The movie stars: Emma Thompson, Kristen Schaal, Mary Steenburgen, Nick Nolte, Nick Offerman and Robert Redford. We’ve posted blurbs from a few of the critics, below.

Todd McCarthy at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a very good 80 score, saying: ” A Walk in the Woods serves as a terrific showcase for two exceptionally durable stars.”

Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 75 grade. He said: “Their odd couple interplay propels a series of shambling, expletive-laden mishaps that aim more for easy laughs than Wild epiphanies.”

Peter Keough at the Boston Globe, gave it a 63 score. He stated: “It consists of a series of episodic encounters, misadventures, and musings redeemed in part by the presence of two scenic wonders, the unspoiled 2,190-mile grandeur of the Appalachian Trail and the spectacular crapulousness of Nick Nolte.”

Susan Wloszczyna at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 63 grade, saying: “These guys still know how to not just hold our attention but grab it, even if their current film needs them more than they need it.”

Joe Neumaier at the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 score. He stated: “Natural” perfectly describes Nolte’s performance, too. With his growly voice and bear-like aura, he might be dismissed as a walking sight gag, but don’t let that fool you. Nolte’s way with a joke is nimble, and his delivery is spot-on.”
