Did You Know?


Although the on-screen ending credits list "Copyright ©2011 Mickey Matson, LLC" (at 1:33:26), the U.S. Copyright Office records show the movie wasn't registered (PAu003654406) until 10/31/2012 with title "Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Conspiracy", with date of creation 2012, and with a DVD as its description. This was well after its 5/10/2012 premiere. The on-screen 2011 reference dates from the premiere copy and the 8/4/2011 registration (PAu003569980) of an "Electronic file (eService)" of a "Dramatic work and music" with title "Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Conspiracy" and with copyright claimant "Harold David Cronk" that probably included his screenplay/script.

As Mickey and Sully begin to climb the ladder in the lighthouse, Mickey asks Sully "You scared of heights?" She immediately shakes her head no and Mickey says "Me too." If Mickey meant to say that he were not afraid of heights, he would have said "Me neither", so either his answer makes no sense or he is indicating that he is afraid of heights and believes she is too, but without any cause to doubt her.

In 1863 Sudan, a group of men discover a box containing what we later learn is a large sapphire.

In present day North Bay, Michigan, Mickey attends the funeral of his beloved grandfather Jack. Young female relatives don't seem to care as they laugh at whatever is on someone's phone. But Mr. Stumpwater has wonderful things to say about the man. Later, Mickey finds out his grandfather left him a rock in his will. Not realizing its importance, the disappointed Mickey almost throws it into Lake Michigan before Mr. Stumpwater rescues it and reminds Mickey the rock is important.

Using a microscope, Mickey discovers a map on the rock and decides to investigate with his new friend Sully, a Chicago girl staying with her Grams while her parents work out their problems.

A couple of tough Southerners rob a local bank and proclaim the South will rise again. It turns out they are Copperheads working for Stalwert Priggish III, and their goal is to find the Alchemy Machine and make enough silver to take over the United States.

Grams and several others are part of a group of Patriots formed by Abraham Lincoln to protect the Three Elements that control the Alchemy Machine. Mickey's rock is one of the three, and another is in Jack's museum. And the sapphire is also discovered.

The Patriots and Copperheads now must fight to determine who controls the Alchemy Machine. Fortunately, the Southerners who robbed the bank are like the Three Stooges.

I really liked Sully, and Mickey is pleasant enough and quite smart. Patrika Darbo shows intelligence and determination. Ernie Hudson does a great job and also shows courage. And Christopher Lloyd does his usual good job in flashbacks.

The actors playing the Southerners are another matter. Rick Plummer is good as their leader. The bald man is funny and pretty good. The man with long hair, though, seems to lack talent and delivers laughs just because he is such a moron.

This is an interesting mystery even if it occasionally turns violent.
