Did You Know?

After finishing this film, Jennifer Connelly and Maddie Corman both auditioned for the lead role in Labyrinth (1986). Innitially Corman was very much considered, but when Connelly auditioned it was clear to director Jim Henson that she was the right choice.See more »
Continuity: In the scene where Knudsen hits a home run, there are a few editing mistakes. The filming takes place in Shea Stadium. Well if the Generals were supposed to be the home team, they should have been wearing white uniforms. The other team, the Mets, where the ones wearing white. Also, the up close shot of the Mets pitcher, Dwight Gooden, clearly shows his number as 16. After the home run, the Mets pitcher is shown with number 76. Knudsen is a right handed batter, the distant shot of the home run, shows a left handed batter swinging.See more »

Very true to be fifteen again....never, 5 December 1999
Author: ann70 from fort worth, texas

I really enjoyed this movie.I was fifteen when this movie came out and I could relate. This will be a movie I would show my kids to let them know, the feelings they are having are normal. It is funny to see how we could be so devestated by things at such a young age..who knew that we would bounce back....again and again....Great movie!!!!
