Let's Go Hiking in the Colorado Wilderness....Right
11 December 2017 | by zyxnixSee all my reviews

Ever see two people together and you think, "They just don't look right together." That is our lead characters. Kimberly Williams-Paisley is totally a hot babe in a Sandra Bullock in her prime kind of way. She carries the movie. But this Mulrobey guy is tough to look at when he is on screen. He has something like John Kerry hair...way to thick and big. Danny Glover...well, is Danny Glover. If you want to see his best work, I recommend..The Saint of Fort Washington. I can live with the script. Wasn't that bad.
