SECONDHAND LIONS (article first published : 2007-07-4)

Michael Caine, Robert Duvall, Haley Joel Osment, Kyra Sedgwick and Josh Lucas appear on M-Net in the comedy drama Secondhand Lions directed by Tim McCanlies.

Screen veterans Michael Caine and Robert Duvall shine as two cantankerous old codgers who take their troubled nephew (Haley Joel Osment of The Sixth Sense fame) under their wing, telling him wonderful and often far-fetched stories about their past. Are they all true? The boyís mother seems to think one particular story, involving a hidden fortune, may be true. This is why she offloaded Walter on Garth and Hub in the first place. If she canít find herself a rich husband, perhaps Walter will find her a fortune!

Walter is, at first, totally put out. His uncles donít have a TV, computer or any mod cons, and their idea of fun is talking potshots at travelling salesmen, and, of course, telling tall stories. But what fabulous stories they are!
