Goofs

The shirt Robbie is embroidering has an Interstate Highway system logo for I-66 on it; it should be a US Route logo for US 66. I-66 wouldn't exist for many years, and wasn't anywhere near where they went. See more »

Quotes

Bill Massey: As a man, there's only one thing you need to know about a woman.
George Devereaux: What's that?
Bill Massey: They're never the right temperature.
George Devereaux: No?
Bill Massey: Something to do with their plumbing. Reproduction. Whatever reason, most of the time... they're either too hot or too cold. Mostly too cold. So what you have to do... is carry a sweater or a jacket or something with you at all times. Something you can keep in the trunk of your car... or in your closet at work... for when their thermostat gets messed up.
George Devereaux: What else?
Bill Massey: That's it. ...

Crazy Credits

During the movie, we see Robbie doing cross stitch many times. At the end of the movie, we see Ann sitting in a chair, finishing the same cross stitch of their entire adventure, with "THE END." This goes right into the credits, which are done entirely in cross stitch. See more »

OK.. its about George Hamilton, right?
8 July 2010 | by shhazam2See all my reviews

Really enjoyed this story about an unusual family that got more interesting as the movie moved along on their journey from New York City to end eventually in Hollywood, California. To learn in the end that this may have been based on some real life adventures of actor George Hamilton was especially enjoyable; and, its not spoiling or taking away anything from this story to make that fact known here. You will enjoy watching how this story evolves whether or not you believe its really about George Hamilton. The separation of a middle age mother from her cheating husband has a familiar ring; but, how she and her two sons cope with her disconnection from her husband's money and support in 1953 is a sometimes funny and sad story to watch develop.
