A perfect family movie, "Secondhand Lions" is rich with sweetness and heart.

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.

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 …
