Trivia

Pittsfield, MA, where Leah Bundy works in a war plant, is 174.2 miles from Rockport, the Bundys' home town. As of 2017, it's a little more than three hours, thirty minutes' trip via I-90 E, or approximately four hours via "surface roads." By bus, in a snowstorm, at night, in 1944 it might stretch to five or more hours. See more »

Goofs

After the bus accident, Aaron and the bus driver discover a broken tie-rod in the steering system, so the bus could not be driven, as is said. Later the bus is shown being flat-towed, with all four wheels on the ground. With a broken tie-rod, the vehicle would have to be towed with the front wheels off the ground, as the right wheel would not track. See more »

excellent family movie
22 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I just loved this movie. I hope it comes out in DVD, because i tell all my friends about the movie. Luckily I taped it on VHS when it came out and watch it still every year. But unfortunately its wearing out and i hope it holds up every year. This is my favorite favorite movie. We need more movies like this. My sixteen year old daughter loves it also. I cant say enough about this movie. I just hope it comes out in DVD. I wished though that it comes out every year on TV for the holidays. I look for it every year hoping that it will be on, and to my disappointment I wont see it on the TV list.This is the all time family movie.After I see it, I just want to call all my family on the phone and say that "I love them".
