Trivia

At 20:58 on the DVD in the river walk scene with Dr. Carter and his wife Julia, director D. David Morin mentions that he had to "cross the 180" during editing because they were losing light during the shoot and didn't get all of the shots they needed to keep the eye lines straight during editing, so they had to flip the film over which is evident when the mole on the left side of Dr. Carter's face changes to his right side (20:48 and 21:00) and back (21:09).

Goofs

Director D. David Morin points out (DVD at 07:18) that Johnny's red on white Kurt Warner football jersey (02:15 to 06:58) turns into a white on red jersey (at around 4 mins) when he is in Dr. Drew Carter's office waiting for the doctor. David adds that the wardrobe lead (Nancy Terryn) was ill one day (about day 12 on the 15 day shoot) and he didn't notice the change. Apparently, that was the day the white jersey was used because at 31:34 when Johnny and Kayla start out on a bicycle montage and Johnny is in the red jersey, David notes the shot was taken on day one of the shoot when they hired a crane for the sweeping panorama. The only other white jersey shots are during Johnny's first day at school (40:15 to 41:03). See more »

Terrific Movie!!!!
26 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I was bored sitting here at home tonight. I love watching movies and couldn't find anything to watch. I stumbled across "Johnny" on netflix. These are my thoughts in regards to the movie "Johnny". I did not know what to expect when I first turned it on. Now after watching, I am proud to say that this movie is such an awesome movie. It is very inspirational. I think it can teach us all some valuable lessons if we pay close enough attention. It is nice to see a clean movie with an outstanding story line. I would highly recommend it for all to see. Keep in mind, it does involve the death of the boy Johnny who had Leukemia. So you might want to view it before allowing younger children to watch.
