Trivia

Several elements from the original story have been changed: in the novel, Vicky and her family knew about her grandfather's condition the entire time, she had an older brother, her younger sister was much older and prettier, there was a third boy she was interested in, the plot element about drift nets was entirely absent, and her parents were present during the whole trip at the grandfather's house.

Goofs

In the opening scene, while Mischa Barton's character dreams of swimming as a mermaid, she does a somersault underwater that horribly reveals the fakeness of the tail: a flap of fabric from the waist is shown dangling, her knees scrunch up the material, and the entire waistline crinkles up.

Quotes

Grandfather: You wrote something that's very comforting
Vicky: [reading] The universe is part of this one cry In this strange land where all are born to die, Each tree and leaf and star shall have, The universe as part of this one cry. That every life is noted and is cherished, And nothing loved is ever lost or perished.'
Grandfather: You, you understand.

Best Family movie, Mischa Barton shines!
16 September 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is just the sweetest family movie, and the best I've seen on Disney Channel in a long time. My nieces thought the movie was magical and it even entertained Gran. I hadn't seen the young Mischa Barton before but, boy she really has charisma, and she shines in this movie. We all laughed and cried along with her. She reminds me of a young Julia Roberts, there's something about her eyes. She and James Whitmore together were so great! I give it a ten! Disney Channel should have more like this!
