* TemptingFate: In the flashbacks, Hub and Garth arrive in France in ''[[WorldWarOne 1914]]'', but Hub convinces Garth that they'll tour the country "One step ahead of the Germans." [[spoiler: It almost works too, but see PressGanged entry above]].

In this 2003 film set in the 1960s, Walter, played by Creator/HaleyJoelOsment, is dumped off on his great uncles by his ditzy mom, who says she needs some time to herself so she can go to court reporting school. The uncles, Hub (Robert Duvall) and Garth (MichaelCaine), don't like having a 'kid' around cramping their style, but eventually warm to him, and he to them. The uncles are a little...eccentric (they fish by shooting bass with their shotguns, and spend their days chasing off traveling salesmen...with their shotguns), but time proves them to be surprisingly capable foster dads. Walter is awed by Hub's crazy ways, while Garth spins tales of their adventuring days of yore. Are any of the stories true -- including the one about the uncles sitting on a hidden stash of plundered wealth? And how did they afford to buy that lion?

* BadassGrandpa: While not technically Walter's grandfather, Hub can take on four guys a quarter of his age, unarmed and still beat them. Also various enemies of the Foreign Legion, the [[spoiler:Sheikh's army]] & [[spoiler:the Sheikh himself]].
* BadassBoast: "I'm Hub [=McCann=]. I've fought in two World Wars and countless smaller ones on three continents. I led thousands of men into battle with everything from horses and swords to artillery and tanks. I've seen the headwaters of the Nile, and tribes of natives no white man had ever seen before. I've won and lost a dozen fortunes, KILLED MANY MEN and loved only one woman with a passion a FLEA like you could never begin to understand. That's who I am. NOW, GO HOME, BOY!"

* BadassBoast: From Hub, as he's [[NeckLift choking]] a teenager.

* BullyingTheDragon: The lead-in to the bar fight scene. Hub might be old, but he's a good twice your size, and doesn't look like he's particularly interested in sharing his barbecue, ''or'' amused by your hoodlum antics. Do you ''really'' want to pick a fight with him?

* CaptainErsatz: The comics Walter draws in the end are obviously inspired by ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', though it might be a little cloudy since they were drawn in RealLife by [[BloomCounty Berke Breathed]].
