Quotes

Vic Edwards: You wanna know I needed to come to knoxville, I needed to say goodbye, Goodbye to the town that made me who Iam, Goodbye to the trees I climbed as a kid, Goodbye to the school that tought me how to break the rules, and the streets I wondered late at night, the hidden places that I left all my secrets, The town where I made so many many mistakes, and now its time for one last goodbye.

Nice Film
6 April 2018 | by Sober-FriendSee all my reviews

Burt Reynolds plays a version of himself (he even interacts with his old movies) and the film delivers not only huge laughs but also has an emotional center that at times make you hate then love the main character in the span of a few seconds.

In this film an older actor is invited to a film festival to pick up his life achievement award. This prompts him to do some serious soul searching. Along the way he realizes how lucky he was and most of see the errors of his life.

Well worth seeing.
