I hadn’t seen Secondhand Lions before last night (nor heard of it, I don’t think)…
But we watches last night. LOVED it.
They seriously could have shot two hours of Robert Duvall’s and Michael Caine’s characters warding off salesmen with their shotguns from their front porch and it STILL would have been great. Really. Actually, Robert Duvall alone doing that would have been great. But they added Michael Caine (with a slight Texas accent, even!) and a story that in parts was reminiscent of The Princess Bride.
If your friends have also totally let you down by not telling you about this movie, publicly shame them, then go get the movie. Or the other way around…that works too.
