Awesome family movie depicting one of America's best loved filmographer!
This movie is an absolute classic! It's Disney at its best for the wild at heart it is timeless. The relationship between the brothers makes the movie. Each character is beautifully woven and "real".

Inspired by imperfect but truly loving and good old American idealist parents, the boys leap out of the nest and clamor after their own dreams. It rings true to any wise parent, who knows that someday they will have to let go. Great movie for the whole family! A beautiful story of family ties, courage, perseverance and imperfect but admirable characters who each learn their very own lesson. It truly captures the essence of true American spirit! Watch for - The real Stouffer brothers who have cameos in the film as three "uncredited" ruffians (in the scene where the boys are driving to snow country).

Goofs

Marshall uses his brothers' toothbrushes (the green and yellow ones) to clean the toilet, then places them back in the holders with their names on them. Marty's is yellow, Mark's is green and Marshall's is blue. Later that night, Marty is using the blue toothbrush, Mark is using the dirty green, and Marshall is using the dirty yellow one.


Crazy Credits
