Sailing into uncharted waters with three great actors ............
24 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like reading a good book before a roaring fire, "The Golden Boys" is that type of movie. Charming and relaxing, the movie takes it's time to let you really get to know the three retired sea captains. David Carradine, Rip Torn, and Bruce Dern, all are terrific, and depicting the 1905 Cape Cod location with great realistic photography adds to the enjoyment. My only nitpick with this film is regarding the title. In my opinion, "The Golden Boys" sounds more like a sitcom than a feature film about three cantankerous old seaman. Nevertheless, if you enjoy quiet movies, that take their time with the story, this is a must see.
