Goofs

When the first news people chase Susan Sarandon's character to her car the camera's battery falls off. With a nod to continuity it stays off in the following shots of the scene. Factually though this would render the camera useless. The camera wouldn't work and since the viewfinder is electronic it would be dead, or blank. Even in the extremely unlikely event the cameraman didn't notice the weight and balance change of the battery having fallen off the camera's shutting off and being dead would have been noticed by the cameraman.

An unusual family
11 August 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Being the mother of six children myself(so far)I feel it's great to find a movie where a mother,especially one of many kids,is made visible,as a person in her own right and not just as a bystander and comfort for the rest of the family.Usually it isn't such an attractive theme for a film maker(not being so glamorous and all),but here Susan Sarandon(grown up in a large family herself)portrays a mother of seven sons with great credibility. Maybe not one of those movies you watch for an hour or two of escapism and action,but well worth your time.Maybe I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much if a)it hadn't been a Sarandon movie b)I hadn't had many kids myself. But I can't help liking it.
