Trivia

Viewers who recognize actor Ryan Reynolds will realize that, as Dylan is leaving after the grave-side service for his grandfather, he first meets Mr. D who is going to the grave to pay his own respects (at around 07 mins). See more »

Goofs

Mr. D is using a microwave to heat up a Moon Pie. In one shot, his left hand is holding the microwave door open; then we switch to another shot where the door is closed and he presses the following buttons: 1, 5, START. The next shot is a continuation of the first, where we see him holding the microwave door open. Also, depending on which shot you want to use for when the microwave actually started, it runs for either 7 or 9 seconds, not 15. See more »

Not enough. That's how much time we have--not enough
21 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that the reason I wanted to catch this movie was just because Ryan Reynolds was in it...but after seeing it I was just blown away. He was great, as usual, and the story itself was very moving. I'm not a crier at all...but this movie had me in tears, yet at the same time Reynolds had some of the funniest lines so it was a great mix of both. It's a movie for the whole family, and it'll really have a lasting affect on anyone who sees it...I know it did on me. I've seen it 12 times in a 3 day span and have yet to grow sick of it. School of Life is definitely one of the best films I've seen in a long time and I hope they release it on DVD because I just might wear a hole in my VHS ^_^
