Trivia

Even though they did not share any scenes, Bob Newhart and Noah Wyle shared one previous project before making this movie when Newhart guest starred on ER (1994) (co-starring Wyle) in 2003 as an artist going blind and contemplating suicide, a rare dramatic role for the legendary comedian.

Goofs

As Flynn is talking to Charlene and Judson just before leaving the library, the book containing the language of the birds is alternately in his hand and in his back pack between shots. See more »

Quotes

Flynn Carsen: I just want to get to know the Nicole beneath the surface arrogance. Peel back the layers.
Nicole Noone: What do you think is below the surface arrogance?
Flynn Carsen: More arrogance. And then perhaps a few delicious layers of flaky disdain. All around a creamy sweet center of homicidal rage.

Perfect family or "date" movie. Have two boys 10 and 12 who love anything action/adventure/fantasy. It is hard to find age appropriate movies in these genre that aren't campy or a bore. This has it all. Noah Wylie is cast perfectly, as is Jane Curtain and what a surprise Bob Newhart is. Cudos to the casting agents! This film is clean but yet full of action and adventure and humor. Nothing inappropriate or even moderately suggestive, no nudity, profanity or gore. There is one scene where someone is killed and might be a bit much for very young kids, but totally mild by today's standards. Even Nemo is scarier than this. This also lacks the "dark" of Tim Burton films, Lord of the Rings or even some of the Star Wars, etc. We need a series or at the very least a sequel and fast! If anyone knows any scoop on that, please email me!
