Peter Hartlaub – San Francisco Chronicle
This same movie will be made in the year 2051 starring Matt Damon and Matthew McConaughey as former sports teammates carrying out a dying wish, old college friends hitchhiking across America the way they did in the 1990s, or bank robbers making one last heist. You’ll watch not because it’s a great movie, but because it’s Damon and McConaughey and they’re your guys.
Are Robert Redford and Nick Nolte your guys? The answer to that question is the difference between this movie bringing you great enjoyment and comfort, or just being a series of warm moments to tolerate between the occasional chuckle.
