I'm so behind the times! The last movie I saw was Get Smart with Steve Carell on Thanksgiving Day. I was prepared to be disappointed since I was a big fan of the original series but I found it entertaining and funny. Of course it wasn't quite as slapstick as the tv show but still good.

What made this film so stereotypical?
There are so many films with this kind of family drama. (and also thousands of TV serials repeating same theme.)

Eldest brother was sacrificing for younger brother. Some one jealous and he or she was intoxicating the mind of the family members, Joint family became broken.

At end of the movie everyone realizing their faults and they became joint and happy again.

The stereotyping is odd coming from the country's own film makers. Thanks for your insight.

I cannot understand the movie properly.
Yup, with Russell Crowe. Turned out to be a good movie. The rancher (Dan Evans) is in debt because the rancher upstream cut off his water supply and he has to pay for some water plus feed as he has no grass growing to sustain his cattle. As a result he takes a job escorting the bad guy (Wade) to the prison train that goes to Yuma (comes in at 3:10pm hence the name of the movie). In the end the bad guy actually helps the rancher out, but his gang mistakenly kills the rancher so the bad guy kills his own gang. The reason the bad guy was going to help the rancher out is because he has been to the Yuma prison twice and escaped both times, so he figured after the rancher deliverd him to the train and got his money, he would let his gang break him out and they both get what they want.

Hope that helps you.
