Trivia

To add drama to the soapbox derby races, screenwriter Corbin Bernsen wrote in a maneuver he termed "butt blast" that supposedly allows the driver to change the momentum of the car, but that in real life would violate the Principle of the Conservation of Momentum. See more »

Family feel-good.
17 February 2014 | by (Newark, England) – See all my reviews

Apple pie as they come but a very touching and heartwarming family film. I have no issues with being candy sweet and wishfulness, it takes the brakes off and allows indulgence. A boys pain turns to dreams and determination regarding the soap box derby and along the way he touches the hearts of those around him. A little schmaltzy in the Christian area but a refreshing conclusion with a different set of ideas of what it is to win. It was well paced and very cute but sometimes that is what is needed over cocoa and popcorn, for me anyway. I would imagine kids between 8 - 14 might just enjoy this movie. The boy in me did. It was nice to see Ralph Waite (old man Walton) in the credits as the derby manager, as I said. Apple pie !
