Casper

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kat is being introduced to her new classmates, Casper is seen tying the students' shoelaces together. This includes the snobby blonde sitting in front. But when the camera pans out, her feet are clearly too far apart for this, not like how they showed them while being tied.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Harvey sees his dead wife, Amelia, for the first time as a ghost, he talks to her half way up the staircase in the manor while the party is going on. The camera changes angles a few times from the side of their heads, to Amelia's view of Dr. Harvey. In each different camera angle, his hair changes place, from the side of his head, it slips down in front of his face.

Continuity mistake: When the priest comes to Whipstaff in the beginning of the film, his cross is firmly snagged on his button. Next shot, it is perfectly free from being stuck.

Continuity mistake: At the part when they are in the closet, the light bulb is swinging back and forth and in the next shot it is either stopped or it is gone, one of the two.

Continuity mistake: Kat has different rings all the way through the movie. Like when she's hugging her dad after he became human again, she is wearing one ring on her middle finger. Then on the next shot, the ring is gone.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Dr Harvey is fighting with Stinky, Fatso and Stretch, he gets smelled out and rolls up in the red carpet down the stairs. When he unrolls out of the carpet, it is obviously a much shorter carpet.

Continuity mistake: When Kat finds the button in the book it is covered in dust. When the camera angle changes it is wiped clean.

Continuity mistake: When the kids take a vote for having the Halloween dance at Whipstaf, the blonde girl is standing in front of the class as all the kids raise their hands and the bell rings. The shot then goes to the bell and then back to the kids sitting in their chairs. The blonde girl is sitting in her seat when a few seconds ago she was standing up. Also when all the kids get up to leave and trip, we see that none of their shoes are actually tied even though Casper tied them a few moments earlier.

Continuity mistake: When going through the Up and At 'Em Machine, Kat is splattered with toothpaste. It remains on her face until the blow-dryer segment, and it's suddenly gone.

Continuity mistake: While Dr Harvey is fighting the trio his pants are cut off, seconds later he comes out of the closet and his pants are fine.

Continuity mistake: After Kat goes through the Up and at 'Em machine while sitting in a chair, we see Carrigan and Dibbs go through it, and they're in another chair. They then leave the chair and walk through the tunnel into the lab. Later, when Casper pushes Kat backwards through the machine, the chair that Carrigan and Dibbs were on is nowhere to be found.

Continuity mistake: Before Carrigan and Dibs get in the mansion for first time he's soaked by the rain but seconds later he is dry.

Trivia: Early in the film, an SUV is smashed by a wrecking ball in front of Whipstaff. A real SUV was smashed for that film and it was obviously one that had been in a wreck previously. Notice that the passenger door is crooked and pulled away from the frame.

Question: How exactly did Casper die? I know he said something about it getting too cold out and him getting very sick but they never make it quite clear. Is it hypothermia?
