Trivia

In the Mirror Maze (at around 35 mins) and after, viewers should realize that although Tom and Thomas are wearing identical white corduroy jackets with hooded orange zippered liners, Thomas' liner is zipped up so his front is orange while Tom's liner is unzipped, so his front is black. A more subtle difference is that Thomas' hair is parted on his left while Tom's hair is parted in the middle. Viewers may confuse them before the Mirror Maze when, after Thomas and his father enter the Space Museum with tickets, Tom sneaks in (at around 34 mins) by calling out "Mom, wait for me", pretending she is ahead of him -- staff thinking he were Thomas would aid his ruse.

It's a mystery why this movie was not marketed on a larger scale..
8 December 2002 | by wouvinSee all my reviews

Being one of the people who were an extra in this movie, I still wonder why this movie did get so little attention, I think the distribution company had a too busy release list to really pay attention to this rather good movie.

Off course he was very concentrated on set, so I did not get to speak to him, but everybody knows Sean Bean as a fine actor, and also Aaron and the rest of the cast and crew did their best.

So that's why I think it's a shame, after so much hard work, that the movie received so little marketing effort. See the movie, it's really nice.

I am grateful for the experience of being a part of this movie, and will do everything I can to make my own movie, which I am currently producing, a great success.
