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.
When the letter from Max is late, you can see that there are snails in Mary's mail box. Ordinary, paper mail is called "snail-mail" as it is too slow compared to Internet-based e-mail.
Mary Dinkle's eyes were the color of muddy puddles. Her birthmark, the color of poo.
In the U.S., a can with the label "tinned spaghetti" is shown. While this wording would be used in Australia, it is rather unlikely in the U.S., where "canned spaghetti" would be the preferred term.
Before the end credits the next quote appears: "God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends" by Ethel Watts Mumford.
