Trivia

Although Carl Bentley is shown to have still been an adult when Allen Parrish was a child, David Alan Grier, who plays Carl, is actually four years younger than Robin Williams, who plays the adult Allen. See more »

Goofs

There were 31 spaces on the game for each player from start to finish, main reason for other goofs mentioned in regards to this subject, but the biggest being Alan couldn't have finished when he did, since his rolls were: 5~?~7~3, and the second roll couldn't have been any higher than 11.

Quotes

Sarah Whittle: [after Alan got chased by Van Pelt] What is the deal with you and this guy?
Alan Parrish: He's a hunter. He kills things, that's what he does. And right now, he wants to hunt me and kill me, okay?
Sarah Whittle: Why you?
Alan Parrish: Why me? I don't know. Everything about me he finds offensive. You'd think it'd be a waste of his time. Maybe he needs something for his wall, you know, a Parrish - something to go between penguin and partridge.

A breathless unforgettable adventure!
4 March 2001 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I remember I watched this movie a few years back. I always wanted to see the movie again, and I finally did that today. Strange that this movie has alway been on top of my mind...

This movie is amazing! It has everything; comedy, love, adventure.

Shortly after the movie started, your mind will be sucked into the story.

Great!

10 out of 10 from me!
