'An Unfinished Life' ...

A heapin' helpin' of happy, this movie.

It should have been called "The Bear Whisperer."

Robert Redford, looking ruggedly handsome as an aging cowboy, and Morgan Freeman, looking a little worse for the wear but yet again employing his perfect narrator voice, spend their sunset years together on Redford's ranch.

Redford is a pissed-off old man with permanent 5-o'clock shadow, and Freeman is yet again the sage.

Jennifer Lopez was better than I thought she'd be. Richard Roeper recently said that she turns in her best acting in the films nobody sees.

Josh Lucas is the typical handsome law-enforcement protector/would-be boyfriend.

It's not a bad movie. It's not a great movie. It moves along like a cowboy with nowhere special to go.

And the bear likes honey, just like Winnie the Pooh.
