When author Bill Bryson (Redford) decides to hike the over 2000-mile Appalachian Trail, concerned wife Catherine (Thompson) only agrees to let him go if he takes a companion: cue his old schoolmate Stephen Katz (Nolte), a fat, creaky, unhealthily florid slob. Amiable comic adventure, not eventful enough to be thigh-slapping, but still amusing.
