If you are looking for a gentle film that makes you feel good - then I don't think you could do much better than watching this film. Definitely on my top 10 for this category.
The basic background to the story is well trodden with a Son dragging his mourning father away from the dark journey into depression that he is about to begin. This he does by literally dragging him on the 'fishing trip of a lifetime' that the father originally promised the son in his boy-hood.
It isn't just the re-bonding that takes place. It's also the re-kindling of the gentle mischief within the character played by Paul Hogan (Charlie) and the gradual revelation of the past sorrow that Shane Jacobson's character (Boots) has stoically borne. You'll laugh out loud at the humorous scenes and feel sadness in others. The jokes are not new but played with a believable realism by both main actors.
You'll know where the story is going but you'll love the characters they meet on the way and be glad for them that they get there without real mishap.
