Trivia

Dennis Quaid's character was a quarterback in high school. He also played a quarterback in Any Given Sunday (1999). If you notice the picture Bart has of his dad, it's a picture of Quaid in his #19 black jersey from Any Given Sunday. See more »

Goofs

In the 1985 scenes, the record store has a poster in the window for the first .38 Special record. This album came out in 1977, and was not a big commercial success at its time of release; its popularity was eclipsed by the band's subsequent releases. Additionally, it was already horribly out of date by the time this scene is set; no record store would be likely to display a poster for an album eight years old that was not commercially successful.

Quotes

Brickell: Let me ask you something Bart, what are you running from?
Bart: My dad. He, uh, he...
Brickell: ...he beat you, didn't he? Ya ain't got no poker face kid.
Bart: I carry that. I have to live with that, you know. I always will.
Brickell: Then write about it. Stop running from it. Let that pain become your inspiration.

Emotional throughout. Best inspirational film since The Passion of Christ. The song touched many. I think the film will touch and change many more!
