Trivia

When Jason is threatening Lucas at the water park and Billy challenges him to fight, Jason gets up and appears to kick Lucas (at around 1h 10 mins). Actually, when Jason came upon them, Lucas had taken off his left boot to start putting on his ice skates and Jason was kicking the left boot away so Lucas couldn't put it back on and escape, but during editing the sound mixer thought Jason was kicking Lucas so along with the sound of a kick he added Lucas groaning to correspond to that event.

Goofs

At about 37:50 min into movie, when Billy is in lunchroom speaking to kids, there are 6 flags hanging on the wall in the back ground. They are the Azerbaijan, Andorra, American Samoa, Rwanda, South Vietnam & Botswana world flags. They are suppose to hang down when you turn them to the right it will show the correct way the flag is right side up. Except for the American Samoa Flag, the one with the eagle on it. When it turns to the right it would show the flag upside down. See more »

Quotes

Howard Garvey: [24:50, in graveyard] So you're not scared at all?
Billy Kirkfield: Of stepping on dead people? No.
Howard Garvey: No, of what's gonna happen to you when you die.
Billy Kirkfield: Well, what's that supposed to mean? I'm definitely going to Heaven. My parents make me go to church and everything.
Lucas Lamb: That doesn't mean you get to go automatically. That's what my mom says,
Howard Garvey: I do get to go automatically, 'cause I'm a kid. Kids don't even have to be that good. It's like a rule.

best family film I've seen in last couple years
2 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

not for everyone -- semi sweet semi sad, some brilliant elements... and it all ends gloriously! Great job. Great story. Reminded me -- there is life, after life.

(And altho' you can't take the "things" of this world with you – You can take the person next to you…by helping them find life, after life. That's what Billy Kirkfield learns – you can take the person sitting next to you – a son, a daughter, a sister, brother – a friend, by pouring our "spirit" – our lives, into another – we can take them with us on the journey beyond this life).

Christopher Lloyd who plays a caretaker in the movie is EXCELLENT – and talks to the heroes - - 3 fifth grade boys intent on setting a world record. And he asks them how this setting a record, makes other people…happy? He tells the boys of attending a lot of funerals and that when people talk about living a good life…its not so much what we do or did that matters…as to how we did it. That being a good person may be a purpose all in itself. Being a friend – even to someone who doesn't want to be friends.

Isn't that after all what the greatest teacher of all modeled? Highly recommend. Great film.
