When the boys are filming Marshals antics at the beginning of the movie, they use a Kodak Brownie 8mm camera. The Brownie was a spring wound camera. As the film was exposed the spring unwound and the winding key, visible on the side of the camera would turn. In this movie it doesn't. Further, the camera held only two minutes of film and the spring wind would expose less than one minute. Many of the sequences are longer than that. When they upgrade to 16mm we see them watching their first footage. They use a Bell & Howell 500 series sound projector. It's threaded wrong with the film coming off the back of the feed reel instead of the front. At the end of the movie they use the same projector to show their "unfinished" film and they use the same reels of film. Their complaint that they didn't shoot enough film to give a show is justified. Only 4 or 5 minutes of film is on the take-up reel when the show ends. Also, an equal amount is on the feed reel, unshown, even though they have apparently shown all the film they had. See more »

A film that allows you to escape life's cruelties for a period of time.
I recently watched this movie on a Sunny Sunday morning whilst in bed, sounds very ideological, but is true. I must say I do not believe it is all that bad. OK at times the screenplay does stray away from it's original context and the stereotypical WASP family may reinforce unrealistic portrayals of Hollywood, but with this, with a little effort on our behalf, we the audience can allow ourselves to be whisked away into the young boys adventure, out of the harsh realities of life. When analysed, issues of father and son relationships and the transition of boy to manhood become quite clear. Taking into consideration that the film was made nearly ten years ago, I feel it serves importantly as balance between strong realism and fairy tale.
