Trivia

In the original movie trailer Gabe said he fell in love for two weeks and he was eleven years old like Rosemary's age. But in the movie it is actually shown (at 0:01:40 on the 2006 DVD) that Gabe fell in love for two and a half weeks and he was ten years old. This was because of a mistake or a change of lines.

Goofs

Both boards that are broken (Rosemary's and Tim's) have visible seams running down them where they are supposed to split. Tim's is very obvious. Rosemary's is more evident along the top portion of the board. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Gabe: For those of you out there less experienced that me let me tell you something about girls. They're basically gross. See this is pretty much black and white from where i'm standing. Used to be back in the day maybe first or second grade popular wisdom was they give you cooties.

Sweet and Well Done - Definitely a XMAS Sleeper
1 December 2005 | by LAKERS34See all my reviews

It's simple, it's cute, it's unpretentious, and it's pretty much blood-free. It tells a sweet story about innocence and romance which is applicable to all of us despite using 11 year-old kids (Josh Hutcherson, a "veteran" and Charlie Rose, a newcomer) as its main players...This film will remind many of you of "The Wonder Years", which of course isn't a bad thing (Wouldn't you say that was GREAT television??). There is a nice parallel in the story in that while the main character is falling in love, his own parents are falling out of it and headed for the splits.

Mark Levin (Wimbledon, and yes...The Wonder Years) turns in another solid effort and shows he is anything but complacent - He gets great work out of his actors and the cinematography makes Manhattan a sparkling place for all. The story is key in a film with no action, violence, or thrills and thankfully, the story here strikes a chord with just about everyone! See it now before it becomes a XMAS blockbuster!
