It is established that the four souls stop appearing to Thomas when he is seven, which would be in 1966 or 67. However, there is a poster drawing on his bedroom wall of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. Those posters did not start to appear until after King and Robert Kennedy had both been assassinated in 1968. See more »

This movie has it all. I loved it the first time I saw it and still do every time I see it. The casting was perfect and the actors all have a wonderful chemistry together. I will never get tired of watching certain scenes, like the (last) stamp scene with Milo, when Penny realizes who the cop is and when Thomas hugs the cop (hilarious!!), when Thomas sings finally, when Milo has to say goodbye, there are just so many great scenes in this movie. And Robert Downey, Jr. just does a tremendous job - he is so talented. When the four spirits enter his body (at different times), it's amazing how well he portrays each one with such accuracy (especially as Penny), like he's really that person. The humor never misses a beat. This movie will probably always be in my top 5!!
