->--'''Hub''' (Robert Duvall)

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?

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Creator/MichaelCaine actually manages to hold a passable rendering of a Southern American drawl for most of the film. But there are moments his natural Cockney shows through.

* BetrayalByInaction: When Mae brings Stan to the [=McCann=] farm in an effort to try and turn Walter against Garth and Hub and find their money, Stan takes him off for a "man-to-man talk". Mae just turns away while Stan takes her son behind the barn and tries to beat information out of him. A later conversation indicates she was aware of his abusive tendencies already.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: When going after Jasmine the Lion because they think she's mauling Walter, the group includes a young girl who clearly won't be able to handle the recoil of the shotgun she's holding and two boys who aren't big enough to handle a shotgun each so the bigger one holds grip while the smaller one supports the barrel.
