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

Gabe: 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.

Cutest movie I've ever seen!
30 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the cutest movies I've ever seen in my life! The movie is light-hearted and incredibly sweet. It tells the story of an adorable 10-year-old boy named Gabe whose parents are divorcing, but under New York law they must remain living together until the divorce is final. (This creates a small problem, as you can probably imagine.) Gabe becomes infatuated with Rosemary, a girl in his karate class he knew as a kindergärtner. They begin to practice karate together and Gabe's like for her blooms into love. I won't spoil anything but Josh Hutcherson is SO sweet narrating the movie, which melted my heart. Charlie Ray is one of the prettiest little girls I've ever seen! It's one of my all-time favorites and a great movie to see as a family. Let me tell you now that the presence of New York City (of which I was born and raised) is the backbone of the movie, having many beautiful scenes along the river and in Central Park. That's almost as good as Gabe's imaginations of karate gurus- you'll have to see it to know what I mean!
