2003 M Contains low level violence.

It's the summer of 1960 and introverted 14 year old, Walter, is unceremoniously dumped by his single mother, Mae, at the Texan farm of eccentric great uncles, Hub and Garth. Walter has never met them before, but legend has it, they were bank robbers, mafia hitmen - even Nazi war criminals. Whatever their past, one rumour is the most compelling to Mae: Hub and Garth have lots of money stashed away. So find the dough, she commands. But that is the least of Walters' worries. Hub and Garth aren't exactly the welcoming types and suddenly it looks like it's going to be a long, hard Summer. That is, until Walter stumbles upon a photo in an old trunk of a beautiful, exotic woman. And when he confronts Garth about it, his uncle reveals a past of incredibly exciting and daring experiences. True or not, Walter soon finds himself discovering his own sense of adventure, his own kind of happiness and life suddenly looks promising after all.

A great movie that the whole family can watch. Terrific cast of characters and lots of fun antics from the two Uncles. A vastly under-rated, feel good family entertainment.

My 8 year old daughter and I really enjoyed this movie. While the characters are overly cliched, the story was compelling enough to capture our attention and the performances fantastic enough to capture our hearts. A great family movie!
