With combined ages a few years beyond Lemmon and Matthau in Grumpy Old Men, you may have a pretty good idea what you’re getting with the seasoned comedy travelogue, A Walk in the Woods. At 79 and 74 years old, respectively, there are a lot of miles on Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.

On the other hand, they bring literally 100 years of filmmaking experience to the table here, so while A Walk in the Woods is pretty formulaic, these guys know what they’re doing. It’s basically what the title describes: old friends attempt to walk the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. Of course, there are life lessons doled out, even though these guys are about done living theirs. Redford is solid, but Nolte steals it, infusing the movie with a lot more genuine humor than you might expect.

A good recommendation for your parents’ Labor Day weekend.
