YMMV: In America
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Christy putting on a New York accent while helping Johnny rehearse. Several years later Sarah Bolger would star in The Spiderwick Chronicles playing - yep - a New Yorker.
- Retroactive Recognition: People these days will now easily recognise Sarah Bolger as Christy since she has starred in The Spiderwick Chronicles, Stormbreaker and The Tudors.
- Tear Jerker: When Mateo dies.
- Also, Christy's last wish: "Say goodbye to Frankie, dad.".
- Values Dissonance: Christy's "you're American already, it's disgusting" to Ariel comes across as a little racist to non-Irish viewers.
- What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Intended as a family film yet has mentions of a character with a brain tumour, a lengthy sex scene between the parents and Mateo dying of AIDS.
