I've had a lot of support for the project, from lots of people, and it's all been very exciting. Some people have searched for any Guttenberg film, and some people have been keeping their eyes open for one particular film.
Sarah is one of the second group. And which film was it that she was looking for?
Casper: A Spirited Beginning.
But strange motives for purchases aside, her own personal mission means that we can tick another box on the Guttenberg mission.
Released in 1997, this is a weird mix of CGI and live action. It begins with a train journey with young Casper trying to figure out what's going on and where he is. Because he is a dead little boy who doesn't realize that he's dead.
Clearly, the perfect beginning to a children's movie.
Steve plays the father of the kid on the front. He is a BAD DAD. He's an architect who is trying to revitalize his town by pulling down haunted old abandonded mansions and put up strip malls. Lori Loughlin, also known as television's favourite Aunt Becky, plays the kid's teacher, who is violently opposed to the pulling down of haunted old abandonded mansions and putting up strip malls.
Will these crazy opposites attract? Oh, I think they will.
There's a LOT of overacting in this movie, but from everyone, so we can't really place the blame on poor Steve Guttenberg.
It ends up with everyone living happily ever after and no one pulls down the haunted old abandonded masion.
