    Secondhand Lions boasts just enough charm to make it an enjoyable, innocent and sometimes exhilarating family film. The chemistry between the lead trio is convincing and feels natural, the story is fairly unique and enjoyable albeit a little cliche when it comes to the two uncles adventures being shown via Michael Caine's anecdotes. In the end, Secondhand Lions is a very entertaining film that delivers on laughs, entertainment, good performances, likable characters and fun story.

    Michael Caine is one of those actors who shouldn't do accents. However implausible it might seem that two brothers (Duval and Caine) have completely different accents, it would be preferable to Caine attempting to come from somewhere other than his native land (in this case, Texas). That said, this is light fare, and unsentimental enough for what it is that it remains inoffensive, if somewhat forgettable, and it provided some light relief on a dull rainy Tuesday night. Duval is always watchable.

    Well-acted, charming coming-of-age story.

    Family orientated films are often overly-sentimental or schmaltzy affairs. Secondhand Lions is both, but has the charm of Robert Duvall, Michael Caine, and that very cute kid from A.I and The Sixth Sense to help nullify the sickly-sweet concoction of tall-tales and nostalgia. A film about two old codgers who end up raising a precocious young 14 year old and shaping him into a man of substance, this ticks all the boxes for a family drama. Narrating their life-stories of…

    It is a fun film for the whole family! Caine sounded weird when he spoke.

    Michael Caine's dodgy American accent aside, this is a fine old romp with two elderly brothers (Caine and Robert Duvall), who spend their days on their porch shooting at anything that passes, having to suddenly to take on the care of their nephew (Haley Joel Osment).

    Abandoned by his feckless mother and resented by the brothers' other relations, a nasty couple and their children (a bit like the no-neck monsters of Cat and a Hot Tin Roof), he suddenly breaks…

    Probably 10 years ago when I would've been that's kid age in the poster...I could have liked this film, but not right now, somehow!
    But still I finished the movie in one go, so something must have been right in it...it was the duo Micheal Caine and Robert Duvall.

    This is a great little story about a boy who is dumped on 2 eccentric uncles by his flighty mother. Although neither he or the uncles like the arrangement, time brings them closer together in ways that none of them new they needed. The boy, never having a good male role model before, learns about love, loyalty, honor, and all the true essential qualities it takes to make a good man. His uncles have stories of great adventures that they undertook in their youth, and each is a fun ride with a poignant message. This is a super family movie. I've enjoyed watching it several times.

    A pleasant, harmless, inoffensive, and wholly unmemorable little movie.

    Alas, despite the two amazing acting dinosaurs at the helm, I found this to be a rather tedious, formulaic coming-of-age story, which felt much more like a Disney-straight-for-TV production. Mind you, that is not necessarily a bad thing, but it still felt a bit clumsy in its direction. I am not a big fan of flashbacks, they always look cheap and that is what they are, except when the whole film is structured around the past narrative (An American Quilt,…
