Goofs

When Willie Morris (Frankie Muniz) is in the woods with his Dad Jack (Kevin Bacon) and Skip and they hear a gunshot from hunters, Jack pushes Willie down and says to take a knee while hollering to the hunters, "Hello! Over here at 3 o'clock!" Only problem is, they don't know which direction the hunters are facing, so they have no idea where they are in relation to the hunters. Saying "3 o'clock" is totally irrelevant, only the sound of their voice gives the hunters knowledge of their direction. See more »

Some Good 'Ole Southern Charm
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's a bit of an unusual film: a modern-day movie made more for adults than kids but could be equally enjoyed by both. There are 9 "damns" and a few other profanities, but nothing earth-shaking.

It's simply the memoirs of Willie Morris, a southern boy who wound up as a famous writer and editor of Harper's Magazine. Being that magazine is pretty Liberal, you get Liberal slants in the movie (racial and anti-war sentiments) but nothing heavy-handed.

As a good story does, it makes you care about the characters, especially the lead one. In here it's "Willie" and his dog "Skip." Early shots of Skip growing up - measured in how he related to the toilet bowl - are funny. You also care about his parents and are glad when the dad (Kevin Bacon) softens his stance on things. As a guy, I appreciated just looking at Diane Lane. What a gorgeous face!

The cinematography is pure southern charm and looks great on DVD. It's not all sweetness. There are some angry moments and some sad ones, to be sure. In summary, however, a nice film.....pure and simple.
