A tale of friendship between two unlikely pen pals: Mary, a lonely, eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year old, severely obese man living in New York.
The postage stamps in the film used by Mary feature an image of Dame Edna Everage, a character played by comedian Barry Humphries, who also narrates the film.
Mary Dinkle's eyes were the color of muddy puddles. Her birthmark, the color of poo.
When Max is seen in court the judge is seen to be wearing a old powdered wig, back dropped by an American flag. This wig however identifies a magistrate operating in a court in a country that is part of the British Commonwealth (such as Australia, Canada, Britain, etc) and is not worn by American judges.
Before the end credits the next quote appears: "God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends" by Ethel Watts Mumford.
