3/4

PG - for thematic material, language and action violence
Starring Michael Caine, Robert Duvall, Haley Joel Osment, Kyra Sedgwick, Nicky Katt, Josh Lucas
Director(s) Tim McCanlies

Overview from movies.go.com:
Michael Caine and Robert Duvall play the eccentric and wealthy great-uncles of a shy young teenager (Haley Joel Osment). The men care for him over a summer in Texas during the 1960s, when his unreliable mother (Kyra Sedgwick) drops him off, regaling the boy with unbelievable and impressive stories of their past, seen in flashbacks.

Personal Critique:
Adorable. I think that Osment does an excellent job at making you feel the pain of his young life and the uncles are crazily funny and cute. DEFINITELY a feel-good movie with lots of humorous sections thrown in. While it was not necessarily recommended by many of the critics, I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a movie that will just make them feel wonderful. Very charming and delightful all the way to the end.

Interesting:

"Have you ever seen 'Secondhand Lions' with Robert Duvall?" [Jason Giambi] asked. "You should. That's a good one. I'm bringing it." [When speaking of tapes bringing to Tokoyo]
