When Zachary exits the artificial climb section (the one where he uses pitons), in the shot where we see him frontally, the mountain far in the background is the same "Bald Mountain" he is supposed to be climbing. See more »
You're sweating! Thinking of the dead men's money is making you sweat! I blame myself. It's my fault for you being like this. Somewhere I must have done something wrong for you to be like this.
Christopher 'Chris' Teller:

This movie is often described as simple and unidimensional. But in the context of spirituality and high moral character, this movie rates high.
Spencer's character is described as dull, and his acting effort minor. But how else is a man reverent of nature and God supposed to be portrayed. The subtleties of this character are often overlooked in our glamorized, sensationalized society. Quiet reverence, devotion to God and family are the central messages of this movie. Observe how Tracy's character tolerates and endures the unruly "modern-ess" of his much younger brother, portrayed well by Wagner.
This movie may be "sappy" to some, but I found it's moral message to be most uplifting and a pleasant departure from machine guns, gangster and starlets, sex and violence. Although, in a very minor respect, those elements are visible in this movie. This is a good family movie.
