A coming-of-age story about a shy, young boy sent by his irresponsible mother to spend the summer with his wealthy, eccentric uncles in Texas.
According to the postage stamp on the envelope of the letter Walter (Haley Joel Osment) gets from Mae (Kyra Sedgwick), the movie takes place during the summer of 1962.
Adult Walter: Yes.
Sheriff: This is Sheriff Brady. I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. It's about your uncles.
When the boy runs across the bridge he is on the wrong side. The close-ups and the distance shot do not match.
During the end credits, the adult Walter's cartoons depict a variety of adventures.
