A marginally decent family film, but I certainly wouldn't watch it again without a kid in the room. Osment's ham-handed performance makes a convincing argument as to why child actors should not be elligible for Oscar nominations, showing his genius in "Sixth Sense" had to be a fluke.

This was actually very good. Performances are great all-around, not to be surprising, since Michael Caine and Robert Duvall always bring their game out. Haley Joel Osment went against the new image he was creating as a family actor by portraying a character, a real character, with motivations and intentions, in a family film. It was wonderful. I expect great things from him in the future. As a film, the movie had me enrapt in its side stories and tales, along with bringing about a wonderful message of hopes and dreams coming true to the most unexpected people.

Although Caine can't do an American accent to save his life, he's cute as one of the old eccentric uncles. Duvall is good as always. Cute story. Good family show.

Sincerity Shows

A fantastic coming-of-age movie. Truly a family film: there's no foul language, no gore, and no sex. Just action, adventure, comedy, and emotion. Walter, played by Osment, finds out what a family really is. The great uncles, Hub and Garth ( Robert Duvall, Sir Michael Caine ), are two older men who feel they've passed their prime. This changes a bit when Walter comes in the picture as Hub and Garth have heart- teach this boy what he needs to know about love, honor, courage and respect. The courage symbolism can be seen when they get a "used " lion and also when Walter jumps out of the car towards the end to go back. ( I won't say anymore-No spoiler.) All the actors were fantastic. In their prime, Caine, Osment and Duvall show us something that needs to be appreciated more often-sensitivity...
