Trivia

This movie was going to be called ERASMUS WITH FRECKLES, after the book on which it was based. But Brigitte Bardot only agreed to appear on the condition that her name did not appear in the credits or any of the promotional materials. The only way the producers could capitalize on Americans' fascination with Bardot was by changing the title to alert the audience that she was in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When asking Erasmus and the computer to divide 17,590,038,552,578 by 680, Erasmus says it can't be done evenly. He says that it can ONLY be divided by 8,191 and 2,147,483,647. When these two numbers are multiplied together, their product is 17,790,038,552,577. They fail to mention it is divisible by 2. See more »

Quotes

Professor Robert Leaf: Uh, Ras, I'd like to talk to ya.
Vina Leaf: Oh. Man to man stuff.
Erasmus 'Ras' Leaf: Already? I'm only eight.

a strange yet bland film
29 December 2005 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1960s, Jimmy Stewart did several family films that were just rather bland and, in my opinion, wasted his amazing talents. I am not saying they are BAD films, just imminently forgettable and are best described as "fluff". In other words, while time-passers, they have very little lasting value. The movie does have a few mildly interesting moments but that's really about all. In fact, the only reason the film even gets a score of 6 is because Stewart is in the film and he tries his best with the mediocre material. My recommendation is do NOT run out and rent it or buy it but wait until it comes out on cable. This is a far cry from THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE or MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON. It's more like an episode of GIDGET combined with PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES.

This is pretty much the same review I gave for MR. HOBBES TAKES A VACATION. Both were almost exactly as bland as the other. What sets this apart is the strange plot involving a young Billy Mumy as a genius who is smitten with the actress Brigitte Bardot (the kid had good taste). Ms. Bardot makes a cameo near the end of the film, but apart from that it's a pretty forgettable film.
