An average movie

Honestly, I haven't never heard of this movie before but since it was starring both Michael Caine and Robert Duvall, I was really eager to check it out. Plus, the rating here and on IMDB were pretty high so I thought it would be a treat. Unfortunately, I thought the whole thing was rather disappointing. Indeed, the plot is just so overdone : young boy has to live with distant relatives, at first they can't stand each other but, slowly, they are bonding and by the end of the movie, they only want to stay together... Not only this story arc is really predictable but it is above all just plain boring. It reminded me over 'Big Fish' in the way that you are never sure if what you see is true or not but whereas 'Big Fish' was truelly fascinating, this flick was barely inspiring. Eventually, the only redeeming feature was Michael Caine and Robert Duvall who made a mighty duo. Indeed, as usual, they were pretty awesome but they deserved a better movie than this. I know, it is just an harmless familly feature but I don't think these need to be so tedious to watch. To conclude, I make it sound as if it is really bad but it is actually a well made familly flick, I just wished they didn't follow this boring formula, and it is worth a look, just to see Michael Caine and Robert Duvall shine again.
