Jonathan Taylor Thomas,
As Wesley is running down the stairs putting on the robe right after he jumps out of the tub, you can see that he is clearly wearing white boxers. See more »
Have I met you before?
I seriously doubt it.
Well, cos you look just like this lady always comes down to the RC, asks me all sorts of questions. Always leaves me feeling like somebody's just grabbed my gonads, gently swung 'em out, looked all 'round behind 'em.

In the DVD version, you see Johnny smothering Blake with a pillow for several seconds, before assaulting a very breathless Blake. These two scenes are not included in the television version on Sky. See more »
This movie blew me away completely. I am a Jonathan Taylor Thomas fan, and had been waiting to see him in a new movie. Some of his others films were pretty corny, and I was afraid that he would not escape his "bubble gum, sugar-sweet" image, However, this film proves he can do drama as well as the next guy. Everyone in my family enjoyed the movie tremendously- especially me. Ellen Burnstyn is superb as Mattie, the elderly God-fearing woman practically looking forward her to funeral, until Wesley comes along. He brings youth and joy to her life, and she brings intelligence, truth, and God into his. Both sides benefit from this experience. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a heartfelt, meaningful drama that is also sweet and funny.
