The running time of Secondhand Lions is 1 hour 47 minutes. The TV advertisements began showing and its stated that there will be a sneak preview on 14th September in USA. According to a poster who saw SHL at Boston Film Festival said that the response is positive. 3 official reviews has been gathered at RottenTomatoes, a movie which gathered critic reviews. All the 3 of them are positive, though not very flattering. One of the review actually critisized Haley entirely. Sad

I managed to find and read the review trashing Haley's performance. I find it hard to believe that Haley could have acted so badly or so unconvincingly. I believe the reviewer even used the term " overacting " .

To be fair , I will reserve my comments and judgement about the review ( and about Haley's acting ) until I see the movie for myself, but certainly, I did not see anything wrong with Haley's acting from the trailer itself. In fact, I think that he is displaying a rare comedic flair from the few scenes featured.

I am guessing that this role is quite unlike anything that Haley has done in recent years , having been in serious roles in Sixth Sense , I Remember April, Edges of the Lord and A.I. , and he is for once acting in a role which allows him to show a lighter side of him. Perhaps this particular reviewer was not quite prepared for that !

We'll see....

Some hapless critic accused him of overacting in Bogus too. I am sure he did fine in SHL.

Hopefully, Haley will have the last laugh.

I just went to Westwood to verify the premiere date and check out the theater. They verified the date and that it is a celeb event, so Haley will be there. They will have the street blocked off, so I am taking the day off to get the best location near the celeb's. Got the dig-cam and camcorder. CAOHC.net exclusive! I need to bring my big AI booklet so he can sign it... ummm... for my daughter!
