Quotes

Squirrel: Beats me why women fall for some men instead of others.
Sue Ann: I bet you got a lot of girlfriends, huh?
Squirrel: Yeah, right.
Sue Ann: Well, I'll bet pretty soon some girl's gonna' come along, see how nice you are and chase after you 'til you marry her.
Squirrel: No, ma'am. It don't work like that. See, women don't chase after nice guys. They chase after guys like HIM and try to turn 'em into nice guys. It doesn't work.

Guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
16 March 2006 | by (Sandy, UT) – See all my reviews

I was bored one Sunday morning in August 2004 and I was surfing through the channels and I stumbled on this movie that was on one of the premium channels. I was getting more and more into it as the plot was going. My favorite character is Squirrel played by Ethan Embry. After seeing it on TV, I just had to buy it on DVD and I have showed this movie to many of my friends and they love it! It was amazing to see that the director of this movie Tim McCanlies directed Secondhand Lions. This movie shows what true friendship really is and what small town life is about. I recommend this movie to everyone and it is great for the whole family to watch.
