The lives of guards on Death Row are affected by one of their charges: a black man accused of child murder and rape, yet who has a mysterious gift.
William 'Wild Bill' Wharton:
Where y'all think you're goin'?
John Coffey: You a bad man.
William 'Wild Bill' Wharton: That's right, nigger. Bad as you'd want.
Paul Edgecomb: HEY! You keep a civil tongue on my block!
The sex of the mouse changes. When Mr. Jingles first appears, and then scuttles under the door way - the mouse is clearly male (distinguishing between the sexes of mice is easy because of the size of the genitals). However during the scene where John Coffey shares his cornbread Mr. Jingles is clearly a female mouse.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown, followed by the opening scene for place of film. Although it is now commonplace for films to not have opening credits, in 1999 it was somewhat rather unusually and it was considered for a trademark of director Frank Darabont.
