I expected better from this cast and screenplay.Matthew McConnaughey was good as the character "Mud".Here he is living on this boat in the middle of nowhere with no food.He can't go into the town.Yet he always has a fresh pack of smokes.Reese Witherspoon who is supposed to be a main character has about 10 lines.The relationship between the two is not clear till the second half of the movie.The two boys that befriend Mud give some credibility to the story.Sam Shepard was good .Mud is not a good guy .There are bounty hunters the want to kill him rather than bringing him to justice.Wait till this movie comes on Video.

I see a ton of movies and, in all honesty, this is the best I've seen in the last 10 years. Hands down. I won't tell you anything else. Just please see it.

This movie was fantastic. Mathew, although not looking his best was and always will be very easy on the eyes. His talent soars and works as a spring board to the two new and upcomming young actors he shares the screen with. My Ten year old newphew stayed glued to the screen.

I am still thinking about Mud the day after seeing it. Great character development showed many dimensions of each actor. The story was compelling and the two young actors were fantastic. I was not pleased with the language, especially by the younger actors, but it was not gratuitous and did fit the storyline.

Really enjoyed this movie ,Matthew of course did a great job acting, but I really enjoyed the two boys in the movie. The movie has some cuss words and a little raunchy talk between the boys so I think PG-13 is the correct rating.The scenery is beautiful The movie felt like a modern day Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer type movie, a Must Go movie.
