Adapted from the best-selling book, this old-fashioned odd-couple comedy stars Robert Redford as travel writer Bill Bryson, who attempts to hike the Appalachian trail with his old college buddy, Katz (Nick Nolte). The slapdash script aims for mild chuckles, and manages about five of them. Oddly inept storytelling handicaps any chance of genuine insight, but at least we get to watch Nolte and Redford work together. This is a lousy movie, but there’s a good one in the premise of two 70-somethings on a scenic, comic journey. Luckily, it was made last year: It’s called Land Ho!.
