The odd and perplexing line, "I swallowed a bug", said by Casey Affleck's character Morgan in the Harvard bar scene, is a reference to the documentary "Hearts of Darkness", as well as actor Marlon Brando. The behind-the-scenes documentary tells of the making and struggles Francis Ford Coppola had during the production of Apocalypse Now. In a look at one of Marlon Brando's scenes, his line is interrupted when he accidentally swallows a real bug, and states to Francis Ford Coppola off camera, "I swallowed a bug." See more »

I first saw Good Will Hunting in February of '98. It blew me away. I happily disregard comments by people who say: "The probability of something like that happening..." This film is bold in that giving Will such a mind colors outside of the lines. It simply aims to tell a story. It is a beautiful story told in a magnificent manner. Robin Williams was superb in his role, his effect on Damon electric. Minnie Driver and Matt Damon's on-screen chemistry was undeniable. More films like this one are needed. And yes, the ending was predictable. That made it perfect. I wouldn't have had it any other way.
