Trivia

In the Mirror Maze (at around 35 mins) and after, viewers should realize that although Tom and Thomas are wearing identical white corduroy jackets with hooded orange zippered liners, Thomas' liner is zipped up so his front is orange while Tom's liner is unzipped, so his front is black. A more subtle difference is that Thomas' hair is parted on his left while Tom's hair is parted in the middle. Viewers may confuse them before the Mirror Maze when, after Thomas and his father enter the Space Museum with tickets, Tom sneaks in (at around 34 mins) by calling out "Mom, wait for me", pretending she is ahead of him -- staff thinking he were Thomas would aid his ruse.

Surprisingly good
11 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I rented this mostly because I adore Sean Bean. It was nice to see him in a film where he doesn't kill people or get killed, for a change.

I expected the typical "twins change homes" tale in the vein of the Olsen twins vehicle I had suffered through a few years back but I was definitely pleasantly surprised. It is not obvious at first that there really is a second boy. The scene where Thomas is feeling all that is happening to his twin is very well directed and stuck with me.

There are some scenes that would probably upset young children. Finch, the wild eyed caretaker of the boy's home Tom is in, is particularly frightening and there are certain undertones of sexual abuse about it (not that anything other than physical abuse happens, but still)

In all, this is a good movie for children. Sean Bean fans will not get an awful lot (though I happen to think ConcernedFather!Sean is sexy)
