Director Rich Christiano mentioned "Before we showed this movie in theaters, we first screened it in some Christian film festivals, and the first one we ever showed this movie at was in Boston ..." (at 36:13 in 'Behind the Secrets of Jonathan Sperry'). That was The Merrimack Valley Christian Film Festival in Lawerence, 29 miles north of Boston (3/16/2008-3/23/2008). Rich Christiano also refers to this screening at 25:07 in the DVD commentary, saying the film "wasn't even finished yet." See more »
While the movie was set in 1970, the "Nip-It" pinball machine shown in the diner was not manufactured until 1973. See more »
This movie was very well done indeed. Inspiring, convincing, well acted and great for all ages. The film and sound quality are A+ I wish more movies of this genre were made using the high standards used for this film. I was delighted to see Gavin MacLeod(from the Love Boat) and Robert Guillaume. I grew up in the 70's and this movie brought back some of my fondest memories as I'm sure it will for so many others. There is one very emotional scene that parents of children under 8 should be present for but other than that, this movie has the potential to inspire anyone from 8 to 120. Movie tip: forget the popcorn; bring tissue, lots of it.
