It is rumored that the script for Josh and S.A.M. is based on the real-life events in the life of Josh and Sam Rosen in 1990. While not as dramatic, these two brothers embarked on a similar misadventure in Woodbridge, CT, involving a stolen car and police chase following a family squabble. The two were eventually found by authorities hiding in their friend Brad Taylor's tree house. Brad Taylor was reading a book on a bench elsewhere at the time. See more »

I just saw Jean Pierre on 60 Minutes confessing everything. He was in the shadows but I could tell by those big lips of his.

"Josh and S.A.M." is one of those movies that probably most appeals to the pre-teen crowd, but it's still kind of a neat story. Portraying two brothers (Jacob Tierney and Noah Fleiss) going on a most unusual voyage of self-discovery, they know how to play everything here. It was really neat how the woman (Martha Plimpton) went along with the whole Liberty Maid thing.
All in all, I wouldn't be surprised if this movie one day inspires some youngsters to attempt what it portrays. Maybe it's not a masterpiece, but still an interesting look at life. Also starring Stephen Tobolowsky, Joan Allen, Chris Penn, Maury Chaykin, and a young Jake Gyllenhaal.
