Hi; I enjoyed this movie (more than the crap on the tube this season); I even "suspended disbelief" once or twice. This might not be the best showcase for any of the main actors talents. We know what is about to happen at every turn, and yet this film feels as comfortable as a well worn pair of shoes, the ones that you only wear to cut the grass or do your bar-B-Quing, the ones that despite your wife's protestations, remain hidden away, awaiting that next perfect summers day.
Nice endearing characters, some good ol' fashioned slapstick, a few good laughs and Willie Nelson; what could be better.
Don't expect much, just make some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the film.
