Trivia Originally, the author of the source book, Rodman Philbrick, also wrote the screenplay, but that screenplay was scrapped because it was too much like the book. See more »
Goofs While Max is waiting for his LD reading teacher, Kevin comes into the room, announces that he is Max's student tutor, and sits down. The counter immediately behind Kevin is bare. Kevin tells Max to start reading from his book. Max says that he doesn't have a book, and then we see that a backpack is on the counter immediately behind Kevin from which he gets a book on King Arthur. See more »

Quotes Maxwell Kane: [chasing the ambulance after finding out Kevin has died] You're supposed to give him a new body! Stop, you idiots! He's supposed to get a biogenetic body!
[Gwen steps out of the ambulance as Maxwell begins to sob]
Maxwell Kane: He was tested, and measured! He told me he'd be the first!
Gwen: [trying to calm him down] I know, listen to me! Kevin knew he wasn't going to live very long. He knew it was a matter of time. You see? What happened was, his heart just got too big for his body.
[she hugs him as he continues to cry]
Gwen: It's okay, honey, it's okay. You go home.
