When Horace is refereeing the boys playing, he remarks that they can't even play soccer without squabbling. Since they are British, he should have said "football" since that's what they call it, but of course he is an American so he calls it "soccer". See more »

He used to be a guy I looked forward to seeing his films. And certainly, this isn't his worst film, but with its bland YA tone and little stylish distinction, he seems to be finding new ways to be mediocre. There's a couple cool design moments (puppet boy), Green's performances is a nice Gothic-Mary-Poppins turn, and the Coney Island battle is kinda fun otherwise, this is (yet another) not-very-good disappointment from the one-time king of quirky darkness.
