It’s a delightful funny film filled with veteran actors (Nick Nolte, Robert Redford, Mary Steenburgen, and Emma Thompson).
Truly, Kristen Schaal as Mary Ellen is the annoying, obnoxious fellow traveler whom talks endlessly and knows all, that brings the most to her small, albeit scene stealing role.
Nick Nolte, is great in his portrayal of an overweight alcoholic who volunteers to join Robert Redford on a trek of the Appalachian Trail. I can relate.
So go on – take A Walk in the Woods, and expect nothing but a consistently pleasant experience. Watch out for bears!
