    Cliché is the perfect word for Secondhand Lions, nothing in it seems new or fresh, it feels like we know what is going to happen next because it's just like any other film. It's one of those films that try to both make you laugh through its gags and to move you through some sentimental scenes accompanied by an emotional music score, but, unfortunately, I felt that Tim McCanlies did not use the right tools to move me, even thouh…

    I appreciate the deep magical realist component to this film, in fact, it is what seems to have drawn me to returning to the film so many years after its release, however, the closing portions of this film are simply too far reaching to work. Indeed, what should work as a stroke of delightful absurdism flails to even work on a conceptually illogical level.

    My family has two film's which are pretty much claimed the joint family favorites. We've watched these films at least twenty times each. These films are O Brother, Where Art Thou and Secondhand Lions. In the case of O Brother, that's a clearly great film, made by some incredible filmmakers, the Coen brothers.

    So, during this rewatch, armed with my gathered…

    Robert Duvall and Michael Caine are two brothers who decide to spend their last days at their farm shooting at fish and salesmen when suddenly a teenage boy (Haley Joel Osment) is forced to stay with them. It’s not long before the great-Uncles are swapping stories, acting quirky and delivering sage advice to their young nephew.

    The film’s a bit rough around the edges, but the charm is abundant and aplenty. Duvall, Caine and Osment are aces and a true joy to watch.

    One of the best films I've ever had the pleasure of viewing.

    A funny, tragic, quirky and heart warming story for all to enjoy.

    Próbál meseszerű lenni, és a történet szép is lehetett volna, de a karakterek nem voltak kidolgozottak, és a történet végül nekem kicsit szedett-vetett lett.

    Easily forgettable, melodramatically incompetent and pretentiously nostalgic "family" garbage that demands audiences to stay away... Very away.

    49/100
