Last Great Ride
A heartwarming family film about 2 kids, a dog and a treasure hunt. Ian (Jeffrey Sharmat) worries that summer vacation at Grandma’s will be totally lame, even with Bentley, his faithful dog, with him. When Jules (Stephanie Sawyer), the cute tomboy living next door to Grandma Mimi (Eileen Brennan), befriends him, the adventure beigns.
There is a dark, haunted mansion in which the strange reclusive Franklin Lyle (Ernest Borgnine) lives. Suspense builds as the kids meet slick Jimmy Murano (Jason Hervey) and his devious lawyer, Camile, who are trying to force Franklin off the property. They will succeed if they solve a decades-old mystery, and find a hidden treasure before anyone else. Suspense and humor abound as we follow the group’s escapades including a car chawse and a hurried attempt by Sheriff Burke(Cris Borgnine) to auction the old mansion out from under Franklin. The day is saved with the treasure discovereed, the mansion saved, romance renewed, and the crooks thwarted. Not too bad for a lame summer vacation at Grandma’s.
