Trivia

The "voiceover" narration by the juvenile lead actor may remind many of Fred Savage in the TV series The Wonder Years (1988). It is not surprising that self-professed co-director/co-screenwriter of Little Manhattan, Mark Levin, wrote ten of "The Wonder Years" episodes, co-produced twenty-four episodes and was story editor for twenty-three episodes.

Goofs

From the hospital scene at 1:07:40 Gabe wears a cast on his right arm through the rest of the film, except for the scene from 1:12:47 to 1:13:00 where Gabe rides his Xootr kick scooter (identified at 0:25:35 in the DVD commentary) from the apartment to the tunnel in Central Park, which was actually the first scene shot because first day shooting was rained out at the planned location.

Quotes

[first lines]
Gabe: For those of you out there less experienced that me let me tell you something about girls. They're basically gross. See this is pretty much black and white from where i'm standing. Used to be back in the day maybe first or second grade popular wisdom was they give you cooties.

Great movie to see with the kids
25 September 2005 | by patrickjvSee all my reviews

Little Manhattan was a fun ride from beginning to end.

I took my wife and daughters who are 13 and 11 years old and everyone had a good time. I really lost my self in this story. It was good natured without being corny.

This is the first time I saw a movie that makes me want to visit New York.

With all of the mean spirited movies out today this reminds of how nice it is to enjoy a good story. I would like to see more of this kind of writing in every movie.

I plan to buy the DVD for my 11 year old when it becomes available.
