Mama's Inheritance!
2 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

Mama Harper may get another chance at being rich from a dead relative. This time, it's her Uncle who played pirate and ran a boating business on the Ray River. He was quite in his prime in his nineties who was active right until his death. When the family returns from the funeral, Mama Harper is scheduled to go to the will reading on the following day. Her uncle was cremated and his ashes were scattered in the Ray River but interuppted by a jet-ski-ing woman who at least wore black as she road down the Ray River. Mama gets Petey, her Uncle's beloved bird. He annoys her and the other Harpers as well with his constant babble. When he starts talking about lucky bars of gold, Mama and the gang begin wrecking the house to find their treasure which she felt her uncle could have at least owed her. You can only imagine how this ends up.
