A comedic and touching family film about a shy boy who finds shy boy who finds himself spending the summer with a pair of cranky and eccentric great-uncles have a mysterious and secret past.

"Schmaltzy? Absolutely. But in the hands of three exceptional actors, Secondhand Lions is totally entertaining and heartwarming. I'm adding it to my best-of-year list.  Betty Jo Tucker, Reeltalk Movie Reviews
"Caine and Duvall are expert...  Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
Set in Texas in the 1950s, SECONDHAND LIONS tells the touching story of Walter (Haley Joel Osment), a shy teenager sent to stay with two estranged uncles for the summer. Various rumors surround the two uncles (played by Robert Duvall and Michael Caine), mostly because the duo have only recently resurfaced into family life after 40 years spent carrying out misdeeds and illicit activities. The one fact about the men, of which Walter's mom is only too aware, is that they appear to be extremely wealthy, having stashed over one million dollars in cash at an undisclosed location. After initially balking at Walter's inherent shyness and nervous disposition, the two men soon warm to the child, and proceed to tell him some incredible tales of their adventures.

Director Tim McCanlies lets SECONDHAND LIONS unfold at a leisurely pace, allowing Caine and Duvall to play off each other and slowly bring Osment's character out of his shell. As all the characters become invigorated by the stories and tall tales, a neat bond is formed between them, with some touching interplay and valuable lessons in life for Osment. This is a moving coming-of-age film that the whole family can enjoy.

Expert Review Secondhand Lions - DVD Review
By: Sean O'Connell filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 11/20/2009 6:42 PM
Like a similar creature that patrols a certain Yellow Brick Road, Tim McCanlies’ Secondhand Lions is in dire need of a shot of courage. It’s scary to think of how much better this king of the jungle could’ve been had it possessed the sharp teeth of its animal namesake and took a serious bite out of the plump themes of family greed, lost love and misspent youth. What we’re left with are recycled kitten swipes taken by a family-friendly charmer that’s content to coast by on the casting coup of landing Michael Caine and Robert Duvall under one cinematic roof....read the full review
