At 0:00:58 in the director/writer commentary on the 4/4/2006 20th Century Fox DVD the husband and wife team of Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett mention the original concept was for a fourth grade love story, but it evolved into a fifth grade love story. See more »
Near the end of the movie, when Gabe first sees his parents reconnecting, Leslie has longer hair. Within a few moments, it's seen at a much shorter length. See more »
For those of you out there less experienced that me let me tell you something about girls. They're basically gross. See this is pretty much black and white from where i'm standing. Used to be back in the day maybe first or second grade popular wisdom was they give you cooties.

In Manhattan, the 10 ¾ years old Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) finds his first love when he meets his former kindergarten mate, the eleven years old Rosemary (Charlie Ray), in his karate classes. Confused with his new feelings and with the divorce process of his beloved parents, Leslie (Cynthia Nixon) and Adam (Bradley Whitford), he experiences the delightful unknown sensation of being in love for the first time.
When my friends from the best rental in Rio de Janeiro recommended this movie, I was quite reluctant to buy it. Fortunately I listened to their advice and saw this great little gem. The sensitive director Mark Levin has captured many adorable scenes and sequence of this lovely and charming central pair in delightful situations. Further, orphans of "Sex & the City" like me have the chance to see Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) and Willie Garson (Stanford Blatch) again. I would like to thank you, Cris and my dearest friends of Imaginario, for your recommendation. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "O ABC do Amor" ("The ABC of Love")
