Goofs

In one scene, Bill Vigars refers to Canada Day, the July 1 holiday commemorating the Confederation of Canada. This may be perceived as an anachronism, as the holiday was not officially known as Canada Day until 1982; in 1980, its official name was still Dominion Day. However, it should be noted that informally, many Canadians were already referring to the holiday as Canada Day; the official name change *reflected* an already existing usage. See more »

Hate this movie, there is something wrong with you!
25 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is everything I like in a film. I watched this on TV, knowing it would be good, I was right. I talked to my friend Stephanie on the phone and we watched it together, we were both pleased! 1. The acting, I never knew Shawn Ashmore was so good. All I have seen him in was X Men, In A Heartbeat and a couple other things. Excellent acting. Even though Shawn and Terry's voices were nothing alike, GREAT MOVIE! 2. The story. Terry fox was a Canadian legend and hero and we remember him greatly. If only he was still here, he was a great person.

3. It shows how proud Canadians can be instead of all these Americans called us Canadians losers. We are good people.

This film deserves an Oscar. One of the best films ever made.
