Trivia

The basketball game was shot in the gymnasium of what was, at that time, Broken Arrow Senior High, Broken Arrow Oklahoma. To make it look like a nighttime game, they put thick black paper over the windowpanes. This added to the heat generated by the summer weather, as they were filming daylight hours. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, the outside shot of the hospital shows that it's nighttime. Yet when we see Tex in his hospital bed right after that shot of the hospital, the window shows that it is full daylight. See more »

Quotes

Tex McCormick: [Whimpers] Oh no...
Mason McCormick: [walks into Tex's room] Tex? You alright? You lose Something?
Tex McCormick: [laying under his bed with only his feet sticking out] It's kinda nice down here. Cool and Quiet.
Mason McCormick: Yeah, well maybe you should hurry it up so you can come have breakfast under the kitchen table. Then maybe you can catch a ride under the school bus!
Tex McCormick: [Gets up from under his bed and wraps a blanket around him] You would like that wouldn't you?

BIXBY NOT Broken Arrow
5 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was not based in Broken Arrow it was based in Bixby Oklahoma it's a little ways aways from Broken Arrow. I grew up and went to school there and when they are eating in the cafeteria thats the art room this is a very good movie although I don't like the fact that all the Disney movies (with a few exceptions)one or more of the parents are gone. Why is this? Does anyone know? Tex is a good movie and the most of the landmarks that are in the movie are still there in Bixby and that little town is growing very quickly. If anyone has any questions I would love to answer them. I would recommend this movie to anyone living in the Bixby/Tulsa/Mounds area. Thank you
