A fun hiking movie?
1 November 2005 | by bumbleb_79See all my reviews

THIS IS NOT A DOCUMENTARY!!! I thought it was going to be one when I saw it, but it's not. It is a great story that makes hiking interesting. The love story feels right, and it goes its own direction and isn't forced to fit into some Hollywood mold. I think the characters end up making the right choices for themselves at the end, and not what they're supposed to do in a movie. And it's funny- The other guy ought to be on TV. I didn't know that much about the Apalachian trail before I saw it, and I learned a lot about it. I don't know if I want to hike it, but it seems like a great experience for those that do. AWESOME! Thumbs Up!
