Had to let a day lapse after seeing this one so I could digest what I actually thought of it!
I have to admit, was not overly enthralled while watching it. The story is very slight - Elderly Alvin (Richard Famsworth) wants to visit his estranged brother who has just recovered from a stroke and whom he hasn't seen in ten years. The only problem is, he doesn't have a lot of money and with his failing eyesight he doesn't have a licence, so Alvin decides to improvise by driving his lawnmower for six weeks. This is apparently based on a true story.
It is a Disney film, which surprised me, I think kids trying to watch this would be beside themselves with boredom - I know I certainly was at times, despite being impressed by the acting and the filming with all the shots of the country and he rode along.
I think I appreciated this one more afterwards than at the time. It is a nice little story with a good cast and message. Just don't be expecting to be overly excited while watching it. I think this is more a film that will grow on you than one you will love instantly.
