A Walk in the Woods
What do bros (in this case, Robert Redford) do once they get old? In A Walk in the Woods, they get sick of attending funerals, decide to out-hike Death on the Appalachian Trail, and tell the old lady (Emma Thompson) where she can stick her objections to stupidly risking one's life. Then they hook up with a bro from back in the day (a positively Falstaffian Nick Nolte) and think back on all the sweet tail they once scored while they take in the scenery. Now and then, they pause to drop some cool trivia about chestnut trees, rock formations, and stars and shit. Because they're bros, be assured of frequent halfhearted insults, some heartfelt declarations of debrotion, and one or two shenanigans involving the opposite sex. Plus lots of old guy/fat guy pratfallery. A waste of stars, scenery, and setup, directed by Ken Kwapis. 2015.
