    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,…

    My best friend made me sit down and watch this movie, and within ten minutes of it, I fell in love. It's a story of adventure, for sure, and though it may not seem that way at first, you're in for a treat. It's an incredible film, and I would definitely watch it again!

    This really is pretty good. Part adventure story, part coming-of-age story, it's a real pleasure to watch Duvall and Caine work their magic. I could almost do without the tacked-on ending however.

    Dentro de lo redundante es bastante buena. Buenas actuaciones y una historia sencilla, repetida pero bien hecha. Un drama con toques de comedia que sabe llegar a la gente.

    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…
