Description: This tender off-beat comedy has rubbed too many people the wrong way (or the right way for the wrong reasons) because of its outrageous slapstick, like something by Jim Carrey. The imaginary friend is cavortingly rude for a reason; he served to push the girlchild to do mischief for attention and as a cry for help.

I think it'd be great if they made us question that ourselves."

Interesting film facts (453 movies items)

"PolyGram was so disgusted with the final cut of the film that at the last minute they decided to find another studio to sell the distribution rights to. The film's producers showed the final cut to TriStar Pictures, Orion Pictures, and 20th Century Fox. TriStar was run by Mike Medavoy who called the film "a children's movie on drugs" and passed on it. Orion and 20th Century Fox passed on it for unknown reasons. Finally they showed the film to New Line Cinema. New Line CEO Bob Shaye loved the mov"
