Trivia

The director's mother-in-law appears as one of the guests at the wedding. She's the lady who walks past Rosemary's parents after we see Rosemary and Gabe going to the dance floor. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Rosemary: What do you think?
Birdie: You are going to be the prettiest flower girl there.
Rosemary: I'm definitely going to be the oldest one.

amazing!
8 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i fell in love again and actually called up my first love. even though i was dragged to the movie by my date, i enjoyed more than she did and we both loved it! i hope this does well it was great i really like it i want to meet the makers, the camera work was awesome, everyone should see it the actors were amazing, new york is so romantic, i could relate to the boy, i love scooters, i love karate i love everything to do with this movie! i went to see this movie twice because i want it to open nationwide. if you like good films see this one! i am a very tough movie critic and i almost never like movies as much as this one. its all very true to life and its seen through the eyes of a boy that i think most guys can relate to...i can't believe that i'm ranting and raving about this but i feel obliged. well i have to fill up the rest of the space but i just wanted to let everyone know how i felt. if you like Manhattan you will like this love story about Manhattan and the pains and the great moments in this love letter to Manhattan. PS all the acting was great
