    I will admit Robert Duvall and Michael Caine relaxing on a porch shooting traveling salesmen is awesome, but when it's the best part of the movie you know there is a problem.
    Secondhand Lions tells of a young kid dumped by his horrible mother to live with his eccentric uncles for the summer at their Texas ranch. It sounds cliched as hell, and it beyond a doubt is, but somehow the filmmakers eliminate all potential to create a very boring…

    Secondhand Lions is among the sweetest and most charming family movies I have seen. It had terrific performances by two of the greatest actors of all time: Michael Caine and Robert Duvall, and not far behind was Haley Joel Osment who did a very good job too. It was a fabulous entertainment.

    I first saw Secondhand Lions several years ago when it played on TBS on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It was instantly familiar, tapping into influences from A Thousand and One Arabian Nights to The Princess Bride and Ol' Yeller. A story like this can be precarious, because there's a sense that we don't need anyone to reinvent the wheel. Wisely, writer/director Tim McCanlies didn't try.

    Seldom have I experienced a film that doesn't really offer anything new that manages to…

    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. But this film has not received good critical success.

    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.
