Trivia

Bruce Willis' character Gabby (as the Cowboy) fires several rounds from a rifle in the desert. This wasn't just any rifle. It was the famous rifle Chuck Connors' character Lucas McCain used in The Rifleman, a Winchester 44-40 with a 20-inch barrel and the conspicuous backwards, round-D style loop, and the 8-32 set screw tapped through the trigger guard to give the rifle its rapid-fire action that made The Rifleman famous and which Willis took advantage of in this scene in North.

Hollywood has reached a new low
3 April 2001 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wow this movie was bad. I heard Siskel and Ebert slandering it when I was younger...and I was thinking that it couldn't possibly be that bad. Well,...I was wrong. Elijah Wood plays a boy who doesn't like his parents because they don't let him do everything that he wants to. She he decides to take them to court. And the suprising thing is that he actually wins. Kids don't get out of their homes when their parents are molesting them, beating them, and neglecting them, and North gets out because his parents don't let him run wild like he doesn't have any? The movie is just lame. Maybe it's amusing to 10 year olds who think that parents should let them do whatever they want, but the world just isn't like that. So get over it. The only good thing about this movie...of which many other commentaries have mentioned, was Bruce Willis in the pink bunny suit. I bet he will never live that down. He's probably looking back on this movie and crying. It was nice to see him in a 'family' movie. 2 out of 10. The 2 points are for the bunny costume.
