A Walk in the Woods

When you push yourself to the edge, the real fun begins.


A Walk in the Woods
A travel writer, instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail, which is 2,200 miles of America’s most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek: his long lost and former friend, who is now a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, ''adventure''...

Tomatometer quote icon Amiable yet less compelling than any road trip movie starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte should be, A Walk in the Woods is ultimately a bit too pedestrian.
