Not only do Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Roger Bomman) and Brenda Fricker (Maggie Nelson) share the same birthday - Februray 17th - but the two actors have played opposite Daniel Day-Lewis as a relative of his main character. Fricker previously played Day-Lewis's mother, Mrs. Brown, in My Left Foot (1989) five years prior and Gordon-Levitt would go on to play his son, Robert Lincoln, in Lincoln (2012) eighteen years later. Day-Lewis won the Best Actor Oscar for both films, Fricker won the Best Supporting Actress for My Left Foot, but Gordon-Levitt did not receive a nomination for his performance in Lincoln. See more »

At first you think another Disney movie, it might be good, but it's a kids movie. But when you watch it, you can't help but enjoy it. All ages will love this movie. I first saw this movie when I was 10 and now 8 years later I still love it! Danny Glover is superb and could not play the part any better. Christopher Lloyd is hilarious and is perfect for the part. Tony Danza is so believable as Mel Clark. You can't help, but to enjoy this movie! I give it a 10/10!
