"The kid gets everything - bury us by the damn lion!" "Look - I think she's smilin`." "Well, she died like a real lion. Defending her cub." "Well, the best we can figure out, they must of been trying to fly that old prop plane upside down through the barn."......If you want to know what the above quotes are all about, SEE THIS MOVIE! P.S: Nobody hunts the second-hand lion(ess). But a herd of brats and snotty in-laws get a BIG surprise (and did you know there`s such a thing as Lion Chow? There Is In THIS Movie!) ENJOY!
5 stars!! Great story, about REAL men - not politically correct. Duvall and Caine give wonderful, believable performances; story is hilarious at times. Scene with young punks in saloon is priceless. A great family film the kids should see.
EXCELLENT feel-good, well-acted, delightful cast movie. I highly recommend it.
Great acting from two old hands (bad pun) and a young boy (15 when he made the movie acting true to type), a bit of mystery, bunches of humour and a whole lot of whimsy make for a really enjoyable couple of hours. As Mikey said, "Try it; you'll like it."
VERY GOOD 2003 film with sophisticated aging plot - and more written by Tim McCanlies.
There is significant inner-outer/back and forth memory aspects as it mixes youth and old age 'growing up'.
Might have to see it a couple times for me to pick up all the cinematic shenanigans...
Two aging actors reminiscent of the heady days when movies included acting, plot, suspense, smiles.... a worthy movie, a fun one, and a crying shame there aren't 50 years more coming from these two guys.
Excellent film! Great performances by all of the cast. Wonderful film to enjoy with children and for adults also.
charming movie...wouldnt recommend it for children (gunplay, get lion so they can shoot it, mother dumps son, etc).
Think its more for adults who are willing to leave their "maturity" behind and indulge in some whimsy
Heartwarming ,with plenty of twists and adventure thrown in along the way. Very enjoyable film for all ages.
This movie was so amazing. Probably one of my favorite movies of all time, I was laughing and sobbing through the whole thing. The craziness of the whole thing really made it loveable and memorable. If it wasn't for all the language, this would be the best family movie of all time. I would definitely recommend it.
Iaw this movie when i was younger funny but at the same time realistict-thestory did leave an impact-puttng it on hold because i would love to see i again!
One of the best movies ever. Great actors. Wonderful, understated humour. Good fun.
I got this for our family on a recommendation from a friend. However, it didn't hold interest for my five year old. It was a fabulous story and there were a lot of elements that my seven year old enjoyed. However there were a few incidents with language that made me hesitate with my children. Better for slightly older children.
I loved it! Fabulous performances all round. Great story. It reminded me of the princess bride.
An awsome movie. Funny, and touching story about a boy who is left with his 2 "mad" uncles. it may seem wierd but it"s a greatstory the whole family can watch! :)
This movie is just a lot of good natured fun. Michael Caine and Robert Duvall both turn in fine performances.
