When Bob is at the amusement park & walking down the ramp to get on the roller coaster (which is really Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA), it's obvious he is going the wrong way down the exit ramp rather than using the real entrance. In the next shot, he is shown on the other side of the roller coaster track getting into the coaster. See more »
I first saw this movie when it came out in 1993 and then I thought it was a brilliant film and I was one of the many people sobbing in the theatre. Last night was the 3 year anniversary of the death of my father to leukemia and this movie happened to be on TV. I got to watch it from an entirely different perspective and I have to say, after watching my father deteriorate and pass away, this movie was one of the most accurate portrayals of the last months & days of a cancer victims life (especially the death scene itself). I just wanted to give it my highest praise for showing the pain that is inflicted on all the family and reminding me my dad is finally out of pain & got to "ride his roller-coaster"
