Goofs

When Bob is at the amusement park & walking down the ramp to get on the roller coaster (which is really Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA), it's obvious he is going the wrong way down the exit ramp rather than using the real entrance. In the next shot, he is shown on the other side of the roller coaster track getting into the coaster. See more »

Touching movie
28 November 1999 | by (Westervik, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I'm not a very big fan of these kind of movies, but this one stands out. Watching Bob (Michael Keaton) record advices to his son to watch later in life was indeed very touching, and his struggle to make up with his parents... I can recognize his feelings in myself sometimes... Very good and touching movie.
