Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The film's failure at the box office was mainly attributed to Harrison Ford's performance, which many critics found to be too forced and over-the-top.
  • During casting River Phoenix was passed on several times for the role of Charlie Fox for being too old (he was 15). When no age-appropriate Charlie could be found Phoenix's tape was brought again to Weir and, impressed by the actor, he decided to put the age issue to the side and give Phoenix the job.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): While Allie Fox and his family are being lashed by violent winds and near horizontal rain during a hurricane a couple of palm trees in the background are standing perfectly still.
  • Actors Martha Plimpton and 'River Phoenix' disliked each other while filming this movie. However, while filming the movie "Running On Empty" they became a couple.
