Trivia

Anya Gunnunderson's parting line to Heather Mancuso, "So Long. And thanks for all the fish" is a tribute to Doug Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The last book in that series was "So Long. And Thanks for All the Fish." See more »

Goofs

Olaf is home for Christmas in Wisconsin, but in just about every outdoor scene, there is green grass and leaves on all the trees, something you'd never see in Wisconsin in December. Wrongfully considered a mistake: Actually Anya explains how they moved to warmer climate to avoid the harsh Wisconsin winters. See more »

Ah! That's it!
4 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It took me a while to figure out what about this movie was bugging me. I loved the story, the dialog was fine, the actors were great. Finally, I realized I was watching a filmed play. Once I got the mindset that I was watching a play as opposed to a movie I enjoyed it twice as much.

Have watched it three times. Love it!

Not too sugary or predictable, I fell in love with his parents. I'm tired of watching movies where everyone looks like they just stepped out of a salon. This family was very "real".

The trick is to get in a "I'm watching a play" mindset and you won't have that "This movie was just okay" attitude.
