Interesting study of growing old. Good characters.

A strangely moving portrait of two obnoxious yet lovable old men. I saw it "by accident" but it keeps haunting me. Excellent acting as should be expected from those two gentlemen.

Roger Ebert's review of this film was so incredibly insightful. But then, it's a real critique by a real film critic. Sad that the brilliance of this film was lost on so many others who borrow that title.

Bittersweet yet cheeky and charming, 'Wrestling Ernest Hemingway' is a fun little gem. Of course, the key drive here is the unlikely but effective pairing of Harris and Duvall, who having play off each other really well and have a ball as two very different yet irascible friends.

My Favorite Film Is 1941's Citizen Kane.

Randa Haines' sappy, rather dull melodrama about the friendship between two eccentric old men is mostly a showcase for its stars, Robert Duvall and Richard Harris.
September 30, 2012
My wife got me to watch this one, and it really surprised me. It made for compelling viewing. A realistic portrayal of damaged people leading lives as best they can. I found the scene between Francis and his landlord at her dining table particularly moving.
July 27, 2012
Loved it! Fantastic acting by Duvall, Harris, Mclain and Bullock! Telling a story of loneliness and friendship! Confirmed my need to grow old with true friends.
December 22, 2010
AWESOME FILM!!! Look at this cast:
Robert Duvall, Richard Harris, Shirley MacLain, Sandra Bullock. . . . this movie is just too good to be true - top notch story, acting, and soundtrack, and you'll never forget these performances.

cute old-guy movie... reminds me of "grumpy old men".
August 30, 2010
Rather slow paced comedy/drama with 2 super lead roles in Richard Harris(especially,who stands out from the rest) as an Irish immigrant drunk & retired Navy officer sent to a basic retirement appartment in the sweltering heat of Florida and Robert Duvall an retired Cuban tee-total straight laced barber who find friendship.
Absolutely 1 of those movies thats so easy 2 watch. Takes you on a ride with 2 virtually opposite characters at the peak of their lives.
Looks like a movie for the older generation from the cover & write up on dvd case but its far from it,Definately under-rated movie that did not have much publicity but then again Neither does a lot of our favourite films we find from websites like RT.
½ July 10, 2010
Richard Harris and Robert Duvall are just superb!
½ November 25, 2009
ik heb de film bekeken terwijl ik met een goede vriend aan het bieren was. hij was er van overtuigd dat het een geweldig film was maar na 1,5 uur kijken en pilsen bleek het toch weinig om de hakken te hebben

Beautiful film. Duvall and Harris are so wonderful as the guys, and everyone around them (esp. Sandra Bullock) make the sweetness believable.
½ December 22, 2008
What a great movie. Duvall is great bbut Harris emotes much pathos as a man trying to hold on to something of his prime. Two odd-matched friends tooling arounf Florida. The bike trip on the 4th of July is my favorite part.
September 25, 2008
Not your typical blockbuster movie but gotta say its got alota heart to it.
September 13, 2008
Richard Harris and Robert Duvall are given a lot of room to work together, it's wonderful to watch.
½ August 11, 2008
A wonderful and understated film that deserves more attention. It is a wonderful look into the world of two men navigating the aging process. It is unfortunate that it is hard to find and not on DVD.
½ June 8, 2008
One of the best movies I've seen in years, Tender, sweet, sad and a Great cast.
