Cole has a light blond patch of hair on the back of his head. While it is normally on the right side, when he sits next to Kyra's sister on the swing it is suddenly on the left side. See more »
It's getting cold.
That is one fine frame; one fine frame that is. How much...

...does a fine frame like that cost, do you think?
I never told you, but you sound a little like Dr. Seuss when you're drunk.

The Spanish phrase "I don't want to die" that was played on the tape recorder in Malcolm's office is repeated after the credits. See more »
The Sixth Sense is one of those films that rarely happens these days. In other words, I knew so little about it before sitting in the cinema that it wasn't ruined before it started.
I don't want to ramble on about it so I'll just say... absolute perfection. An incredible story that had me and my friends gripped from start to finish. The twist in the tale was totally unexpected as well.
After it finished we sat through the whole of the credits and talked about how fabulous it was. If only more films were like this. I can't remember the last time we did that!
Congratulations to all involved in this masterpiece.
