Title Year Length (Minutes) MPAA Rating My Rating
King of California 2007 PG-13 3.5 out of 5 ducks
Miranda, 16, dropped of high school two years ago to support herself and pay the bills when dad Charlie ended up being locked into a mental institution. He's now out, and talking endless of tracking down the lost treasure of one of the Spanish missionaries that wandered around their neck of the woods (in Santa Clarita, California) in 1624, presumably hiding his gold coins and items in an underground cave. (Why would a missionary have coins? It's petty cash, of course...) Miranda is convinced he's still as nuts as when he left two years earlier, though when he takes her out and they find a stray coin, marked with the year 1624, she's less skeptical. They undertake the adventure wandering the countryside, no longer a wild land but covered in subdivision homes, golf courses, and the bane of their search: Costco. There, Charlie discovers the location he believes the underground cave is, plum square under a pallet of merchandise. With the help of Charlie's friend Pepper, the break in, disable the alarm, and use Costco merchandise (kinda) to jack-hammer through the floor, dig to a wooden trap door, then scuba dive into the tunnel. As Charlie is down there, the cops arrive, and Miranda, holding the rope leading to Charlie, is knocked out when they tug-of-war over the rope. Charlie returns with some gold coins, hides them, ties up Miranda (so she's not blamed for any of this), and leads deputies to the hole, diving in. In a voiceover, Miranda explains the cops never found Charlie, and we see him swimming under the water, ditching the tank and swimming toward a bright light (an opening out?). Miranda takes her father's directions, buys a dishwasher, they load it in her car, and at the beach she discovers it's the one Charlie hid the gold in. As she's there, a group of naked Chinese immigrants Charlie babbled about when he left the mental hospital washes up on shores and gets dressed; Miranda drives off. Moving film reel
