*** Critic Reviews For Casper ***
- " The set design, however, merely disguises what is in fact an intimate and likeable picture." – Wally Hammond , Time Out
- " 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. " – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
- " Never cloying or abundant with cutesy dialogue… " – Felix Vasquez Jr. , Cinema Crazed
