BIXBY NOT Broken Arrow
5 July 2005 | by garnetavon19See all my reviews

This movie was not based in Broken Arrow it was based in Bixby Oklahoma it's a little ways aways from Broken Arrow. I grew up and went to school there and when they are eating in the cafeteria thats the art room this is a very good movie although I don't like the fact that all the Disney movies (with a few exceptions)one or more of the parents are gone. Why is this? Does anyone know? Tex is a good movie and the most of the landmarks that are in the movie are still there in Bixby and that little town is growing very quickly. If anyone has any questions I would love to answer them. I would recommend this movie to anyone living in the Bixby/Tulsa/Mounds area. Thank you
