Movie Review: A Walk in the Woods **
A better name for this movie would be A Snooze in the Woods.
I'm sure someone could write a script that would be a unique twist on two old guys having an adventure in the woods, but it's not the guys who wrote this one. There's nothing new here but there's a lot of borrowing from other films.
This is Wild meets Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid meets Sideways meets Dumb and Dumber.
I give it two stars; one for the scenery and one for Redford's hair.
Two stars out of five for A Walk in the Woods.
