I start to wonder whether there is a wind-down period in an actor’s career. That point when making inane movies is the topping on a legacy that has spanned decades. Watching this trailer with acting legends Robert Redford, Nick Nolte and Emma Thompson has me thinking just that. I suppose there is space for a ‘Bucket List‘ type movie, I mean Jack Nickelson and Morgan Freeman did it so why not
So in this tale of bonding at the cusp of not being able to remember one’s youth Redford’s character decides to hike the 3500 km Appalachian Trail with his estranged buddy Nolte… What follows is hilarity for your parents and possible grandparents of a very generic kind. Have a look and see what you think.
I am sure I’ll see it but it lacks a certain feeling that dark comedy/drama The Judge had and seems to balance precariously on the ridge of the almost slapstick. Expect the hike to begin 2 September.
