* HeReallyCanAct: Darlene Cates, aka Bonnie Grape, was cast after appearing as a guest on the Sally Jessy Raphael Show because director Lasse Holstrom could not find a professional actress big enough to play the part. Her role was expanded due to her surprising ability to act, despite having no experience (watch the scene in which Bonnie Grape confronts the Sheriff at the police station for a quick and powerful example).

One of the main difficulties the family is having concerns Arnie Grape (played by Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio), who is developmentally disabled which creates a great deal of problems for everyone involved, especially the multiple times he climbs the town water tower and refuses to get down for everyone, except his brother Gilbert.
