Did You Know?

Both writers/directors are married and wrote the script within 6 weeks together.

Factual errors: When Gabe and Rosemary are trying to make a date, Rosemary says she cannot meet Sunday morning because she is studying for the ERBs to get into Private School. In order to get into the New York private schools you have to take the ISEEs not the ERBs.

Gabe: Where's that Rosemary? The Rosemary I loved? Not this alien with her crazy weekends!

User Review

Great movie to see with the kids

Rating: 10/10

Little Manhattan was a fun ride from beginning to end.

I took my wife and daughters who are 13 and 11 years old and everyone had a good time. I really lost my self in this story. It was good natured without being corny.

This is the first time I saw a movie that makes me want to visit New York.

With all of the mean spirited movies out today this reminds of how nice it is to enjoy a good story. I would like to see more of this kind of writing in every movie.

I plan to buy the DVD for my 11 year old when it becomes available.
