Greg and I own this movie and have watched it a few times in the last several years. We pulled it out again just the other night to watch it again. It’s one that you can literally watch over and over again and get something different from it each time. It’s the story of a boy who is “dropped off” to live with his two great uncles, played by screen legends, Robert Duvall and Michael Caine. As the story unfolds – so the amazing lives of these two older gentlemen and their heroic tales living 40 years in another country. It is interwoven with adventure and morality, with humor and timeless values. If you haven’t seen it – I highly recommend it not only for your children to watch with you – but for you to watch by yourselves. You will especially love the bar fight scene and “the speech” that Robert Duvall’s character gives to all young men 🙂 And the ending? My favorite part!
When was the last time you ever did something heroic in your life? Did you ever want a lion for a pet?
Enjoy this music clip from the movie – written by the great Patrick Doyle.
