An average movie

I had never heard of this movie before but since it was starring both Michael Caine and Robert Duvall, I was quite eager to check it out. Furthermore, the ratings here and on IMDb were pretty high so I thought it should pretty good. Unfortunately, to be honest, the whole thing turned out to be rather disappointing. Indeed, the plot was just so generic : a young boy has to live with some distant relatives, at first they can't stand each other but, slowly, they are bonding and by the end of the movie, they want to stay together forever... Not only this story arc was really predictable but it was above all just plain boring. It did remind me of 'Big Fish' in the way that I was never sure if what I saw was true or not but whereas 'Big Fish' was truelly fascinating, this flick was barely inspiring. Eventually, the only redeeming features were Michael Caine and Robert Duvall who made a mighty duo. Indeed, as usual, they were quite awesome but they deserved a better movie than this. I know, it was a harmless family feature but I don't think it needed to be so tedious to watch. To conclude, I make it sound as if it was really bad but it was still a decent watch, I just wished they didn't follow this boring formula. Anyway,  it is still worth a look, just to see Michael Caine and Robert Duvall shine again.
