Derry, New Hampshire is spelled "Dairy" [sic] in the film. It is also spelled "Dairy" in John Irving's original novel which this movie was based on. Nonetheless, the town of Derry's high school is a private school just as in the film (i.e., the town pays tuition for its students to attend the private school). Its name is Pinkerton Academy and its colors are red and silver/white, vice the "Dairy High School" and blue and white of the film. See more »

First off, the book was fairly thick, bizarre, and complex, therefore making it hard to convert this genius novel into a movie. As I watch this movie, I wish that they left it alone. Or at least turned it into a good mini-series. There are many plot holes throughout the film. Had I not read the book prior to, I would have had a great difficulty following. I still had a hard time following. And they left huge chunks out...pertinent parts. The acting, however, is good. Rob Lowe is quite pleasing to the eye. And Jodie Foster and Beau Bridges were pretty good too. Oh well.
Maybe I'll reread the book.
