Goofs

Flashlights used in the holding-pit do not always produce visible beams on nearby walls, etc even though they are visibly turned on. Perhaps this is due to white-LED "imitation-glow" lenses used on the flashlights. See more »

Great Movie
2 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in this movie with Karl Malden and he was a great man to work with. I was in the first grade when it was filmed. I actually didn't even want to be in the movie. I was scared and didn't really know what to expect. But it was all worth it and I don't regret anything and I can say I've done something not a lot of people have. I had a lot of fun and it was worth all the long days I put in. Everybody I worked with was wonderful. I didn't really have a speaking part, but I did get to tell my Barbie to "shhhhh" when we were getting in trouble for being loud on the bus. I hope everyone that watches it, enjoys it just as much as I did making it.
