In the scenes where Gabe and Rosemary are talking on the telephone, filmmakers decided not to use cordless phones because they wanted an old-fashioned feel to the movie. See more »
Gabe claims that he didn't know anyone else but Rosemary on his first day of Karate class. But later when he gets partnered with David Betanahu he comments on how David has had a mustache since nursery school. And the photo shown of young David is the exact same class photo that included young Gabe and young Rosemary. Since you can spot David among the others in the first day of karate class, it can't be argued that David joined later. See more »
As I held onto Rosemary Telesco for dear life, we both knew the truth. She was going off to camp and eventually, private school. We were on different roads, she and me. Two ships that passed in Sheep Meadow.

It's about time! I've been tired of the usual romantic comedies -- guy in high-school/college/work falls in love with beautiful girl -- the courting.. the romanticism (i mean physical stuff! a lot of it!).. breakup.. rejoining.. happy ever after.
The usual formula.. it's followed since the start of time and it will remain there until the nukes destroy this world. BUT this movie had something different to offer.. of course there's a guy and definitely there's a girl.. and yES! he falls in love! that's obvious.. wouldn't be a romantic comedy without that..
One thing that is definitely different in this case is that the boy is a 10 yr old and the girl.. um.. 11 yrs..
So.. yeah.. a brilliant concept.. looking at love from the perspective of a kid. Something we saw before in The Wonder Years of course.. but much more. It gives you a very personal look at New York and Manhattan. The emotions and the feelings evoked by the whole affair in the situation is realistic and very funny.
Overall a feel good movie with a different twist on the physical side of love.. Please watch it! I'm sure you'll love every second!
