Fred Savage plays a boy named Corey who is the middle child in his family. Four years later his younger brother Ben Savage played a boy named Cory on Boy Meets World (1993) who was also the middle child in his family. See more »
In the hotel scene, when Nick sets up the Nintendo to the television, he does not connect the audio/visual cables. This creates an impossibility as these cables are needed to play the games on any video monitor. See more »
This movie first aired in 1989, when Fred Savage was boy wonder and on top of the world and when Jenny Lewis was every young girl's dream. A lot of people say this movie was a commercial for Nintendo but really it wasn't........it was a movie for everyone that has a lost a loved one, for people who have been traumatized, and for people all around the world. The movie shows us that anyone can achieve their goal if they only believe.
