Trivia

"Wilson" is obviously a reference to the manufacturer of the ball used in the movie. But other Wilsons have played an important role in Tom Hanks life and career. Hanks' wife is actress Rita Wilson. And in Hanks' first TV role, he played the part of Kip Wilson in Bosom Buddies (1980). See more »

Goofs

When Chuck throws the volleyball, it is still in its packaging. But in an earlier scene while he is holding the ice skates, the ball is seen out of its box and loose on the ground. See more »

What a fantastic film!!!
28 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a more meaningful and thought-provoking film. Right from the start, I knew this was going to be a classic film, and my opinion was not changed throughout the course of the movie one bit. It delivers such a strong message of fear, survival and hope, that leaves your mind devoted to thinking about it for a long while after. It made me think about all my creature comforts, and what is actually necessary in life. Talking to a volleyball has never been more dramatic! I also loved the fact that there was little talking in the film, maybe that was because i was staying in a hotel in France with french TV, but anyway, it sort of made you guess how he was feeling, in a clever way. This is one of my all time favourite films, and I could watch it again and again without getting bored... so go and watch it...NOW!!
