Very Special Effects for this combined live action/animated adventure. The whole family will love it!

Casper is a great role model as everyone's favorite friendly ghost. I really suggest you watch this must-see spooktacular adventure. My Rating: PG for scary sequences, mild language, and some thematic elements.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

The script seems written by high school students. It's witless, sexual assault is played for laughs, and my eight-year-old (who isn't bothered by the flirting in Descendants) was cringing and uncomfortable with the "flirting."

This title has:

Too much sex
