The scene where Gabe gets in trouble for running off with Rosemary was a real event that happened to the director with his girlfriend when he was 16. See more »
As has already been mentioned, David Betenahu was in the preschool photo with both Gabe and Rosemary, as well as being visible in the Karate class on the first day.

This is a great movie. I was laughing through the whole thing, not because it's a comedy, per se, but rather because I can relate to Gabe on so many levels. What I mean is, this film will resonate with any of you guys out there who've ever felt uneasy getting close to a girl, and with any girls who've ever known a guy to be that way. This is a real family film that is actually appropriate enough to be viewed by the whole family, and those can be hard to find these days. All of the actors did a great job, especially Josh Hutcherson (Gabe) and Charlie Ray (Rosemary). They did an amazing job. The story is interesting the whole way through - very entertaining, and I recommend this movie to you.
