The scene where Isabel (Julia Roberts) and Nate (Owen Wilson) are drinking wine towards the end of the movie contains a Pretty Woman homage. Julia Roberts opens a hinged gift box and laughs out loud, just as her character did in Pretty Woman when Richard Gere gives her a necklace. See more »

"Wonder" is one of those emotional films that make you feel good in the end. The story of an outcast ten year-old boy with facial deformation that outdoes his schoolmates and becomes cherished in the end is a great entertainment although unrealistic. A school with only one wicked child is absolutely unusual and hard to believe. But the film is worthwhile watching, with Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson showing outstanding chemistry and nice characters. It is funny to see the fashion in the studios with Caucasian and Afro-American couples. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Extraordinário" ("Extraordinary")
