Interesting fast paced adventure about young people growing up, and some adults that do not. It would have been even better if they had more wildlife (such as gators) in the film's nature scenes.

Stumbled on this movie randomly and was totally enthralled by its simple yet captivating story.

the boys were def the best part of this movie, they were just great little actors. I liked the story and Matthew is always good (even though he tends to play the southern boys well and can always take his shirt off!) lol

If you liked "Winter's Bone," you'll love this film!

The adult characters are trivial and this leaves us with the boys and the usual coming-of-age story we’ve seen many times in other films.

I almost felt as if I were watching a movie set in a foreign county due to the accents, dialect, natural setting, and customs of Arkansas displayed in this film - that atmosphere was one of my favorite things about the film. I agree with many other commentators that that actors playing the 2 young boys (whose character names were Neckbone and Ellis) were fantastic and drew me in more than Reese Witherspoon or Matthew McCounaughey's roles.

I also really enjoyed seeing Sam Shephard on screen again - have not seen him in anything for along time!

I was a little put off by the Hollywood ending. However, I would definitely watch it again.
