Goofs

In the big close-up in Jimmy's game at the Nationals, he waits a while, then moves the pawn in front of his Queen, which is correctly placed on a white square. The board has been set up wrongly, though, so the Queen should be on his left. A later shot shows the King and Queen in their correct positions. See more »

Quotes

Richard: The Queen is the most powerful piece on the board, the catch is everyone wants to kill her.

Very good family movie
9 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was one of the best things Ted Danson has done. I liked the story and I liked all the kids! I must admit this is one of my favorite kind of stories. I think Richard was a great teacher and he accomplished what many teachers only hope to accomplish. I have great admiration for teachers who use innovative ways of teaching children who don't seem to want to learn. In this film, the teacher uses the game of chess as the instrument of learning. It may seem strange that children would find this game interesting. That's where the intellect of the teacher shines through.I highly recommend this movie to one and all.
