At one stage, this movie was going to be a vehicle for Paul Newman and Robert Redford, and it would have been their third pairing after Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) and The Sting (1973). See more »
After Walter and Jasmine have their fight, Walter is petting Jasmine and we hear Jasmine purring. The big cats, like lions and tigers, who roar, can not purr. Non-roaring cats, like the cheetah, do purr. It has to do with their vocal cords. See more »
During the end credits, the adult Walter's cartoons depict a variety of adventures. See more »
For the UK cinema release, the distributors requested a PG certificate from the BBFC and 21 secs of footage was cut to remove shots of flick knives and violence. DVD releases were upgraded to a 12 certificate and the cuts were reinstated. See more »
I have been told by many people this was a great movie and one I needed to watch. Well finally I watched it today and it didn't disappoint me. It has so many great elements to it. I laughed in some parts and cried my eyes out in others. I loved the line "...died with his (or her) boots on." It's a great statement about living your life to the fullest and believing in the things that really matter like love and honor. The actors were fabulous. I think young Haley Joel Osment has a lot to offer films and I hope we see much more of him in the future. Michael Caine never disappoints me and I love his Texas accent in the film. Overall, this is truly one movie fit for all ages. A true heartwarming film with a great message for anyone who will hear it.
