Trivia

Goofs

Near the end, when Joe is in the submerged school bus the water is calm and the bubbles from his nose rise gracefully toward the surface. However, the bus is supposed to be in quickly moving rapids at the bottom of a waterfall. Visibility would be near zero, and he should be fighting the current (which he is not). See more »

2.5 - 3 Star Review, Content Over Form
28 February 2004 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

Setting aside several brilliant, but slashing technophile reviews, the experience of the story is more important than the mechanics, or the fact that several trendy notions have been graphed together. I don't care that it is New Age, Old Age, Stone Age... whatever. I don't even care that Costner doesn't seem to know where anything is going. I don't care if the director knew either. This is a story about the spirit of the only person absent from the film. The thing that drives the fictional Emily in the fictional tale is more compelling than anything else. What mother would not defy death to see this plot to conclusion? The broader message is most uplifting, the very powerful, spiritual, magical force that is love. It isn't too difficult to mine this treasure from the mud. Overall, I found the story very interesting and it survives the mediocrity of dialog and implausibility of the doctor's behavior at the hospital. The movie is even better on the second viewing. Sue me, but I really liked it.
