Trivia:
In the re-enactment of Terry Fox's speech in Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square, Terry is wearing a hockey jersey with nothing on the front. In real life, he was wearing Darryl Sittler's NHL All-Star Team jersey (with the NHL logo displayed predominantly), but the cost of licensing the NHL logo meant the shirt was left blank (though Sittler's name and number is still on the back)See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as 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 »

Good inspiring film, but omits large chunks of Terry's personality., 18 September 2005
Author: stargeek99 from Toronto, Canada

As a kid growing up I can remember Terry Fox. I can also remember taking part in the first Terry Fox run at my school when I was in grade 2. I think it's great that he's left such a legacy.

This is the second movie about Terry Fox I've seen. The first, "The Terry Fox Story" (1983) makes no bones about Terry's complicated personality and his sometimes strained relationships with those around him. It was well known that what drove Terry to take on a challenge such as this also made it difficult to be around him.

Fox's story in "Terry" seems accurate enough, but with the glaring omission of the more controversial sides of his personality. I think this is a shame, as it doesn't take away from his accomplishments at all but makes him more real, and to that end more people could connect to him rather than some nostalgic saintly version of him.

Terry Fox is a true Canadian hero and his story should continue to be told. Overall a fine made-for-TV movie, but check out the other version as well.
