The name of "Coupland, Texas" on the Sheriff's shoulder patch was changed to "Copeland" to honor the President of the Texas Film Commision at the time, Tom Copeland. Even so, the name of Coupland is seen in the film, including on the side of the feed store. The bridge in the film is just to the northeast of town. See more »

Heartwarming Family Movie
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.
