Secondhand Lions

Secondhand Lions ★★ 2003 (PG)

Timid Walter (Osment) is left with his eccentric uncles Hub (Duvall) and Garth (Caine) by his husband-seeking flaky mom Mae (Sedgewick). Finding no TV when he arrives, Walter becomes fasci nated by the uncles' tales of an adventu rous past, which are told in flashback in B action movie style. Alternately syrupy and quirky, pic tries too much to be everything to everybody, and may not appeal to younger, jaded viewers. Their parents and grandparents, nostalgic for this kind of wholesome family entertainment, will be more receptive. Duvall and Caine make up for many of the flaws, but Osment doesn't register as strongly as hoped in his first postchild star role. 107m/C VHS, DVD, UMD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
