When Arthur is taking August to Wizard's for the first time, August is holding a can of soda in one hand, while Arthur is holding the pizza box. In the next shot, August is holding the pizza box, but no can and there would have been no way he would have disposed of it or taken the box from Arthur. See more »
Utter drivel. That is about all I can say about it. I have joined IMDb just to comment on this film. And I resent giving it even one star. There should be an option for no stars.
I wish I had not wasted about 2 hours of my life watching this non-sensical whimsy. I selected it on the basis that it had a 7.4 rating from IMDb reviewers, but I am just going to make our film selections completely randomly from now on because 7.4 is no way to rate this film. Awful, awful, awful. Give it a wide berth, fellow humans.
And I am truly appalled by reviews that say if you don't love this film, you have no imagination. This film is what lacks imagination. Utterly dreadful, implausible, sentimental claptrap of the highest order.
Avoid at all costs.
