Henry is seen using a payphone to make stock trades. He is using fractions. While it could be just his personality/condition, US markets switched to decimals on April 9, 2001. Later in the movie the doctor shows the MRI scan on a tablet too advanced for pre-2001. See more »
The acting is good, it's competently shot, and has a nice location. The real problems are with this movie is it's tone and the adult characters. At first feels like a fun family movie but then turns into a dark, depressing Jason Bourne style thriller next. And all the adults are morons, especially the mom. Not a gigantic load of garbage but not amazing either.
