Goofs

The Japanese sailor gets taken away by the Tanaka family hidden under a tarpaulin. The tarpaulin is roped and the load is well distributed in the back of their truck. When the two boys, Duke and PeeWee, cycle after the truck, you can see that the load is skewed and the rope is in a different position. See more »

I laughed and cried with the actors. Great family movie! Good for discussion of the evils of racism.
25 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the film. I thought the actors were very believable and I laughed and cried with them as the story unfolded. I found it a good vehicle to begin a discussion with my grandchildren of the history of one of the most shameful things our country had done in our treatment of the Japanese during this time period. I wish the film had been longer. There were times that the continuity was missing and I had to wonder how we got to the current point. Since I have the video, I replayed some scenes.
