Second-Hand Lions

Big Lots had a huge display of marked-down movies the other day, and I bought Second-Hand Lions for a dollar.  I'd never seen it, and I wanted to.  People whose opinions of movies I respected had recommended it to me.  (That's almost the only reason I ever watch a new movie.)  (Reviews mean nothing to me.)
A few minutes ago, I finished watching it.  It was fantastic.
Usually, I am too upset by any movie that features a selfish,  skanky mother to even enjoy the film, but even though my blood pressure rose while I sat in my kitchen passing judgement on her, the two eccentric uncles more than made up for her shortcomings, and that's really all she had.  No redeeming characteristics whatsoever, just skanky shortcomings.
So she made one positive decision at the end.  It was the only one she ever made.
But I digress.
I loved the two uncles and I wish they'd been mine.  I loved the lion.  I loved the kid.  I loved Jasmine.  I loved the sheik's grandson. 
You can buy this movie at Big Lots now, cheaper than you can rent it.  Besides, it's one you'll want to keep so you can re-watch it. 
Second-Hand Lions.  What wondrous quality. . . .
I recommend it to you all, most highly.
