Bury Me in Niagra AKA in the USA as Ghost Mom has two notable actors-- Jean Stapleton and Geraint Wyn Davies ( Nick Knight of "Forever Knight"). GWD's characer is a doctor who has an intrusive mother ( Stapleton). When she dies she holds a "lucky pebble", ( a disguised mystical ruby) and her ghost insists that her body be buried in Niagra. Road trip via ice cream truck, pursued by Chinese gangsters who want the ruby, the son finally meets his father. GWD hams it up in various scenes and while the movie lacks some credibility at times, it is a comedy in the same vein as the Hope and Cosby road trip movies. Being a GWD fan I liked to see him in a comedic role as Nick Knight was mainly too angsty.

OK -- I admit that I originally only bought this video because I wanted to see Geriant Wyn Davies in something other than Forever Knight.
After watching the video, however, I can definitely recommend this to just about anyone. The movie is light-hearted fun. Jean Stapleton is perfect as the mother who doesn't know when to let go.
The alternate title of "Ghost Mom" would make more sense than the "Bury Me in Niagara" title does. Regardless of what it is called, watch the movie and enjoy yourself for 1½ hours.

I watched this online. I've always liked Jean Stapleton. She was good as were several others in the cast. But it is one of the worst made movies I've ever seen. The weak, weak story might have been okay as a Saturday morning cartoon in the 70's. Don't waste your time.

Jean Stapleton was great as well as some of the other actors. I usually enjoy Canadian productions....the story line is not bad, but the way it was written was corny. I am neither better nor worse for watching it. One could choose something else to occupy your time, however.

I found the DVD in good quality. However I did not like the organization of the menu. After some playing around I got it to run as it did not start immediately as I am used to by DVDs. The film itself is a nice spoof on everything from gangster theft to mother-son conflict. It's a one off comedy that some may enjoy.

If you've never watched it I highly recommend you purchasing a copy and see for yourself how great it is.
