Seek out the Meeksville Ghost, its very entertaining for families

Danny (Andrew Kavovit) arrives in a west Texas town, Meeksville, that has seen better days. Once a thriving post on the frontier, there's not much left but the memories. Our Dan is there to check out some abandoned gold mines for an investor. Meanwhile, Kate and her grandma, Emily, run the town's boarding house and try to preserve the village as an historical site. Yet, their deed is lost and, thus, they are at odds with another town's person, Emily Meeks (Leslie Anne Downs), who is a descendant of the village's namesake and says the place is HERS! She's a nasty lady, with two less than brilliant minions by her side. Although Dan comes to bunk at Grandma's, he and Kate take an instant loathing for each other. Moreover, once in his room, Danny comes face to, er, face with a ghost names Lucius Meeks (Judge Reinhold). This phantom is the genuine article and he pesters Dan for help. It seems many years ago, Lucius was involved in a gunfight, which ended badly. Ever since, Lucius has walked the earth, unable to go on to the afterlife. IF Dan will lend him support, perhaps the past can get a do-over, one that might score the deed for Kate. This would please her and Danno, both, as their dislike may be executing a U-turn. What will be the ending for this small town in the West? Do seek this one out, family film fans. Although made on a smaller budget, it has its rewards three times over. The cast is nice, with Reinhold, Downs, Kavovit and the rest very pleasurable. Then, too, the Wild West setting is fun while costumes, script, and direction work together for good results. Remember contented cows? This one is made to foster contented coach potatoes!
