempts to banish Whipstaff's spectral residents have little effect, until the benign spirit Casper sees parapsychologist Dr James Harvey on TV. His claims of helping ghosts to find peace prompt Casper to influence Crittenden to employ him. Harvey's daughter Kat and Casper quickly become firm friends. But Casper's uncles, Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso, remain firmly opposed to tolerating human inhabitants at the Manor... Edited for content.
