3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Bonnie Way on Jan. 20 2011
I loved this movie. It was hilarious and yet deeply moving at the same time--a great family story about a boy finding a place where he belongs and two old men finding something meaningful in their retirement. The uncle's story is provided in small chunks, as one uncle tells his nephew about their past. Parts of the video were hilarious and all of it was clean and very family-friendly.

Format: DVD
Walter (Haley Joe Osment) an introverted kid gets to stay with his two eccentric great-uncles, Garth (Michael Caine) and Hub (Robert Duvall.) While there He is told of their robust adventures and how they came to be there and rich. However everyone else tells a different story. He comes to understand them and some of life through several events. One of those events is befriending an over the hill lion which just may represent a couple of uncles.

It is not so much the bonding formula of the story as the way the tail of exotic places and heroic acts is intertwined with everyday life. I think of stories my own parents and grand parent told of such things as encounters with Poncho Via in Mexico where they sold him horses and were invited to leave.

It is not so much the stories as the goodness of man that was being portrayed, moving back and forth in time, with a few adjustments to history, made you feel that they were your great-uncles who could believe such tales. And yet...

If you find that this movie moved you then it is time to try two others that are similar. "Dust" (2001) with Joseph Fiennes and David Wenham. "Little Buddha" (1993) with Keanu Reeves.

This well written and well cast movie simply makes for a wonderful evening at home. It has lots of laughs and suspense and the story is based on two old guys and a young boy and what really living a life worth living is all about. I would recommend it for family viewing with guidance for the very young.

What a wonderful story... Fabulous actors humanize the story of daring youth abilities to autumn years, allowing a few kinks from others conjuring greed. A young boy learning life from elderly uncles, profound lessons of respect and gratitude... It's a keeper... Thank you Amazon for your steadfastness in finding me a copy of this DVD.
