And that says it all.
Some great poetic and parallel themes with fine acting. Several man-woman relationships are undertoned in this suprisingly sweet coming of age film, slighly reminiscent of STAND BY ME.

We found it very slow moving and were expecting it to turn around a lot sooner than it did.
The plot was good, although the main characters were lacking and I was expecting some interaction between them other than just a wave at the end.

Story line was good, but didn't go anywhere. Ending left a lot to be desired. Boys were terrific and "Elllis" should be up for an award. There was enough "star power" for this to be a great movie. Missed the mark. Will not buy DVD.

Excellent movie; great story line; wonderful play between the characters. The boys did a great job and, of course, McConaughey was awesome! I would recommend Mud to anyone. We had a great time watching this movie.

Two boys find a boat in a tree, meet a strange man, and life gets exciting from there on out. A Southern coming of age flick with romance, revenge, gunplay, explosions, and teen logic. Plus an actual plot and believable characters.
