Trivia

The willow tree that is seen throughout the movie is not a willow tree. Due to issues finding a perfect pond with a willow tree by it, the creators had to find a different tree, remove all of its branches, and replace the tree's branches with fake willow tree branches. See more »

Goofs

When Vada and Thomas J. are running away from the bees, Thomas J. says, "Run faster! They're after us!" and Vada responds, "I am running faster!" However, if one watches the scene in slow-motion, it is clear that neither of their lips are moving as they say their lines. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Vada Sultenfuss: I was born jaundiced. Once I sat on a toilet seat at a truck stop and caught hemorrhoids. And I've learned to live with this chicken bone that's been lodged in my throat for the past three years. So I knew Dad would be devastated when he learned of my latest affliction.

If you don't cry, you have a heart of stone.
10 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is fantastic. Honestly, i have never cried so much watching a movie, and i don't cry at movies much. But even though the bits towards the end which will have you bawling are what the film is remembered for, everything in this film is just...fantastic. parts are hilarious,parts are just sweet, and by the end of the film, you are genuinely caring for the characters.

If you haven't seen this film, WATCH IT. But don't find out what happens, watch it first. I lent the video i have to some friends, and all of them loved it, and told me they cried.

Seriously, this film will make you cry. big time.
