Movie Quote(s):
  • Niven: It's the kid from the spaceship. Get him off the car.
  • [After Sam rescues Andrew by shooting him] Andrew: [musingly] I can't believe you shot me. Sam: Well, what would you have done? Andrew: [nonchalant] Oh, I'd have shot you, of course.
  • Sam: So if the two of you are being shot at, which bullet do I take? Andrew: Why you must try for both, of course.
Movie Trivia:
  • At the start of the film when the boys are trying to convince Mary to go inside the fake spaceship, Andrew Nivens says, "She balked at Pirates of the Caribbean." Both Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, two of the films credited screenwriters, went on to write all three of the, "Pirates of the Caribbean," movies.
  • No less than nine writers worked on the script. Besides the credited writers Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and David S. Goyer, work with also done by James Bonny, Richard Finney, Michael Engelberg, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and the film's director, Stuart Orme. The final version mainly uses ideas from the Goyer and Orme rewrites.
