Secondhand Lions - 5

A popular and sentimental film about two old men (Michael Caine and Robert Duvall) who live on a plot of land in the middle of nowhere, and they like it fine that way. Their relatives, who happen to know that they have millions of dollars stashed somewhere, are on the prowl to inherit. Walter (Haley Joel Osment), a nephew is left with his two uncles by his mother in hopes that he will find the money. He soon adjust and befriends them, hearing their tales of love, loss, and adventure. He also teaches them a few things while helping them spend some of there cash on their retirement. In the end, Walter sees the two men as his role model for living a life caring for others, and learning to be trustworthy by telling the truth. Again, sort of on the sentimental side, but there are a few good laughs and adventure along the way.
