    Synopsis


    A Walk in the Woods
    Lauded travel writer Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to America after decades abroad with the intention of retiring. However, he's drawn in by the lure of the Appalachian Trail, which he challenges himself to hike the entirety of. He's joined on his journey by a long lost friend, habitual criminal and line-stepper Katz (Nick Nolte), and the two embark on an unforgettable and challenging adventure. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      Didn't exactly meet my expectations

      I didn't read the book, so my expectations were not based on that. But, for a number of years, I've dreamed of hiking this trail myself. It didn't live up to what I was expecting for the actual hiking portion - magnificent scenery (there was some, just not enough for me) as well as some of the unexpected things I could imagine happening on a 2000+ mile hike through the wilderness, by a couple of old dudes with little to no experience at that sort of thing. I guess I was expecting more of a 'Hangover' type movie, with the Appalachian Trail as the backdrop. All in all, not a bad movie, just fell a little short of my expectations.

      Ok, two old dudes go for a walk in the woods..............if this sounds like the setup to a bad joke, be prepared for something WAY better! This picture has grace, style, humor and lots of heart, thanks in no small part to Robert Redford and Nick Nolte; their acting skills and likability make this a must see picture! Set along the majestic Appalachian Trail, this film has its OWN special effects in the scenery, we're along for a great time, and in good company with two of filmdom's top men. Highly recommended, and a nice break from blockbuster summer fare at the theater, sit back and ENJOY!

      I read the book long ago and loved it. The book is colorful and a very humorous view of hiking the trail by a couple of novices. The movie comes close, with some directorial license. I enjoyed the movie, but liked the book better. That is not to say that this is not a good flick, just a little different tweak on the book. I liked them both. My advice..read the book first.. you will enjoy the movie better for it

      Although the reviews I had read about this movie were not very good, I decided to watch it because of the actors and story line. I was not disappointed. This movie has beautiful scenery, great dialog and a heartwarming story. Robert Redford and Nick Nolte make great "old buddies" in some interesting and often funny situations while they attempt to hike the Appalachian trail. It probably appeals more to older people like myself, but I loved this movie.

      Bought this as a gift. When it was opened and put into the player it would not work. Took it back to the store and it was tried on heir player. Did not work. When it was originally opened it had fingerprints all over it. Also, it had a line going through it. Was told that several of the discs had been returned since they did not work. Told same about DVD. The manufacturer? Advised not to purchase another. Disappointed.

      Great movie but trouble with Blueray DVD disc

      One of the best movies I have ever seen geared toward older people but younger people can enjoy it too. I read some of the other comments about the disc not working and I had the same trouble. I had to exchange the Blueray disc 3 times before I got a good one that worked. Thank you Best Buy for exchanging my discs until I got one that worked. Best Buy and the movie get 5 stars in my book.

      I was happy to find the release of A Walk in the Woods at Best Buy. The package was a little damaged and we opened it before we took it home to be sure it was not damaged inside (which it wasn't). My only complaint is that one clerk was assisting us and went to "look for a better copy" and never came back to us so we waited for several minutes and realized we had been abandoned.

      Great Movie!

      I have hiked a very small portion of the A.T. in Virginia, and the movie brought back the urge to return to hike another section. Watching two legendary actors working together in these surroundings was icing on the cake. In good conscience I couldn't give it 5 stars due to the language and the fact you don't toss around a 50-60 pound pack like they did. Just nitpicking I guess.
