The Meeksville Ghost is a 2001 family-friendly movie directed by David Lister and starring Judge Reinhold, Tanja Reichert, and Todd Jensen. It is an intriguing and heartwarming tale about David and Hannah, a father and daughter, who move to a quaint small town called Meeksville to start a new life after the sudden death of their wife and mother.

As soon as they arrive, they are warmly welcomed by the town's friendly residents, except for one who seems to have a problem with them. As they settle into their new home, strange things begin happening, and they discover that their house is haunted by the ghost of an old man who had previously lived there.

David, a rational skeptic, does not believe in ghosts and tries to find logical explanations for everything. He refuses to accept that the ghost of the old man, who appears to be nice and friendly, has anything to do with the strange occurrences in the house. However, his daughter, Hannah, who has always had an interest in the paranormal, is excited about the ghostly presence and wants to know more.

As they explore the town, they learn that the ghost is not just any ordinary ghost but the town's founder, a respectable man named Henry Meeks, who had died 150 years ago. They also discover that Henry had hidden his fortune somewhere in the town, and the treasure had yet to be found. The ghost of Henry tells them that the treasure belongs to the town and that he would like them to find it before evil forces can.

David and Hannah team up with the town's mayor, who is also a historian, and other residents to search for the treasure. However, they soon discover that they are not the only ones searching for it. They have to compete with two greedy men who want to find the treasure for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.

The movie is well-written, and the story is engaging, with some unexpected twists and turns. The cast does a great job, with Judge Reinhold bringing his usual charm and humor to his role as the skeptical father who gradually becomes more open-minded. Tanja Reichert gives a good performance as Hannah, the curious daughter, and Todd Jensen deserves a special mention for his portrayal of the ghost Henry, which is delightful and charming.
