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 »

This stars 2 brothers living with their single mother of which the older brother obviously feels restless and annoyed by things and feels what we all feel to get out and just see where life will take you to get away from your own problems you may have.
The older brother Josh invents a story that his brother Sam is a genetic military soldier and that they must get to Canada to avoid him being sent to war.
So they head off and along the way and they meet both good & bad people as you do in life and through the cleverness of Josh and good fortune they manage to outwit the adults at every step.
I first saw this when I was 15 and for some reason its stuck with me despite its appearance of being a simple kids film and nigh unheard off I feel its a very deep touching story in its own right and even as an adult now I feel I could watch it and get something from it if its ever decided to release it on optical media of course....
