" If you must look for Treasure, don't look any farther than your own family "
2 April 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Out of the fruit full mind of noted author Mark Twain comes this comic based story called " Charlie's Ghost Story. " It relates the yarn about a Archaeological father who devotes most of his spare time seeking the skeletal remains of one Spanish explorer Fransisco Coronado (Cheech Marin). In doing so, he woe fully neglects his son Charlie (Trenton Knight). The boy could sure use his father's help as he is daily being picked on by bullies at his new school. To substitute for his father, Charlie discovers a friend in the visiting Ghost of the Spanish Conquistador, Fransisco De Coronado. His one request to the boy, is to have his earthly remains be buried in Hallowed ground. This does not sit well with his father who spends his time digging them up. Aside from the bullies at school, Charly get to meet other new friends, like a cute neighbor girl. The film is one you'd expect to see on the Disney channel, but despite the talents of Cheech Marin, the movie is light on entertainment and the hilarity one would expect in a family movie. Still the film is entertaining for the children, but not much else. Recommended for the youngsters. ****
