PG | | Comedy, Drama, Family
A coming-of-age story about a shy, young boy sent by his irresponsible mother to spend the summer with his wealthy, eccentric uncles in Texas.
EASTER EGG: On the DVD Special Features menu, go to "On The Set with Secondhand Lions" and then press left. A short bloopers reel is shown with Haley Joel Osment and Nicky Katt in the barn.
Adult Walter: Yes.
Sheriff: This is Sheriff Brady. I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. It's about your uncles.
At Saratoga Springs, Canada geese are shown landing. Instead of the distinctive "honk" of a goose, we hear ducks quacking.
During the end credits, the adult Walter's cartoons depict a variety of adventures.
For the UK cinema release, the distributors requested a PG certificate from the BBFC and 21 secs of footage was cut to remove shots of flick knives and violence. DVD releases were upgraded to a 12 certificate and the cuts were reinstated.
