This movie focuses on the caring relationship
that develops between a boy abandoned by his flighty mother and
two old codger grand uncles.
This movie is bound to please the young
and old alike with something for the whole family, like flashbacks
of adventures of the two uncles in Africa involved with the foreign
legion, a beautiful princess, a jealous sheik and lots of swashbuckling
over hoards of treasure.
Academy Award winning actors Michael Caine
and Robert Duvall are simply a pleasure to watch and keep things
a bit above the ordinary.
Just a real crowd-pleaser in the most old
Secondhand Lions is
a light family film with an excellent cast about growing up and
It's about the difference between truth
and fable and which is better to believe.
Sweet, but not cloying and sentimental
without being preachy, it shows that some of life's lessons are
hard to forget and that you don't have to give up the past to
live for today.
This movie has a simple and touching coming-of-age
story that has enough charm and oddness to grab the attention
and imagination of kids and adults alike.
It's a funny fantasy, live-action family
film with a big heart.
