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

    One of those movies I saw bits of as a kid. This movie was fantastic! So funny, emotional, and just plain good. Great cast as well. I love Robert Duvall and Michael Caine and they were perfect as two Texas brothers with an extraordinary past. So good.

    Honestly one of the great films. You know the kind that you walk away from with a little nugget of truth you carry for the rest of your life.
    "Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want…

    This movie existed somewhere waaaay back in my memory, having seen it on a plane of all places. The second round wasn't anything mindblowing but it warmed the appropriate parts of my cold-dead heart.

    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.

    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…
