Great Movie

I just saw the movie Secondhand Lions with Michael Cain, Robert Duval and Haley Joel Osment. What a great movie, great story, great acting, great directing.

It's about a kid whose mom is an expert at lying and in picking real lousy guys to go out with. One summer she leaves him with his two old uncles who are rumored to be filthy rich from being bank robbers in the 20's and 30's. They aren't exactly overjoyed at having a wussy kid around the place. Their main sport is shooting at salesmen who stop by trying to get them to spend some of their millions on that latest and greatest ... whatever.

Over the course of the movie the uncles have an effect on the kid and the kid has an effect on the uncles and that's all I'm tellin' ya. To find out more see it for yourself.
