While in Vietnam, the main character and others are seen wearing the subdued 101st Airborne division patch, which had not yet been designed and was not allowed for wear until nearly 20 years after the film takes place. Interestingly, the correct full-color patch is more readily available today. See more »

A wonderful story about friendship and overcoming obstacles
The story is a compassionate one about overcoming great obstacles and making the best of it. The friendship that develops between two unlikely characters is incredible. There is not a weak link in the bunch. Every portrayal is so refreshingly honest and believable. Yul Vasquez is an incredible actor! You will be amazed that Michael Sheen does not have a disability. It made me feel that there was so much more that I could do with my life, and that I am in reality essentially lazy. It is very motivating to say the least. I hate to spoil it for anyone and give away too many details. The soundtrack will have you doing some toe-tapping as well. Enjoy it and soak up every moment!
